As the world commemorates International Albinism Awareness day today, people with albinism have been challenged to get into politics and to assume leadership positions.
The call was made by legal practitioner and disability rights' activist Advocate Abraham Mateta, during pre-commemorations of the day organised by Alive Albinism Initiative in Harare on Tuesday.
Speaking on the sidelines of the event, Deaf Zimbabwe executive director Ms Barbara Nyangairi, challenged the government to act on the inclusive education policy, saying it will help school children with albinism who have special learning needs.
The United Nations General Assembly adopted a resolution proclaiming, the 13th of June as International Albinism Awareness Day after the United Nations Human Rights Council adopted a resolution in 2013 calling for the prevention of attacks and discrimination against persons with albinism.
