Tshwantsho Tshabalala was among those to join the protest action and he wanted to set the record straight on some of the myths surrounding people living with albinism.

Tshabalala added the false believe that albinos’ body parts could be used as muthi to bring a person luck has resulted in people with the condition fearing for their lives.
