Mitooma, Uganda – February 11, 2024

In a shocking incident that has sent shockwaves through Mitooma District, two witchdoctors have been apprehended by police for allegedly raping a Kampala International University (KIU) student and swindling her of UGX 2.9 million.

The victim, whose identity has been withheld, is a Social Work and Social Administration (SWASA) student at KIU’s Western Campus. She had sought the assistance of the witchdoctors, identified as Nazario Bazarwa, 72, and David Bamwetaki, 57, both residents of Nyantoma Parish in Kashenshero Sub-County, Mitooma District.

According to Martial Tumusiime, the Greater Bushenyi Regional Police Spokesman, the student visited the witchdoctors’ shrine in a desperate attempt to halt her boyfriend from seeing another woman. However, instead of receiving assistance, she fell victim to a horrifying assault.

Tumusiime revealed that the witchdoctors instructed the student to spend the night at their shrine, promising to administer medicine the following morning. Tragically, it is alleged that during the night, Bazarwa and Bamwetaki took advantage of the vulnerable student and subjected her to sexual assault.

The ordeal didn’t end there, as the suspects allegedly stole UGX 2.9 million from the student before she managed to escape and report the incident to the authorities.

Both Bazarwa and Bamwetaki have been charged with rape and obtaining money by false pretense. The case file has been forwarded to the state attorney’s office for further legal action.

This disturbing incident highlights the dangerous consequences of superstitions and the exploitation of vulnerable individuals by individuals purporting to possess supernatural powers. It underscores the need for increased awareness and regulation to protect citizens from such exploitation.

Instances of seeking help from witchdoctors, particularly in rural areas, remain prevalent despite efforts to discourage such practices. However, cases like this serve as a stark reminder of the risks associated with placing trust in unscrupulous individuals who exploit superstitions for personal gain.

As the investigation unfolds, authorities are urging the public to remain vigilant and report any suspicious activities or individuals who may pose a threat to community safety.
