Albinos fear politicians might use them for election rituals

Persons with albinisms in Ghana say they are in danger as the nation approaches the electioneering season since they are used for rituals by the politicians.

The albinos allege politicians use them for various rituals during elections to enable them win.

The Executive Director of the Ghana Association of Persons with Albinism, Newton Komla Katseku, made the revelation in an interview on Onua 95.1Fm News.

He explained that persons with albinism are panicking as the elections are approaching so it is important for the government and security services to give adequate protection to persons with albinism.

Mr. Katseku said they have consistently raised the issue with the government on the need to provide adequate security for their members yet nothing is done and as such they are being sacrificed by politicians for their selfish gains.
