Malawi: We are called 'moving cash'- Albinos

Malawians living with albinism have expressed concern that, besides living in constant fear of being abducted or killed, they also endure painful ridicule as some citizens pour scorn on them.

Presenting the various challenges they faced, during an audience with President Peter Mutharika, the executive director of the Association of People living with Albinism in Malawi, Boniface Massa, said they were currently "living in hell and not in a nation nicknamed as the warm heart of Africa".

"When we are moving in the streets, some Malawians are calling us 'moving cash' or 'mobile money', insinuating that if they could abduct us they could sell us very quickly," he said.

Massa said such insults and threats were psychologically tormenting, considering that a number of albinos had been brutally murdered.
