Residents troop to watch obituary poster of an albino for the first time

- Residents in parts of Kadjebi in the Volta Region were shocked when they spotted the obituary poster of a person with albinism

- It appears they were extremely curious to catch a glimpse of the obituary poster

There was utter dismay in Kadjebi in the Volta Region when residents woke up to spot the obituary poster of an albino on various walls.

In Ghana, many families prefer not to print out obituary posters of their deceased members who suffer from albinism in order to avoid stigma and unnecessary attention.

However, the family of the late Gbeti Grace, an ablbino, decided to broke the norm by pasting obituary photos of their daughter on walls.

This attracted attention from many residents of Kadjebi who rushed in their numbers to have a look at the albino obituary photo.

Their curiosity and shock may have been aroused due to a very popular myth in Ghana which suggests ‘albinos don’t die, they just disappear’.

The late Gbeti Grace worked as an Office Assistant at Headquarters of Albinism Association of Ghana in Accra before her demise.

She died at the Kadjebi Government Hospital a few months ago after giving birth to a pair of triplets, Prime News Ghana reports.

Gbeti Grace was buried on Friday, June 22, 2018, at Kadjebi.
