Fact: There are people willing to pay up to Tsh 100 million for body parts of people with Albinism
Fact: There’s a spike in killings of people living with Albinism during political elections (both in Tanzania & neighboring countries).
Fact: The body of 1 year old Yohana Bahati was found just yesterday with legs and arms missing. She had been taken from her mother’s arms by force. Her mother is fighting for her life in hospital as I type. (I have been informed by the Executive Director of Under The Same Son that it does not look good).
Fact: It is election season in Tanzania. This killing will not end here. . . unless me and you do something and/or say something about this.
Myth: As an individual you can do nothing about the situation.
Note: We Can All Do Something to Stop Albino Killings in Tanzania
