VIDEO: Trying to tackle albino abuse with film

A new film is trying to raise awareness of the plight of albinos in Tanzania and Malawi.

There has been a sharp rise in attacks on people with albinism, a congenital condition where there’s a lack of pigmentation in the skin.

Albinos have been murdered and maimed, because of the belief that their body parts can bring wealth and cure illnesses.

Zuhura Yunus reports.
