Zambian albinos living in fear of being killed


ALBINOS have continued to live in fear of being killed for their body parts, the Albino Foundation of Zambia has said.

The foundation says the increasing number of murders of people living with albinism is a source of worry and concern.

Foundation executive director John Chiti wants the perpetrators of gruesome murders of people living with albinism to found and punished.

Chiti’s comments come after members of the foundation put to rest an albino man who was found dead in the maize field with missing body parts at Yamene farms along Chipata-Lundazi road.

The victim was found with missing eyes, tongue and both arms.

After the body was picked and deposited at Chipata Central Hospital, Eastern Province police Commissioner Lackson Sakala appealed to the public would be missing their relative, to report to the police and help identify the body but it had remained unclaimed for more than two weeks.

Members of the the Zambia Albino foundation then traveled from to Chipata and buried the deceased at St. Ann’s Cemetery in Chipata.

Chiti said since his team received a report of murder, they had been working with the authority in looking for the relative of the decease but the search had proved futile.

“Despite the brutal way in which he was killed with body parts chopped off, our organization is committed to seeing that he has a decent burial and his soul be put to rest. We have taken the responsibility of burying the body as no one came to claim it, for over two weeks,” said Chiti.

  1. Cryptocurrency is a digital form of currency that’s transferred peer-to-peer through the internet. Fidelity is here to help you gain access to assets like bitcoin, the first and largest asset in the growing category, with expertise in security and reliable support. And which platforms you want to target from the get-go. Think about MetaMask. Why did they initially release their wallet as a browser-based extension? Because blockchain is originally a desktop-centric, networked technology, and there are plenty of instruments to develop a bitcoin wallet on this platform. Because people are likely to appreciate using this product while browsing through coin charts that usually occupy a lot of space on the screen, and a pop-up window in the corner doesn’t stand in the way. Accept Crypto Payments
    Yet another great platform for AI crypto trading is TradeSanta, which is a cryptocurrency trading software and bot that helps users navigate the crypto market and leverage the fluctuations in value. CoinMarketApp is a mobile application that provides easy access to information about various cryptocurrencies. As a user, you can quickly view cryptocurrency prices, market capitalization, exchange markets, coin details, charts, crypto news, and information on live, upcoming, and finished ICOs. The app offers alerts on over 1000 cryptocurrencies, including popular ones like Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum, IOTA, Cardano, Stellar, Ripple, Litecoin, and many others. Additionally, CoinMarketApp now includes a portfolio feature that lets you manage your cryptocurrency investments in one place. Once you purchase crypto through an exchange, the exchange typically holds it in a custodial wallet. Most exchanges store assets in offline “cold storage” for safekeeping. If you want to take custody of the cryptocurrency yourself, most exchanges allow you to transfer it to your “hot” or “cold” wallet, along with the private keys for that cryptocurrency.

  2. On the flip side, if you have enough faith in Orlando to beat Los Angeles outright as a five-point ‘dog, you can place $100 to win $180. There is a sliding scale on the money-line point-spread correlation, with the favorite numbers rising relative to how many points they lay. A three-point favorite to win outright is just -160 (risk $160 to win $100), while a seven-point favorite is a chalkier bet at -320 (risk $320 to win $100). A point spread is a popular form of wagering on football. It shows each team with a (+) or (-) handicap, commonly referred to as the ‘line’. You win a point spread by predicting the winner of a game with the line factored into the final score. The accompanying odds determine the ratio of risk to reward just like with a moneyline bet.  Along with providing NBA Las Vegas Odds, VegasInsider is also the leader in betting numbers for the most popular sports that are wagered on in the United States.
