Ugandan bishop blasts witchcraft's continued influence

October 08, 2010

A Ugandan prelate is criticizing the continued belief in witchcraft and fetishes in his area of the nation. Many residents, said Bishop Paul Ssemogerere of Kasana-Luweero, attribute disease to witchcraft.

“Even when a person gets malaria, the people will point out that the mosquitoes which infected him were sent by someone,” he said. “As Christians, you should know that there is only one God. The witchdoctors are only confusing you to make money. And when you give it to them, they become rich at your expense.”
