Child Sacrifices in Uganda

Allan Ssembatya was seven when a cruel witch doctor kidnapped him and sliced his head open with a machete before castrating him

According to a Daily Mail report, hundreds of Ugandan children are kidnapped, decapitated and/or mutilated by witch doctors every year who have deceived the country’s elite demographic that sacrificing childrens’ body parts can make them richer.

The heinous trend is expected to increase as the 2016 Ugandan elections approach.

Wealthy businessmen are said to pay these witch doctors thousands of pounds for these rituals not just because they believe it will make them richer, but also because they think it can cure impotence and boost their fertility.

The report further states:

These witch doctors sever limbs and remove their genitals after snatching them on the way home from school or as they go to fetch water for their family. Their dismembered remains are later discovered in forests and building sites. 

Cruel witch doctors do not use their severed body parts to craft a magic potion, but claim to ‘offer them’ to the spirits who commanded them to carry out the brutal attacks.

In February, Uganda’s government created a National Action Plan to stop the murders and approved a bill to regulate healers – some of whom were practising as real doctors.

But the businessmen who pay thousands of pounds for the sick rituals are rarely prosecuted because witch doctors refuse to give up their clients.

The boys they castrate suffer the crippling after-effects of blood clots, a dangerous decrease of bone density and spinal fractures their entire lives.

It is feared that child sacrifice will be difficult to stamp out because ‘as long as people have such a belief, that practice will continue’.

    chaiii. this made me feel sick in my tummy. poor children maimed and destroyed for life. Boko Haram should have resided in Uganda, so they always bomb these useless ritual killers, then we can say they have a cause.

    And of course these powerful men will not enforce the law and give the death sentence to these witch doctors. “For the love of money is the root of all evil”. How can the money and wealth prosper anybody when it is achieved in this manner? It will only last for a twinkling of the eye until great destruction befall the recipient.
