The devil is busy: An 8-year-old boy mutilated and murdered by a witch doctor

Empowering Everyday Women Ministries // Global News

Share The practice of human sacrifice is on the rise in Uganda, as measured by ritual killings where body parts, often facial features or genitals, are cut off for use in ceremonies.

Most recently, an 8-year-old was found in a nearby swamp without teeth, lips, ears and genitals. His mutilated body was discovered in February.

According to a USA Today report, Jackline Mukisa, the dead boy’s 28-year-old mother, sobbed  and said, “My innocent son died a painful death. How could somebody intend to murder my son?”

The victim was reportedly lured by motorcyclist John Lubega who offered him a ride as he walked home from school. This is the last time the child was seen.

No arrest has been made so far.

Mukisa told reporters ritual human sacrifice is performed by witch doctors to appease the spirits. Their focus on appeasement is in the misguided hope that the angry spirits will bring rain and end the drought that has led to widespread food shortage, with some areas being on the brink of famine.

“There is no food due to the ongoing drought, and some believe that this has been brought by ancestral spirits,” Joel Mugoya, a traditional, told the Religion News Service, says USA Today. “So there is a high desire for people to conduct sacrifices so that they come out of this problem.”

Moses Binoga, a police officer who heads up Uganda’s Anti-Human Sacrifice and Trafficking Task Force says seven children and two adults were sacrificed last year. In 2015, seven children and six adults were dismembered and offered up.

Currently, over 11 million people are facing food insecurity and more than 1.6 million are facing even worse conditions, and are on the brink of famine.

Human sacrifices have been recorded throughout history and occur still in many countries, including India, Indonesia, South Africa, Gabon and Tanzania.

"I call it a problem of psychological disorientation," said Binoga. "People get disoriented. People stop having respect in humanity and believe more in the worth of money and so-called good fortune, and they lose that natural social respect for people."
