A 20-year-old woman was on Monday found dead at a witchdoctor’s home in Nakaseke district where she had gone for ‘treatment’.

Gertrude Namata’s throat was slit and the body left near the witchdoctor’s house in Kiwoko, where she had been taken three days earlier.

The Police arrested the witchdoctor, Ahmed Nsereko, 45. However, he claims the victim killed herself in a moment of insanity.

The victim’s mother, Cecilia Nakiwu, said she took her daughter to the witchdoctor after she suffered a mild mental illness. She parted with sh160,000 to ‘cleanse’ her after the witchdoctor claimed that Namata was being bewitched.

Nakiwu narrated that on the third day of the treatment, the witchdoctor ordered her and other relatives to leave on the orders of the spirits. After the witchdoctor was arrested, a mob unsuccessfully tried to lynch him.
