Albinos rally behind Premier on killings

From The Citizen, Dar es Salaam
By Sunday Citizen Reporters
Prime Minister Mizengo Pinda's increasingly candid and emotive crusade against the ritual killings of albinos received a boost yesterday, with the announcement of a demonstration in the lakeside town of Mwanza in his support.

A group of albinos in the Lake Zone, which has been the epicentre of numerous brutal attacks on people suffering from the skin condition by crooks sent by witchdoctors to harvest their body parts, said they would demonstrate tomorrow to endorse Mr Pinda's stand against the killings.
