Been going on for decades there. Picks up again every couple years, last major round before the current one was in 2008 when around 35 Albinos were killed in Tanzania (which were half the victims of the entire 14 years between 2000 and 2013 in the country).
Tanzania, the main market for albino body parts, outlawed witchdoctors in 2014 and arrested several hundred in hopes to curb the problem. The current resurgence followed that. The problem is at a different level though, see: http://www.aljazeera.com/indepth/fea...073105627.html
