Skip to comments.Albino girl, 11, killed and beheaded in Swaziland ’for witchcraft’
Posted on 08/22/2010 11:52:06 AM PDT by LibWhacker
An 11-year-old albino girl from Swaziland was shot dead in front of her friends and then beheaded in what police believe was a ritual murder.
The child had been washing clothes and bathing at a river with friends and was returning home when she was grabbed by a man wearing a balaclava.
As her friends looked on, the man shot her in the back before dragging her away. Her headless body was found upriver a short time later.
The murder is the latest in a series of albino killings in Sub-Saharan Africa, where sufferers of the rare skin pigmentation condition are concentrated.

Africa will always be a backwards place until they get rid of their feudal overlords, the chiefs by day and the chiefs by night.
I’m never going to get used to this “cultural diversity” bull****.
Think this will be prosecuted as a hate crime?
How have the Africans managed to stay so stupid for so long?
Amazing, isn’t it?
The west would still be like that had it not been for the rise of Christianity. The west will become increasingly more like that as Christianity is rejected.
Talk about not fitting in...
LOL!!! I thought the same thing!
Hey - liberals say all cultures are equal...
‘How have the Africans managed to stay so stupid for so long?’
Practice...lots of practice.
Stated more succinctly - Africa will always be a backwards place.
Remember, “all cultures are equal”
Probably what is to become the fate of light skinned folk.
No, the nutty ‘culturally equal’ practice of witchcraft in that area of the world uses albinos only... white people’s body parts don’t ‘work’...
On his head? Must have truly been a sight!
That said, I think he should have been shot for pure stupidity!
Poor child, it’s heart breaking to hear these things. Another reason that Africa is and will always be a third world continent.
It’s called evolution. Africa may catch up with the civilized world—in 100,000 years.
The west would still be like that had it not been for the rise of Christianity. The west will become increasingly more like that as Christianity is rejected
you are very right!! this country is falling like a rock toward this type of bahevior. We have always had extremeists but they were never accepted as mainstream. With the new “tolerance” kick, we seem to accept anything in the name of diversity....well, killing an albino because he/she is a witch is indeed diverse. But of course there are those who would avoid condemning the action based on the perps upbringing,country, race, etc. Let’s welcome more illegal aliens into our country, let’s get a bunch more from the middle east (where they can’t even get along with each other) let’s open our doors to every piece of human debris who wants to make this home. These people do not want to integrate with our society, they want to take it over. Control them, regulate them, supervise their immigration or lose the country
wouldnt he have to be wearing bacalava, which means a helluva messy eater?
Women in this country are already empowered with killing their unborn child if they decide they don't like the results of pre-natal genetic tests. Or...if they merely feel like it.
We may have more clinically neat and sophisticated means of effecting the same ends, but there are large and vocal segments of this society that are no better, or any different, and the rest of society gives sanction to their activities by turning a blind eye.
My neighbor’s 17 year old kid just got back from a Christian mission trip to Swaziland.....I guess their work didn’t do to much good.....
Anyone who can equate the killing and beheading of an eleven-year old girl with abortion is as morally repugnant as any African witch doctor, only less forgivable.
So long as this superstitious ignorance prevails in this country it will continue to become more and more like Africa.
Let us see...this albino girl was killed because a genetic irregularity made her undesireable in her society. A sophisticated, western mom is told her child will be born with Down's syndrome and decides to have it torn apart in the womb.
Nope. I don't see any moral equivalence there...< /sarc>
Actually, the abortion is probably more egregious since it's the child's own mother that sees the child as an inconvenience.
Remember, the only differences we have is the color of our skin. (sarc!)
A huge continent of untold riches that has never done anything but cause trouble for all who have touched it. It’s a jinxed continent.
“superstitious ignorance” Most leftists and atheists (mostly the same folks) use that to mean Christianity.
Yes a Henry Ford or Wright brothers will never appear there.
It’s their culture, we must respect it. “Liberals” will respect any culture as long it’s not Western...
It’s witchcraft. The witch doctors use body parts and blood to make potions for rich powerful people to BUY.
Check out this slide show.
I am appalled at the generalization and defamation of these sub-Saharan cultures. In post racial America where the President has declared that he is a mongrel and that our culture is not superior to any other, we have to go and demean these poor folks for killing innocent children. On the other hand, in Kenya they would have simply sold her for a higher price.
baklava is a Greek dessert. Balaclava is a head covering
that exposes only the eyes, nose and mouth. It’s
real popular with SWAT teams and terrorists.
While in Zimbabwe in the 80s, I read an article in the local paper. A passenger got on a bus in Harare. The driver made a comment about the passenger’s being an albino and an altercation between the two occurred. Evidently, that’s quite the insult.
Welcome to the new Zimbabwe! We are on our way.
Zim has never been on my list of places to visit.
There is little to recommend the place except as
as example of what Marxist thuggery does to a
Tired eyes today..... I read this as happening in Switzerland on my first pass. Hmm.... Then I remembered the Amish are active there. Could be....
Are your parents Pro-Choice? I guess you got lucky!
So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.
“Anyone who can equate the killing and beheading of an eleven-year old girl with abortion is as morally repugnant as any African witch doctor, only less forgivable”
Could you please explain this? Are you pro-choice or do you just think it is less evil to kill a baby in the womb than to kill an 11 year old?
Also what is superstitous about the other posters position?
Thank you in advance for your answers.
If you do not understand the difference between a man killing other people’s children as a threat to the entire society and a woman making the tragic decision not to deliver the child she is pregnant with, there is little hope for you, or a society comprised of such people.
As sad and despicable as a woman choosing to abort her child might be, she is no threat to anyone else. She is not a threat to you or your children. The mad-man who would kill other people’s children is.
There is virtually no hope for people who do not see this difference.
I’m not an albino, nor are the majority of the people on earth, so this man is no threat to me or society. By your sick logic.
Pleas see my last post:
All ignorance is superstition.
By all means check out post #46. A more superb example of ignorance could scarce be found.
“Its real popular with SWAT teams and terrorists.”
I think you repeated yourself there.
