HOPE AND ROBERT SURVIVED WITH LIFE LONG INJURIES. CLIVE UNFORTUNATELY WAS SACRIFICED TO DEATH


What is Child Sacrifice? 

Ritual sacrifice and mutilations of children (Child Sacrifice) is a growing problem in Uganda. It’s a witch-craft driven problem that is manifested through kidnaps, abduction, murder and disappearance of children that are later found mutilated or killed most often involving removing body parts usually facial features, ears, tongues, blood and tissue, genitalia and other internal body organs

These body parts are then mixed with witch-craft related articles in rituals guided by ‘’witch-doctors’’ to be consumed by spirits that are believed will banish evil, provide prosperity and protection of business, bring good luck or any other fortunes. The removal of body parts in most of these mutilations lead to death or the attacks are out-rightly intended for death as a sacrifice, slaughtering the children like an animal for their blood. Some killings that happen near lakes and rivers (or among the fishing communities) involve direct and forceful drowning of children to the gods of the waters as a sacrifice. A heavy stone, or object capable of sinking is tied to a targeted child, they are then sailed into the deep waters and drowned for similar reasons. Many children as well as adults have fallen victims to this practice in Uganda with the biggest number being children as they are considered pure, easy to lure and their blood sacrifice is considered and more powerful that of adults.
