We’ll use juju to ex­pose killer cops – lead­ers

‘We will dump evil spir­its [on them] un­til we know who killed our peo­ple’

Bu­sia lead­ers say they will re­sort to witchcraft to ex­pose po­lice of­fi­cers they ac­cuse of killing two watch­men and a 14-year-old girl.

On Monday they de­manded that se­nior of­fi­cers in Bu­tula who shield the guilty cops must be trans­ferred or they will use black magic to find out who has blood on their hands.

Led by Deputy Gover­nor Kiz­ito Wan­galwa, they de­manded ac­tion.

“We shall call upon el­ders to do any­thing pos­si­ble to bring the per­pe­tra­tors to book. We will dump evil spir­its [on them] un­til we know who killed our peo­ple,” Wan­galwa said. He ad­dressed the press in his of­fice.

Wan­galwa was re­fer­ring to the mur­ders of two el­derly night guards and a 14-year-old girl last week. The guards were killed on Tues­day night.

On Wed­nes­day po­lice of­fi­cers fol­lowed the killers’ trail us­ing a sniffer dog to the area’s AP camp.

They called off the probe, an­ger­ing res­i­dents and spark­ing protests. Po­lice shot to dis­perse the crowd, in the process killing the girl and in­jur­ing three peo­ple, ad­mit­ted in hos­pi­tal.

“Why was a sniffer dog fol­low­ing leads to the killers stopped from iden­ti­fy­ing per­pe­tra­tors in the AP camp?” Wan­galwa asked. “We de­mand all per­pe­tra­tors be brought to book. At­tempts to cover atroc­i­ties will be re­sisted.”
