For the first time in the history of the Mpumalanga legislature, a parliament for people with albinism was held on June 21.

This was designed to show them appreciation and offer them equal treatment as South Africans.

“We appeal for greater protection, stop abuse”,
“We need equal access to health care, social services, employment opportunities”, and “Dispel the myth surrounding albinism
