A 50-year-old witch doctor has been sentenced to seven years in prison after authorities discovered three human skulls and blood in his shrine. John Magombe, residing in Masajja, Makindye Ssabagabo, received the sentence from High Court Judge Margaret Mutonyi.

During the sentencing, Justice Mutonyi emphasized the importance of this case as a warning to the public. She urged people to report traditional healers who exploit human body parts to manipulate and intimidate their clients. Such practices often involve either human sacrifice or the desecration of graves to obtain the necessary parts.

Magombe’s admission of guilt played a significant role in his sentencing. To avoid the maximum penalty of life imprisonment, he pleaded guilty, revealing that he purchased the skulls from other witch doctors. This confession allowed the police to expedite their investigation without needing to determine the exact origin of the skulls.

As a result, Magombe was sentenced to seven years, but with time already spent in remand considered, his remaining term is 5 years, 8 months, and 4 days.

Court documents reveal that Magombe committed the offence in his shrine located in Kazinga Masajja, Kibira B village, Masajja Parish, Makindye Ssabagabo in Wakiso District.
