Witch sacrifices wife

Iganga, Uganda - A witch in Kakonge village, Zize Sub- county, Iganga district, sacrificed his wife, Ms Kaumbo Bakala, on November 28 at 11pm.

The Assistant Deputy Police Spokesman, Mr Patrick Onyango, told Daily Monitor that the witch doctor only identified as Bakala cut Kaumbo’s private parts after administering herbs.

He reportedly did this to acquire wealth. “He called his second wife into the shrine and applied herbs which made her unconscious,” Onyango said. Police intervened after a tip off from neighbours .

The first wife, Mutesi, made an alarm when she entered the shrine and realised that Kasumbo was dead. The alarm attracted an angry crowd which tried to lynch Bakala before he could flee.

Bakala disappeared with his wife’s private parts and fingers. The dismembered body was taken to Iganga Hospital for post-mortem as investigations continue.

The Assistant Deputy Police Spokesman appealed to the public to report any information that could lead to the arrest of Bakala.
