INTRODUCTION
ommunity radio station, Radio kwenje, Muvi TV and Zambia news and information
services (ZANISE) reported a sad development in their news headlines on 8th
November 2017 in which a 19 years old girl from Chama district was attacked and
her right hand chopped off by unknown people. This case attracted national attention as it
also went viral on social media. Many people and organizations condemned the attack and
some expressed interest in following up the matter.
Due to the fact that the young girl who was attacked is a person with albinism, the albino
foundation took keen interest in the matter and it became a major concern because the
foundation had earlier recorded other cases of the same nature. Now it was evident enough
that ritual attacks against people with albinism are happening and increasing in Zambia. as
the foundation is mandated to deal with issues affecting the welfare of persons with
albinism in the country, it sourced for support from its partners/stakeholders in order to
carry out a campaign against ritual killings in Chama district. The following is therefore, a
detailed report of the said project
