Witch Doctors In Africa-Send Them To Wall Street!

It is witchcraft time in Africa as mobs roam the villages of east Africa in search of albinos or people whose body parts can be used in ceremonies to obtain power and wealth. Of course, in America, our witch doctors roam the corridors of banks and financial institutions seeking money rather than body parts, but, in the end, the result is still the same– people are left empty inside. But, when it comes to witching, Gambia president Yahya Jammeh is in a class of his own. A new report by Amnesty International says his goons have kidnapped at least a thousand people who are taken to detention centers where his own witch doctors can operate to their heart’s desire.

Jammeh reportedly imported witch doctors from Guinea to help him ferret out enemies who he believes killed his aunt and cause problems in his country. Of course, a few years ago, the president claimed to have whipped up a formula in his kitchen that cured AIDS. Perhaps, President Obama might latch onto this African wizard and have him concoct a formula to solve our economic crisis. After all, it should be a lot simpler than AIDS.

As for body parts, I hear there is a guy in Texas who might qualify for that assignment.

The Slaughter Of Albinos In East Africa Grows Worse

Hate has a home in the minds of many east Africans who believe those born in Africa who have white skins possess special powers and if one can obtain part of their bodies, then wealth and health will be guaranteed. The war against albinos is accelerating in areas like Tanzania where over 35 have been murdered this year at the urgings of witch doctors who want to cut off parts of their bodies to use in their so-called magic potions. In some areas of
Africa, albino children go to school protected by bodyguards. The Tanzanian Albino Society has helped hundreds of albinos to find safety on the island of Ukerewe which lies in Lake Victoria. In the last week, two more albinos were murdered including an eleven year old girl who was hacked to pieces with machetes and her body parts taken away.

The estimate is there are about 200,000 albinos in the world and they are found in every society. For some reason, the largest number come from East Africa. Few albino children are aware their skins lack protection against the sun and many die early in life. Although the Tanzanian government has spoken out against witch doctors, none has yet been convicted.

We humans have a propensity for uncovering new fellow humans to hate. Such is the human condition.
