ICC Note

Witch doctors in Uganda have increase child and human sacrifices recently due to the extreme drought that is affecting much of East Africa. In 2015, there were 7 children and 6 adults killed in rituals. 2016 had 7 children and 2 adults killed. So far in 2017 that number may be much higher. There have been 21 cases of women being killed in Katabi. The Police have also arrested 44 people in connection with ritualistic killings. Pastors and church leaders are working hard with police across the country to end the killings of so many innocent victims. 


2017-09-27 Uganda (USA Today) Jackline Mukisa sobbed as she described how her 8-year-old son was found in a nearby swamp in February without teeth, lips, ears and genitals.

“My innocent son died a painful death,” said Mukisa, 28. “How could somebody intend to murder my son?”

A motorcyclist offered John Lubega a lift as he walked back from school, according to fellow students who saw him last. His remains suggest he was slowly killed as part of a human sacrifice ritual performed by witch doctors, apparently to appease the spirits, said Mukisa, who filed a police report.

No arrest has been made so far.

In this landlocked country whose diverse landscape includes the snow-capped Ruwenzori Mountains and immense Lake Victoria, many believe sacrificial rituals can bring quick wealth and health.

Among those rituals, human sacrifice, especially of children, occurs frequently despite the government’s efforts to stop it.

Seven children and two adults were sacrificed last year, said Moses Binoga, a police officer who heads Uganda’s Anti-Human Sacrifice and Trafficking Task Force. Seven children and six adults were sacrificed in 2015.

But experts said the number could be much higher.
