Super Witch Doctor In Soroti Kills Two For Theft Of A Bull

The Territorial Police in Soroti, is on a serious manhunt for a witch doctor  identified as Opolot Simon. Opolot was hired from Kapelebyong district, to perform rituals that could help in the recovery of a bull. This bull had been stolen from Emoru Joseph, a 60-year-old peasant of Agaya village, Agirigiroi parish in Soroti district. During the ritualistic performance, the two biological sons of the complainant were affected, became unconscious and died at the scene.

As a result, the traditional healer, duped the relatives, that he was going to look for a herb, that would help the two victims, Etonu Michael and Okello Levis aged 30 and 40 respectively, to regain consciousness. He however, disappeared and when he was contacted on his phone 0779-677513, he extorted an additional 2m shillings. The family mobilised this and sent to him, however, he went into hiding.

The incident underscores the serious health and safety risks of consulting traditional healers and taking herbs from them. The suspect also had no licence from NACOTHA.

He is now additionally wanted on two counts of causing death, practicing without a certificate and for extortion of money.

“We also would like to warn all traditional medical practitioners and healers, that they will continue to be charged with causing death. This is if their practices lead to the death of a person in future,” Police said.

Several traditional healers describe themselves as master herbalists, who can cure several illnesses. However, their actions sometimes lead to dangerous results.

The complainant who doubles as a father to the two deceased persons, had reported the theft of his bull, at Odudui Police post. This case was under apparently investigation. The victims, could have survived if he had followed the due process of the law.
