Kampala - Ten women have come out to testify against a traditional healer on allegations that he tricked them into having sex with him after saying that it is the only way to make his medicine work.
Salongo Kyotaite has been arrested by police in eastern Uganda district of Iganga after a woman called Sarah Nabaka reported that he forced her into sex when she went to his shrine for treatment.
Nabaka told police that she had gone to see the witch doctor so that he gives her herbal concoction to help her conceive.
" He first smeared some liquid in my private parts before raping me. As he did it, he said that was the only means of him inserting herbs into me which would help me to become pregnant, said Nabaka.
On learning that the witch-doctor had been arrested, 9 other women have come out saying he used the same trick to sleep with them. They want to testify against him in a court of law.
" Two years ago, he used the same trick to rape me but up to now I have not conceived," said one of the women only identified as Kagoya.
