Police Detain Four Suspects of Killing Elderly Man Because of Witchcraft

The authorities announced on Tuesday the arrest of four men, suspected of having murdered an 86-year-old man accused of witchcraft, in the province of Moxico.


The homicide took place on the 20th, in the town of Sacassanje, village of Kajivulula, about 13 kilometers from the city of Luena, when the suspects assaulted the man with sticks, allegedly due to his involvement in the death of a 32-year-old girl, resident in the same village.

After consummating the crime, the presumed perpetrators fled, and steps were taken to locate and detain the four suspects, who had already been referred to the Public Prosecutor's Office, for legal procedures.
