Kenyan albino back home from TZ

From Capital News, Nairobi, Kenya

Robinson Mkwama, the Kenyan living with albinism, who was rescued by police in Tanzania after his friend’s failed attempt to sell him to witchdoctors has arrived back in the country.

The traumatised man was tricked by a long-time friend, Nathan Mutei, to accompany him to Mwanza with the promise of a job as a lorry loader.

The 20 year old was given heavy security escort from Tanzania where he left Mutei serving 17 year jail term.

“I used to be a street boy, until I was rescued and taken to school. After high school, I got a job at a hotel in Kitale, where I met Mutei - who told me that there was someone in Tanzania looking for a truck conductor and I believed him,” he narrated on Saturday.
