There was utter dismay in Kadjebi in the Volta Region in Ghana when residents woke up to spot the obituary poster of an albino on various walls.
It appears they were extremely curious to catch a glimpse of the obituary poster on walls as they were seen in groups.
In Ghana, there’s a popular myth that ‘albinos don’t die, they just disappear’ and for the people of Kadjebi it was the first time in the history of their time seeing and hearing the demise of a person with albinism, and let alone see an obituary poster.
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 albino, decided to broke the norm by pasting obituary photos of their daughter on walls.
The 29-year-old late Gbeti Grace was an Office Assistant at Headquarters of Albinism Association of Ghana in Accra and would be buried on Friday, June 22, 2018, at Kadjebi.
Gbeti Grace met her untimely death after giving birth to triplets at the Kadjebi Government Hospital a few months ago and buried on Friday, June 22, 2018, at Kadjebi.
