Albino killings in Tanzania

Sorce: Under the sun

It is very sad to see how albinos are killed in Tanzania with a belief that their body parts have magical power by making somebody very successful in business and eventually become tycoon. Little have been done so far to protect them, and those who were caught up with albino parts, no one has ever been convicted despite that this act has been in the country for more than three years.
Albinos in Tanzania have been neglected in almost all social sectors despite their numerous problems which are well known by the government. It is said the average life expectancy of albino in Tanzania is 3o years, while in developed countries, is as same as general population.
