Mariam Staford Bandaba has raised an alarm of being attacked in Tanzania by a gang of men who chopped off her arms.
Mariam explained to the BBC that this act was done with the belief that albino’s body parts had magic properties and could be very useful.
Though her arm was chopped off, she is able to work as a weaver thanks to the timely intervention of her doctor.
