An obsession with witchcraft and sorcery led a couple to brutally murder a 15 year old boy in east London. The practice of child witch exorcism is not uncommon in DR Congo, but there are concerns about how it is following migrants into their new communities in Europe. Kindoki is blatantly faith-based child abuse, purporting healing through conjuring tricks at a price to the terrified parents that are being conned. This hideous practice of child exploitation has to stop.
