Hexenjagd in Gambia

Beitragvon Birgitt » 18.03.2009 22:40

Die Behörden in Gambia haben nach Angaben von Amnesty International eine Hexenjagd gestartet und etwa 1.000 Dorfbewohner verschleppt. Die Opfer seien von sogenannten «Hexen-Ärzten» gezwungen worden, Halluzinogene zu trinken, teilte die Menschenrechtsorganisation am Mittwoch mit. Bei vielen von ihnen habe dies massive Nierenprobleme ausgelöst, mindestens zwei Menschen seien gestorben. Amnesty rief die Regierung von Präsident Yahya Jammeh auf, die Kampagne sofort zu stoppen ...

Kindesmisshandlung - Die "Hexenkinder" von Nigeria

Beitragvon Birgitt » 25.10.2009 16:23

Immer mehr Kinder in Afrika werden von Geistlichen der Zauberei beschuldigt - und gequält oder umgebracht. Unicef zufolge sind Zehntausende betroffen. 13 Kirchen sind aktenkundig, einige davon sind abtrünnige Splittergruppen internationaler Glaubensgemeinschaften. Eket - Ausgemergelt lag Nwanaoko auf einem Krankenhausbett, die blinden Augen abgewandt. Ein Pastor hatte den Neunjährigen der Hexerei bezichtigt, sein Vater hatte ihm zwecks Exorzismus Säure einflößen wollen und ihm damit Gesicht und Augen verätzt. Völlig geschwächt konnte der Junge nur noch flüsternd den Namen der Kirche nennen, die ihn als Hexer brandmarkte. Einen Monat später war er tot ...

Hexenjagd im Kongo ...

12 year-old, Henri, which is not his real name, points at a large fresh looking scar on his midriff. "People accused me of sorcery and my mother believed them," he says. "Look, here on my stomach. She tried to kill me with a knife. It really hurt and I cannot understand why my mother did it." Henri, who is now being given help by a children's charity, had been playing outside his home in Goma, eastern Congo, when the accusations began. His eyes begin to water as he remembers pleading with his mother, telling her that the claims were completely untrue. Not that this made any difference ...

Bevor ich mir hier ein Urteil bilden kann...

Sind solche "Hexenverfolgungen" in dieser Gegend erst mit dem Chirstentum, gar mit den 'Evangelikalen" aufgekommen oder bestand dieser Brauch - wenn denn so sagen darf- schon in den urspruenglichen, lokalen, Religionen?

Ich meine mich zu erinnern, dass zB. Epileptiker bei vielen Voelkern als etwas Besonderes angesehen wurden - zum Teil zu Shamanen gemach wurden. Bin aber zum Thema wirklich nicht fit.

Handelt es sich also um einen "ansaessigen Brauch" oder wurde er mit dem Christentum eingefuehrt?

Hexenjagd in Ghana ...

There has been widespread shock in Ghana over the death of a 72-year-old woman accused of being a witch. The woman, who lived in the port city of Tema, near Accra, was allegedly set on fire by a group of five adults, one of whom is believed to be a pastor. The suspects say her death was an accident, and deny committing any crime

Hexen in Ghana

Beitragvon Birgitt » 13.10.2011 19:14

IRIN hat geschrieben:GHANA: Reintegrating the nation’s “witches”
13.10.2011 - IRIN

Ghana’s government is looking at ways to support people accused of witchcraft - mainly women and children banished by their communities to “witches’ camps” in the north - and to reintegrate them in their home villages.

Currently around 1,000 women and 700 children are living in six camps in northern Ghana, where they have found refuge from threats and violence from people in their home communities after being labelled witches and blamed for causing misfortune to others. In most cases the residents were taken to the camps by family members. A small number of men are also banished to the camps as “wizards”, according to Hajia Hawawu Boya Gariba, Ghana’s deputy minister for women and children’s affairs.

Belief in witchcraft is widespread in Africa - and other parts of the world - but in sub-Saharan Africa accusations against children are a recent and growing phenomena, according to a UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) report released last year.

The camps are located in remote areas and the residents usually live in basic conditions in mud huts without electricity, with limited access to food, water or medicine. Local reports detail women going hungry, residents having to walk kilometres to collect water, and children being unable to attend school. The camps are run by managers - usually the people who founded them - who rely on funding from NGOs and private donations to operate the facilities. Sometimes camp managers also take payment such as food from residents.

While the issue of “witches’ camps” is nothing new - they have been around for decades - recent media reports have spurred the government to action. “As a government we are embarrassed that we have these camps in our country - especially as our human rights record will be scrutinized as far as this is concerned,” Gariba said.

Stigma

A meeting of government officials, accused women from the camps, camp managers, NGOs and doctors in Accra on 8 September considered what action should be taken to improve the situation for camp residents. Gariba said the government was working with the National Disaster Management Organization (NADMO) to improve conditions in the camps by providing food and other support to the inmates, then in the long-term the government would look at repatriating the residents to their home villages and shutting down the camps.

This will include educating communities back home so they understand the banished women are not actually witches, said Gariba, who has also suggested drafting legislation to make it illegal to accuse people of witchcraft.

Akwasi Osei, the chief psychiatrist in Ghana’s national health service, who helped initiate the meeting, emphasized the need for community education. “Right now if you [repatriate accused witches] you can be sure they will be lynched when they go back home,” he said. “You have to prepare [their] society and help them understand that it’s not these women who were the causes of [misfortune].”

A second meeting later this month will firm up a plan of action to eventually disband the camps, Gariba said.

Reluctant to leave

Not everyone thinks trying to close the camps is a good idea. Bilabim Jakper, 60, has lived in the Nabuli “witches’ camp”, Gushegu District, northern Ghana, for the past nine years and says she wants to stay put.

Her husband died 15 years ago, and after that her former husband’s younger brother accused her of witchcraft. “He told family members I attempted to kill him spiritually in the night… Later the whole village heard about the incident and concluded I was a witch. They beat me up and threatened to kill me.”

She escaped and eventually found her way to Nabuli. She said she does not believe her original community would accept her back. “They say I am a bad omen to my family. Here is my home… The people here are my friends and relatives now.”

Alhassan Sayibu, who has managed the Nyani “witches’ camp” in northern Ghana for 10 years since taking over from his father, said the risk of violence against so-called witches and wizards in their original communities was too high and the camps should not be closed.

“If something bad happens they [could] be accused [again]. Three months ago [people in one community] broke someone’s hand after she was sent back there and she was brought back here again. Even men are beaten and returned here,” Syibu said.

Gariba suggested if some inmates were still unable to return after their original communities were educated, the camps could be redeveloped into care centres.

Who are the accused?

Chief psychiatrist Osei said women accused of witchcraft are generally mentally ill - suffering depression, dementia or schizophrenia. Women were also usually easy targets when people were looking for a scapegoat, he said. “Very often [accused witches are] vulnerable women who are probably widowed or childless… or are poor and illiterate,” he said.

Emmanuel Dobson, executive director of Christian Outreach Fellowship, an NGO providing food, medicine and accommodation to people in the witches’ camps, agreed that mainly older, uneducated women were targeted. He also pointed to the patriarchal culture in northern Ghana as a factor in their vulnerability. “When a man marries a woman she becomes his property. The woman’s family then has less authority over the life of the woman, and the woman is left helpless [if] her husband is not able to advocate for her.”

Hexenjagd in Mosambik ...

Two elderly people have been lynched in Mozambique after being accused of witchcraft, state radio quotes a police spokesman as saying. The killings have led to the arrest of six people, Radio Mozambique reports. A non-governmental organisation says at least 20 Mozambicans have been killed this year for alleged witchcraft. Such killings affect several African countries, where superstitious beliefs are rife because of poverty and illiteracy, correspondents say

Hexenjagd in Nigeria ...

A man who carried out "juju" witchcraft on teenage girls he trafficked from Nigeria to Europe for prostitution has been jailed for 20 years [...] The court had heard girls were trafficked into the UK and taken to Osolase's home in Gravesend before being sent to work as prostitutes in mainland Europe. One of the girls described the Juju ceremony performed on her in Nigeria. During the ritual, samples of blood were extracted from the girl and her head hair and pubic hair were also cut. She was then told to swear an oath of silence.
