Albinism affects around one in every 1,400 Tanzanians, far higher than average

Police in Tanzania have arrested sixty witchdoctors or traditional healers, in connection with the ritual killing of at least 10 children.

The children were killed in January and many had their body parts removed.

There is a belief in Tanzania that using human body parts in rituals can bring wealth and good luck.

Meanwhile, Tanzania’s Inspector general of police, Simon Sirro has ordered every traditional healer to obtain a licence.

He has also requested institutions like religious leaders and politicians to join the fight against ritual killings.
