Pub’s Pen Webdesk :. Despite strict laws and the death penalty, massacres continue in the African country of Uganda. The Ugandan government is deeply concerned about this strange practice of sacrificing people in remote and rural areas. Government officials say that 132 people have lost their lives in the country in the last three years.
But the rising rate is worrying. In 2019, there were 22 human sacrifices in the country, in 2020 the number was 45, and in 2021 it increased to 85, police said. According to sources, in most cases, children are sacrificed in these superstitions. Because children are considered the most ‘holy’ and ‘sacred’.
According to the officials, the human sacrifice is performed under the guidance of the witches belonging to the tribal communities of the village. Police spokesman Fred Enanga told the media that a father was arrested a few days ago for allegedly killing his two sons. “We have arrested a suspect, Muslim Mbiwire, for allegedly sacrificing his two sons,” he said.
“The preliminary investigation revealed that a rich man had given a large amount of money to MBUI. In return he asked to sacrifice his two children. In March, police found the decapitated body of a 5-year-old boy in Bugiri district. It is known that a merchant sacrificed a child in the hope that he would get luck.
