Residents of Kachoch village, Kachoch parish in Malera Sub County of Bukedea district have spent a day full of shock after witnessing a man eating grass for a allegedly stealing a bull.
Julius Akol, aged 48, was got by his fellow residents today’s morning eating grass after the owner of the bull reportedly took a ritualist to perform sacraments in his home.
David Okwi, the owner of the bull told Aica that his home has on several occasions been attacked by thieves.
“I got tired of reporting to police because they failed to assist me and that is why I decided to bring a witch doctor to help me this time round,” said Okwi.
Okwi added that, “it is now the fourth time when my home has been robbed by unidentified thieves but police still failed to help me.”
Sam Osekeny, the head of Defense Committee in the village said the Office of the LC1 has been receiving reports from Okwi concerning robberies.
Osekeny told Aica that when the witch doctor was brought to Okwi’s home, neighbors and other residents in the community were asked whether any of them knew the whereabouts of Okwi’s bull but none compiled.
“This is not the first time Okwi complained to the authorities. We had hopes that the witchdoctor would expose this person because we are tired of theft in the community”, Osekeny said.
Musa Opolot, one of the witness said the witchdoctor mixed herbs with water and leaves of green piece and later gave all people to drink.
“He told us that whoever stole Okwi’s bull will start eating grass in less than twenty four hours and within shorter time, Julius Akol started to eat grass like a bull,” Opolot said.
