A 34-year-old South African woman who reportedly tried to sell an albino child to a traditional healer has been sentenced to 20 years imprisonment by a Court in northern KwaZulu-Natal.
The woman reportedly wanted the traditional healer to pay 100 000 Rand for the 11-year-old child.
The traditional healer, James Mthembu, reported the matter to the Police. The woman wanted the traditional healer to use the child for medicine.
Authorities hoped the sentence addressed the myth of killing people living with albinism for the purpose of traditional medicines.
