from flutterwave import Flutterwave
flw = Flutterwave("<api_key>", "<merchant_key>", {"debug": True})

payload = {
    "token": "FZeDswE6ju0ONCL3864",    # Token returned from account tokenization request
    "amount": "100",                   # Amount to debit from account
    "narration": "payment for coffee", # Description for this payment
    "country": "NG"                    # country of debit source
}

r = flw.account.charge(payload)
print "{}".format(r.text)

# Response
# {
#   {
#       "transactionreference":"FLW00292801",
#       "responseMessage":"Approved or Completed Successfully",
#       "responseCode":"00"
#   },
