Kampala, Uganda | THE INDEPENDENT | Residents of Wankole in Kamuli district have ejected Damian Akuze, a witch doctor who allegedly sued the speaker of parliament Rebecca Kadaga for nonpayment of sorcery services.

Akuze filed the case through his lawyers; Mangeni and Company Advocates at the Jinja High Court, demanding for a payment of 200 million Shillings for the service that allegedly propelled Kadaga through leadership.

Kadaga has served several times as a Member of Parliament, as deputy speaker and as the speaker of Parliament.  But Akuze says that Kadaga was riding on his charms to keep herself in senior positions since 1990. However, he says that Kadaga failed to pay for the service over the years and that the money has since accumulated to more than 200 million Shillings.

“She made a down paid of 1 million Shillings but I still owe her a big sum of money following the great job I did for her. I still do some work for her annually but am surprised there are people including police officers who are hunting me down,” Akuze told URN. He says he had demanded the money for over 29-years.

This morning, angry residents armed with placards in defence of Kadaga stormed Akuze’s home and ejected him.

“Let our mother be,” read one of the placards. “We shall deal with you if you don’t withdraw the court case”, read another. They accused him of succumbing to the work of political protagonists to taint Kadaga’s image.

The residents sounded drums within the compound and ordered him to vacate or risk being lynched. Isaac Mukembo, a resident of Budumba village says that Akuze is a fake witch doctor who should be excommunicated from their area.

Moses muzila, another resident from Butimbwa A village adds that Kadaga commands respect in their community and he is willing to defend her reputation which is now being undermined by the witch doctor’s actions.

Steven Lubalula, the Sub County coordinator of witch doctors in their umbrella body of “Uganda N’eddagala lyaayo,” says that Akuze would have approached him for guidance before proceeding to court.

The Busoga North Police Spokesperson, Michael Kasadha denies allegations that some officers are behind Akuze’s troubles.
