According to District Commissioner for Karonga, Rodrick Mateuma, the council has so far constructed two houses.

“The houses have been constructed at Kasantha and Mwenelondo and we intend to build more as we go along so that we reach many people with albinism in the district,” said Mateuma.

Mateuma expressed gratitude to Government for its commitment to providing funds for the project.

He appealed to community members to protect persons with albinism from any form of abuse.

The Chairperson for the Karonga Association of Persons with Albinism (APAM), Chawanangwa Nyirenda, was thankful to Government for the initiative and called for its continuity.

 “A lot of people with albinism in the country live in fear because they are in houses that are unsecured. I, therefore, ask the Government to continue funding the project,” Nyirenda said.

Government plans to construct 793 houses for persons with albinism across the country.
