The idea of child sacrifice seems so foreign to most Americans and most people across the western world. But in Uganda there are hundreds of children every year who are kidnapped and murdered because of the ritualistic killing practice. One that is also now considered to be a thriving business because of the big money that can be made off of it.
Businessmen in the eastern African country routinely have children taken from their homes, only to be murdered by witch doctors and hired hit men so there bodies can be offered up as a gift to supernatural beings.
It’s unbelievably shocking and horrific, especially for the families that live in Uganda that are becoming more aware of this insane practice.
The suspects first isolate the child and then typically slit the child’s neck with a knife. But according to local pastor Peter Sewakiryanga, the gruesome process has several steps. After killing the child, their blood is then taken out as well as the tissue. After that, the child’s genitals are cut or any other body part that is believed that the spirit would want is taken out for offering.
To catch the assailants in the act, undercover detectives, armed police and pastor Sewakiryanga have gone out on hunts to locate them. But most nights they have no luck. And that is considered to be very unfortunate because “The problem is increasing and many children are killed.”
And now “there are very few actually that survive, most of them die.”
Rachel Kaseggu is a mother who experienced the loss of her son first hand. She said to CBN that “I had high hopes and dreams for Clive,” her three-year-old son that was taken from her family’s backyard back in 2015.
Citing that “it was around 10 in the morning when we noticed he was nowhere to be found.” And when it happened two years ago, she explained that she was shocked because at the time,”I (had) never even heard of child sacrifice, I didn’t even know what that phrase meant.”
But the conclusion of her son’s death was only drawn after his body was located by local Ugandan detective named Emmanuel Mafundo who found the child’s decapitated body in a public toilet.
After some investigation, Mafundo discovered the key suspect in the case was most likely the family’s neighbor. A man that was not identified by the detective but said to be a wealthy business man who wanted “good luck” for his new hotel project.
After more digging, Mafundo said the businessman hired two men to kidnap and mutilate the child.
Even though Clive’s story is difficult to hear, he’s just one of many children that have been taken from their family due to this horrific crime.
Some children have survived the ordeal, but their stories are equally difficult to hear.
Take Kanani and his 7-year-old sister. He and his sister were attacked in the Uganda bush several years ago. At the time, they were unable to escape the killers. He explained that his sister was killed but he was able to survive.
Even though he’s grateful for his life, he still has a lasting reminder, a ten-inch scar on the back of his neck, showing where the witch doctor tried to drain his blood so it could be sacrificed.
A horrific tale that shows the need for more to be done to stop child sacrifice.
