In Photos: Accused of Committing Black Magic
This is a selection of photos that were taken especially to inform you about “sanguma” which is a Papua New Guinean word meaning black magic or sorcery. If something weird occurs in a village, people, most commonly women, are often accused of committing black magic, or of being a witch. They are then cast out of their homes and attacked or killed.
From the spokesman of Isametoka village in Goroka who shows a grave where two women accused of sanguma were buried to victim JS at a shelter house who operated by Voice for Change, a human rights organisation in Minj, Jiwaka province, all these photos will inform about this strange thing that occurs there.
