Mozambican Boy Castrated for Witchcraft
Capital FM ^ | 10/15/2010

Two men were sentenced to 20 years in prison for cutting off a nine-year-old boy's testicles, penis and eyes to sell to a Malawian witchdoctor, Mozambican state radio reported Thursday.

One of the men was the boy's uncle, who lured him with crackers to go rat-hunting in woods near the Malawi border, while the accomplice hid nearby, the court sentence read.

One attacker covered the youth's mouth while the other hit him on the chest with a rock. They then cut off his organs and left him for dead, while one took the body parts in a bag to a middleman in Malawi, where they hoped to sell the flesh for about 560 dollars (400 euros).

The boy was discovered alive the next day and taken to hospital in Malawi.

"The crime they committed was horrible. The court condemns them to 20 years' imprisonment," judge Jorge Langa said, according to the radio report.

Many Mozambicans believe in witches who use human parts in remedies to cure diseases.

The title made me think the boy was the witch.

Sounds more like a Mozambiqan mugging. The guy didn't have a wallet or a watch, but they still found something with some value on the street.

Prayers for the little one. 20 years isn’t enough.

There are no words adequate to describe what I think of these sub-human waste.

Coming to think of it, isn’t this what Jesse Jackson threatened to do to Baraq Hussein Obama Sr’s son ?

If the wife of some poor schlub had done this in the United States, there would be countless jokes and replies making light of it.

They also believe that sex with an infant cures AIDS.
Ignorant savages.

These animals do not qualify as human. Not by a long shot.

Fortunately, there is little chance they’ll survive 20 years in a Mozambique prison. And their lives will be horrific until they die.

Oooh! Big punishment there for these pigs. Twenty years? How many years of horror will their victim have?

This is the Africa that some many blacks in America pine for while hating whitey for bringing their ancestors here.

That graphic looks just perfect for religion in America today: All the others come before Christianity; and Christianity is tainted by the “gay purple”.

Not quite sure how this made the news. People getting their limbs and genitals hacked off and eyes gouged out and sold to make magic potions happens countless times each day across Africa.

If you can visualize the most brutal, horrific inhumanity one could ever possibly commit against another human being, chances are good it is happening right now as I post this to someone, somewhere in Africa.

A Russian woman, who intended on selling her grandson for his body’s organs, was prevented from doing so by police in southwestern Russia. (Posted on Free Republic a few years ago.)

It has everything to do with zero principles and outright barbarism.
