Presidential advisor on youths affairs, Simon Vuwa Kaunda on Tuesday presented his nomination papers in readiness of the May 21 Tripartite Elections.

Speaking soon after the brief ceremony which took place at St Maria Gorret Teachers Development centre at Nkhata Bay Boma, Vuwa addressed a political rally in which he urged people of Nkhata bay to vote for him as Member of Parliament and Peter Mutharika as the president.

Kaunda cited a number of developments in Nkhatabay such as Mzuzu Nkhatabay road, Nkhatabay jetty on Lake Malawi and the newly built Nkhatabay Bus Depot.

“We have also a new hospital here in Nkhatabay and we have new market in Nkhatabay all this is courtesy of Professor Arther Peter Mutharika ,” He said.

He urged youths to report anyone perpetrating violence  against people of albinism and indeed any form of violence against women.

Recently a dark crowd engulfed Kande area in Nkhata Bay after a person with albinism was hacked to death in his house around 10pm when he was in bed with his seven-year-old son.

Police spokesperson in Nkhata Bay Peter Kalaya identified the victim as 54-year-old Yassin Kwenda Phiri who was working as a hospital attendant at Kande Health Centre.

The murder of Kwenda Phiri comes at a time when human rights groups, especially those that advocate for the rights of people with albinism have been complaining of delayed court cases on the murders of people with albinism.

Kalaya explained that the unknown assailants entered Kwenda Phiri’s house through a window and chopped off both his hands before fleeing with them.

The gruesome murder of Kwenda Phiri in the presence of his seven-year-old-son shocked people of Kande who think they might have done much more to prevent his death.

Kaunda said any such criminal incidences should be reported to Malawi Police as soon as possible.
