Tanzania albinos targeted again

with 2 comments

Tanzanian police say another albino man has been murdered – the 26th victim in the country in under a year.

The attackers reportedly severed the man’s right foot and genitalia. His wife, also an albino, was also injured.

Witchdoctors want the parts for potions they say make people rich, reports BBC correspondent Vicky Ntetema.

In an undercover report last week, she was offered albino body parts by witchdoctors, who said their clients included police officers.

Newsvine – Tanzania albinos targeted again.

Terrible news…Just plainly terrible…

  1. Dear Lord! I have never heard of this.
    How horrid! Twisted, backwards, evil.
    Somebody needs to smack those monsters into the 21st century.

  2. Well, I don’t think it’s going to be easy. 👿
    It’s been going around for months, though it haven’t had a lot of publicity. You know, Tanzania is not a country that gets easily to the news… 😦
