Witchcraft violence and the law in South Africa

Hund, J (ed)

Beskikbaarheid: In stock


Quick Overview

“Whole villages of alleged witches have been set up under the protection of the police and hardly a day goes by without a witchcraft killing being reported by the media. The South African Witchcraft Suppression Act was meant to suppress beliefs in witchcraft but, on the contrary, the Act has lead to an increase in witchcraft violence. Witchcraft accusations and violence are generating new forms of popular ‘justice’ which threaten to destabilise the state’s administration of justice. What is to be done?” – Prof John Hund.
“This volume raises the discussion of the problem to a new level by comprehensively exploring all aspects of it in an interdisciplinary context. [It] will turn up the heat on government to take action.” – Dr Mathole Motshekga, MP, Gauteng Province.
“As a sangoma I have participated in many expulsions of evil spirits from people; and I tell you I still do not like it. … And so it is, sir, that I pass on my knowledge to you, who ask questions, who have an interest in these matters, in the hope that you will pass them on to others who need knowledge of these sacred things.” – Credo Mutwa.
