Excusez-moi de présumer que vous ne suivez pas de près les faits divers dans la presse ougandaise. Heureusement, je m’en occupe pour vous.
Et c’est ainsi que le très sérieux hebdo The Independent rapportait mercredi dernier sur son site (pardon pour le retard) cette nouvelle selon laquelle une école primaire avait été attaquée par des fantômes.
Plus intéressant que la nouvelle elle-même est son traitement. Les « faits » sont rapportés comme s’il s’agissait d’un accident de voiture. Personne ne met en cause l’existence des fantômes. Le journaliste explique ce qui s’est produit, froidement, comme s’il s’agissait d’une attaque de fantômes comme les autres.
Ghosts attack Kitebi Primary School again

Kitebi Primary School which has been in news for alleged ghost attacks yesterday had a final blow for the term as the ghosts reportedly attacked pupils both at the school and those at home.
Pupils who were allegedly attacked from their homes were brought back to the as the ghosts reportedly demanded to be taken where they had come from.The residence of Naomi, the ex-wife of the Headmaster of the school, was axed down in her absence by one of the annoyed pupils at the school.
The witch doctors together with the pupils who had been attacked demanded that her house be opened so contain the ghost attacks. Small drums with other bottles were removed from the house.
Naomi confessed that she was responsible for the ghost attacks and declared that the ghosts had overpowered her. She was told to take the “illizi” (beads around the waste) to the police station as a sign that she had abandoned the ghosts.
Following these events, the Education Ministry closed the school and pupils were sent back home. It was total drama at the school as witch doctors and born again Christians competed at exorcising the demons. School authorities said Shs. 2m is need for the school to be cleansed and added that some animals will be sacrificed in the rituals.
