Police have arrested five people suspected to be connected to the abduction of a 24-month-old baby with albinism in Chikwawa District.
National Police Service spokesperson James Kadadzera said two out of the five are the baby’s mother and grandmother, who were staying with the baby.
“We are going to make progress because we are sure that we are going to find the perpetrators and they will face the law. We did the same in Mangochi where we even found where the body [of a victim] was buried,” Kadadzera said.
But Association of Persons with Albinism President Ian Simbota said their interest was not on arrests but tracing the baby’s body.
The baby was abducted on March 26 from Tulusida Village, in the area of Traditional Authority Ngabu, in the district.
