KAMPALA Central MP Erias Lukwago has told Parliament that a high-raking UPDF officer could be involved in child sacrifice. Lukwago was reacting to concerns raised by the Speaker, Edward Ssekandi, about the increase in cases of child sacrifice.
Citing the latest case in Bukedde ku Sande, Ssekandi said: â€œThis practice has continued, but we do not know what steps have been taken to curb it.â€
Lukwago said a man, who he did not name, was nabbed in Busiro with a human skull.
The man, who claimed to be a traditional healer, said he was a driver of a UPDF officer, who authorised the use of his vehicle.
Ssekandi asked Lukwago to bring the documents to the House today after information minister Kabakumba Matsiko asked for details.
Lukwago later showed journalists copies of documents identifying the traditional healer under different names.
The New Vision could not verify Lukwagoâ€™s claims or the authenticity of the documents.
Army spokesman Maj. Felix Kulaigye denied knowledge of the incident.
