Ugandan minister condemns cannibalism, witchcraft

Kampala (AND) — State Minister for Ethics and Integrity in Uganda, Dr James Nsaba Buturo has condemned the cannibalism and witchcraft in the country.

He says there is need to restore moral values in Uganda because of strange things happening in the country as a result of witchcraft related issues.

Dr. Buturo’s comments come after a man identified as Sam Pelican Nsubuga was arrested in Mityana district on Saturday by the police with human bones in his house.

The man admitted to having eating many some of the people who died in the area.

This also coincides with the public outcry on the kidnapping and sacrificing of kids to witch doctors by some people looking for material wealth.

Buturo who was talking to Journalists at Parliament on Monday says government must put in a lot of efforts and investigate which people are behind such acts.

The minister also condemns prostitution and urges Members of Parliament not to support anybody who may table a motion or bill before parliament to legalize prostitution.

Last week, some MPs were saying prostitution should be legalized in order to regulate the practice, as a way of halving the spreads HIV/Aids in the country.
