Witch doctor exhumes body of one year old in Kaputa District
Kaputa July 21, 2014— A Congolese witch doctor working from Nsumbu area in Nsama district has exhumed the body of a one year five months old child after suspecting that he was bewitched.
The infant was initially buried last month after he died.
But witch doctor who was working from Nsumbu allegedly exhumed the child without the consent of the parents of the deceased child.
The witchdoctor who was working with unknown people allegedly took the body of the exhumed child to the house of James Chansa 36 of Chibengu Village in Nsumbu whom he suspected to have bewitched the child.
The incident happened over the weekend and the child was later reburied after police from Nsumbu intervened in the matter.
The witch doctor has since escaped to the Congo DR but police have apprehended his accomplice to help with investigations.
Efforts to get a comment from Luapula Police Commissioner failed as his phone was off.
