I had no idea that being accused of witchcraft was still a thing. Let alone being killed for it. However, getting beaten for being a boy named Kristy, I get.
Kristy and his siblings had arrived in London from Paris to see the East London couple for Christmas. But Kelly, Kristy’s elder sister, said the trip turned sour when Eric Bikubi accused her and Kristy of practicing witchcraft and sorcery. Eric Bikubi also accused them of influencing his 3-year-old son.
“Despite her own siblings’ denials that they were sorcerers, Magalie Bamu joined her boyfriend in repeating these fantastic claims and participating in the assaults,” Altman alleged.
“They beat them, refusing to let them eat, drink or sleep for days while the punishments being meted out became increasingly violent, with them using many implements found in the flat as weapons of torture,” Altman said.
Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy could not be reached for comment, but they sure do look sad at the passing of one of their own.
Frowny faces definitely NOT added for effect
