Africa At A Glance: BBC Africa Eye Exposes Brutal Killings of Elderly in Kenya for their Land

7/11/2024
This evening on Africa at A Glance we talk about a new investigation by BBC Africa Eye, for BBC World Service, that has uncovered cases of elderly people being murdered and attacked after being falsely accused of witchcraft along Kenya’s Kilifi coast. Violent attacks on supposed witches occur across paths of Africa and beyond, but the estimated 70 deaths reported here every year are about much more than fear of the supernatural. Meeting victims, relatives and even perpetrators, #BBCAfricaEye investigates the real motives fuelling these brutal incidents and the impunity that often enables them, revealing that many elderly victims are targeted not by strangers, but the very people who should be protecting them - their own families. Joining us for this discussion is Julius Wanyama, who works at human rights organisation called Haki Yetu. Julius is featured in the film and his organisation published an extensive report on witchcraft accusations of the elderly in Kenya, and Nicola ‘Nicky’ Milne, is the Executive Producer and Director of this film. The film is produced by ‘BBC World Service / BBC Africa Eye: and it’s called ‘Cry Witch: Take My Land, Take My Life’. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
