Yet another ‘witch’ murdered in South Africa
So a man’s wife dies, and is buried. A few months later, another woman comes to him, lifts her petticoat to reveal her genitals, and then claims to have bewitched his wife, and offers to take him to her.
The woman is obviously insane. She is in need of help. The right thing to do would be to alert the authorities and have her committed.
But in South Africa, she is beaten and stoned to death by an angry mob.
And if you think that belief in witchcraft is a rural issue, and stems from a lack of education, think again. In 2000, Minister of Education Faith Gasa refused to enter her office because she believed a witch had cast an evil spell on it. She refused to come back until the office had been cleared of evil spirits.
