I can’t believe this sort of thing still goes on in this day and age.
The best description I can find of the video below says: five people suspected of witchcraft were brutally murdered — burned alive — in Nyamataro, a village in Kisii, Kenya.
The victims are the elderly (over 80) and four of the five are women.
You can see victims trying to get out of the ditch only to be pushed back in. Some victims are just kicked around. Others are beaten with a stick.
It’s the worst of human nature. To paraphrase Voltaire, when people believe absurdities, they can commit atrocities. This is a perfect example.
It’s senseless murder. Rational people know these victims are not witches capable of inflicting curses or anything of the sort.
