American pop star Madonna poses with Malawi's folktale banjo musician, Lazarus, at Chilembwe Primary School, Kasungu District, in Malawi, the Warm Heart of Africa.
People with albinism have been facing challenges in Malawi. Some of them have been abducted, while others have seen their body parts being chopped while alive.
At the moment, Joseph Kachingwe, a 12-year-old boy with albinism in Phalombe District of Southern Malawi, went missing on July 6 this year and police are yet to recover his body.
National Police spokesperson, James Kadadzera, says six people have, so far, been arrested in connection with the suspected murder of the boy.
And, against such a background, Madonna's pose with Lazarus serves as a condemnation of people who attack albinos.
