Uganda Witch Doctor Charged With Lying About Child Sacrifices

February 25, 2010

Uganda (ChattahBox) – A former witch doctor has been charged with lying during a BBC news report about conducting human sacrifices on seventy people, most children.

Polino Angela claimed in a BBC Newsnight episode that he had killed dozens of children for spells and potions created for paying customers.

He has since become a campaigner to end human sacrifice in his home country, a problem that local authorities have been cracking down on in recent years.

But authorities say he was lying, a claim that Angela denies. He has been arrested for the charges.

BBC correspondent Tim Whewell is also wanted on charges of providing false information.

Human sacrifice, especially involving children, is still an occasional practice in some African tribes.

In 2005, a report from the UK authorities was leaked, which described the problem of child trafficking in Britain for the sake of human sacrifices.
