Western Youth MP Survives Witchdoctors

The Police in Kampala have arrested three men who allegedly tried to use 'witchcraft to cleanse' the Western Youth Member of Parliament Juliet Sekitoleko.

Kampala's CID Chief Moses Sakira yesterday identified the suspects as Rashid Kalyesubula, Abdu Juuko and Kulaish Bukenya.

The Police confiscated some items normally used in witchcraft.

"They are indescribable articles in a basket," Sakira said.

They were arrested in two intervals starting with Kalyesubula who Sekitoleko delivered to Central Police station before he led detectives to arrest the rest from their base at Masajja, a city suburb in Makindye division.

Sakira said Sekitoleko had for a long time received several telephone calls from the trio who claimed that 'she had been bewitched and that she needed immediate cleansing if she wanted to survive death.'

Sekitoleko reportedly agreed with the suspects on a date on which she would be taken for cleansing.

They organised to meet her at Shell Capital on Kampala road from where they would take her to the place for the cleansing rituals.
