Police have issued warning after the latest attack on bald men which also led to part of their body parts when missing.
So far two suspects had been arrested and taken to the central district of Milange, Mozambique where the killings occurred.
“The belief is that the head of a bald man contains gold,” said Afonso Dias, a police commander in Mozambique’s central Zambezia province.
Another report noted that 3 Albinos had been killed under the same ritual attack.
“Their motive comes from superstition and culture – the local community thinks bald individuals are rich,” Commander Dias is reported as having told a press conference in Maputo.
Adding that they believe cutting the heads of bald men could result into quick richness which is believed to ‘contain’ gold.
The organs were to be used in rituals to advance the wealth of clients in Tanzania and Malawi.
One of the suspects captured was barely 20 years old, where cut heads and cut private parts were recovered.
Recently, there has been a spate of witch-doctors hoodwinking innocent public to bring body parts from disadvantaged members of the society such as albinos, East Africa had the culture spread much.
