Albino's Grave Dug Up, Bones Taken
The grave of a person with albinism from Izengwabasumba settlement in Nyamalulu village, Geita district in Tanzania was descretated early July 2010. The grave of Zawadi Mangidu (22), was vandalized even though it was cemented on the surface. The vandalizers dug through from the non-cemented parts of the grave, exhumed the body and filled the dug-out area with sand.
