Another “too crazy to be real anywhere but Africa” story.
Police in Congo have arrested 13 suspected sorcerers accused of using black magic to steal or shrink men’s penises after a wave of panic and attempted lynchings triggered by the alleged witchcraft.
Reports of so-called penis snatching are not uncommon in West Africa, where belief in traditional religions and witchcraft remains widespread, and where ritual killings to obtain blood or body parts still occur.
Rumors of penis theft began circulating last week in Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo’s sprawling capital of some 8 million inhabitants. They quickly dominated radio call-in shows, with listeners advised to beware of fellow passengers in communal taxis wearing gold rings.
Purported victims, 14 of whom were also detained by police, claimed that sorcerers simply touched them to make their genitals shrink or disappear, in what some residents said was an attempt to extort cash with the promise of a cure.
“You just have to be accused of that, and people come after you. We’ve had a number of attempted lynchings. … You see them covered in marks after being beaten,” Kinshasa’s police chief, Jean-Dieudonne Oleko, told Reuters on Tuesday.
So this gets pretty obvious pretty fast. This is a whole “muh dik” freakout.
Police arrested the accused sorcerers and their victims in an effort to avoid the sort of bloodshed seen in Ghana a decade ago, when 12 suspected penis snatchers were beaten to death by angry mobs. The 27 men have since been released.
“I’m tempted to say it’s one huge joke,” Oleko said.
“But when you try to tell the victims that their penises are still there, they tell you that it’s become tiny or that they’ve become impotent. To that I tell them, ‘How do you know if you haven’t gone home and tried it’,” he said.
Some Kinshasa residents accuse a separatist sect from nearby Bas-Congo province of being behind the witchcraft in revenge for a recent government crackdown on its members.
“It’s real. Just yesterday here, there was a man who was a victim. We saw. What was left was tiny,” said 29-year-old Alain Kalala, who sells phone credits near a Kinshasa police station.
So they were playing the whole “let’s compare dicks” game. When one of them got mocked for having a small dong, they acted surprised and decided to play it off by blaming it on a “witch” or black magic.
That’s what this is.
And then some random niggers ended up being lynched. Because of this.
Yeah, these people will make fantastic neighbors, doncha think, dump SWPL shitlib couple?
Of yes, I find African art and customs so fascinating and authentic!
Mmhmm. You gon’ get enriched alright.
You know, these shitlibs might know some of this stuff if they actually knew anything about Africa at all. But, again, it’s easier to just virtue-signal than it is to do a little bit of actual research.
And I don’t really even care about people eating each other and playing with their dicks in Africa. Fuck ’em. Let ’em do what they do.
Why, oh why, do we just have to bring them over here though?
