Tycoon Murder: Police Ban Witchcraft In Mbarara
The south western regional police commander Martin Abilu has ordered a ban on all traditional healing practices in Mbarara district.
This stems from the fact that investigations show that witchdoctors masterminded the death of a Denis Murangira, a young business man in Mbarara municipality two weeks ago.
Abilu said police would soon launch an operation with the view of arresting those who will not adhere to this ban.
The police chief said witchdoctors on several occasions have raped, robbed and extorted money from their clients.
Murangira was murdered two weeks ago at Kakoma Village in Kakiika division in Mbarara municipality.
His battered body was dumped in his car, where it was discovered by shocked residents of Kakoma.
At the time of his death, he was reportedly engaged in a bid for a tender to manage the Mbarara Taxi Park.
Residents and police were therefore quick to arrest the rivals with whom he was contesting for the tender, suspecting that they had bumped him off so as to up their chances of securing the contract.
A number of suspects have been arrested to help police in the investigation which has revealed that there was a connection of foul play with witchdoctors.
Mbarara is one of the districts in western Uganda that hosts a number of witchdoctors. Some come from Tanzania and Democratic Republic of Congo.
