Unknown thugs reportedly killed a 25-year-old woman living with albinism in Mulanje district for ritual purposes.
Police confirmed that the woman identified as Violet Kanyama was murdered on Wednesday evening in Gwana Village in the mountainous southern region district.
Albinism is a genetically inherited condition, in which people lack pigmentation.
Witchdoctors reportedly buy albino body parts to make “magic” potions.
Police believe the killers are selling their victims’ limbs, hair, skin and genitals to traditional medicine practitioners who make potions promising to make people wealthy.
According to police, the murder victim was last seen with her lover moving around the area.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
