Half century jail for child sacrifice witchdoctor

Post  mara thon on Wed 2 Mar - 22:03


A Ugandan High Court has sentenced a 58-year-old witchdoctor to half a century in prison over child sacrifice.

George Kabi of Nyakataama in Kiryandongo District was charged under the law; “Prevention of trafficking in persons”, which was enacted under an Act of Parliament on October 23, 2009.

The law forbids trafficking in persons, human sacrifice, removal of body organs for sale or ritual sacrifice.

Justice Ralph Ochan found that Kabi committed the offence on July 16, 2010, when he cut off the genitalia of a seven-year-old pupil of Masindi Port Primary School–Kiryandongo.

Kabi’s two co-accused, Ibrahim Mwandia and Jackson Baguma, were acquitted after the judge found that there was no evidence to connect them to the case because the victim only identified Kabi before he collapsed.

An identification parade was conducted at Masindi Prison where about 13 suspects were paraded, but the victim managed to identify Kabi, shortly before he collapsed.

Police did not conduct another identification parade when the boy recovered, leaving the judge without any option but to let the two suspects go free.

Alleged accomplices

Before making his ruling, Justice Ochan said child sacrifice was very common in society.
