FOCUSING DISABILITY RIGHTS AT MALAWI’S 57 YEARS OF INDEPENDENCE 6th July, 2021
On behalf of Malawians of disabilities, we join all Malawians in commemorating the 57th independence cerebration. I n 1964, Malawians were filled optimism of a Malawi that is free from whatever form of oppression, marginalization and above all, stigma and discrimination. However, 57 years down the line, persons with disabilities experience more of the affirmation.
It is therefore, our call to the government and all other stake holders to ensure persons with disabilities in Malawi enjoy rights freedom to fullest just like any other citizen.
It is through this, that the independence will be real. What we need is real inclusion and genuine accessibility.
