Banda Landing Site Residents have violently  destroyed their coleague's properties, accusing him and his wife of wtchcraft. 

Four Houses including a Shop, Lodges and a family house have been destroyed yet others burnt into ashes at Banda Landing Site, Bufumira Sub County in Kalangala District on allegations of possessing witchcraft that attacks residents. 

The burnt properties were the belongings of Batazze John Bright and his wife Nakityo Meeme. 

According to residents, Nakityo and Batazze bought witchcrafts that led to the death of Irene Kalija Kipusu, a resident of the landing site. 

Irene died while murmuring Meemes' name, according to Nkwanga Marvin, her relative. Her death has thus been blamed on Meemes' witchcraft.

Mukasa Robert, a resident, says the issues of Batazzes' witchcraft has been overlooked since December 2020 when he was reported to Kalangala Central Police Station.

Now, residents have resorted to destruction of Batazze and Meemes' properties so as to evict them from the area, he adds.

In a phone interview with Batazze, the husband to Meeme, these are just allegations against his wife which he is not aware of. Batazze has rejected the allegations of practicing witchcraft.

Meeme disappeared from the Banda as chaos started from residents according to Rose Ndagire the L C 1 Women leader.
