Commissioner for Gender and Equality Namasont Mazibuka was born with albinism.

According to the United Nations, albinism is a rare, non-communicable, genetically inherited difference that is present at birth.

In almost all types of albinism, both parents must carry the gene for its transmission, even if they themselves do not have albinism.

The disease occurs in both sexes regardless of ethnicity and in all countries.

Mazibuka shares his travels, personal achievements, aspirations and challenges SABC Digital news producer Lebo Tchangel this time in a two-week article, Bloom.

She says: “People have changed their attitude towards us, people with albinism, I can’t say 50% or 60%. The plight of albinism is well known. People no longer speak in breath. Young people have confidence. “
