Kafaba lynching: Funeral of alleged witch set for Wednesday

The final funeral rite for the 90-year-old woman, Akua Denteh who was lynched to death will come off on Wednesday, August 5, 2020.

The daughter of the deceased, Zinabu Mahama speaking in an interview on Agoo FM morning show revealed that the persons behind the incident invited her mother on several occasions after accusing her of being a witch.

“They came to my mother’s house for the third time saying she was a witch but she denied. They forcibly grabbed her for the third time. I was afraid so I had to run for my life. I was with her and looking at their number there was nothing I could do so they carried her to the spiritualist,” She said.

She, therefore, called for justice to prevail to serve as a deterrent to others.

Zinabu also denied news reportage that her grandchild was part of the incident.

She described her mom as a caring mother who has kept all her six children alive without any harm.

Madama Akua Denteh was flogged publicly by a female soothsayer with support from others who accused her of being a witch, an incident that was met with national outrage.
