Father implicated in the Murder of his Daughter

News has emerged that a man in Mwanza (a town in the North-western part of Tanzania) has been arrested in connection with the murder of his albino daughter, Eunice, a 14- year-old girl.

According to the police, the evidence collected so far puts the father on the spot.

“The evidence collected so far shows that the father to the albino girl is a principal in the murder of his daughter. Though the evidence is not conclusive, he is clearly involved,” said the Mwanza commander of police.

A witchdoctor has also been caught in connection with the murder.

It is disturbing that a parent can collude with other people to kill his daughter for the sake of money. It is sickening to even imagine that such a thing can and could be true.

A parent is the last person a child can run to for refuge when people all around are baying for their (the child’s) blood. Now, when parents join in the bandwagon of perpetrators of albino killings, and kill their own children, it beats all logic.

Where are albino children “supposed” to get security, if ways and means of how and when to kill them are devised, by their parents, under the very roofs of their houses?

This is a very grave state of affairs.

Tanzania is bleeding – profusely! Anyone out there who can help stop this needless flow of human blood?
