William Kachigamba, 29, died at Kamuzu Central Hospital (KCH) in Lilongwe after a battle with cancer. Patricia, his sister, verified the news in an interview with local media. The Association of People with Albinism also reported the musician’s death (APAM).
“We regret to inform you that Mr. William Kachigamba passed away as a result of skin cancer. May his soul be at peace, the association wished in a statement released this afternoon. Kachigamba was able to travel to Zambia for cancer treatment in 2020 thanks to fundraising organized by Kachigamba’s fellow artist Patience Namadingo.
Patricia reported that the treatment did not affect the young musician’s condition. According to APAM, skin cancer continues to be a major problem for people with albinism in Malawi as they must overcome several obstacles to receive prompt treatment.
Over 50 people with albinism have passed already since 2020, according to the organization, as a result of expensive procedures and a lack of a comprehensive skin cancer prevention program.
