A new UNICEF report says accusations of child witchcraft are on the rise in Africa — leaving kids vulnerable to abuse, abandonment, and horrific "exorcisms"
(Submitter's note: Another report on the increasing crisis about child "throwaways" being accused of witchcraft or "ndoki"--a crisis definitively linked to the activities of NAR and neopente-dominionist "missionary" groups in sub-Saharan Africa.
(NGOs focusing on the needs of these children estimate that thousands (UNICEF estimates over 20,000 children in Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of the COngo alone)of children end up dead or as internally displaced persons--effectively orphaned--as a result.
(This is, unfortunately, also likely to lead to further condemnation of the UN by dominionists worldwide; in fact, it is primarily dominionist lobbying that has kept the US as the sole functioning UN-recognised state that has failed to ratify the Convention on the Rights of the Child; even the provisional government of Somalia (the other non-ratifying nation) has agreed in principle to ratify it once Somalia has a unified government. --dogemperor)
