89. I cannot stop wondering why some perpetrators tell me how they raped, tortured or killed women accused of sorcery. They tell me terrible stories willingly and include graphic details.
Ilai Nul, from Chimbu Province, is one such man.
In 1982, he killed an elderly woman accused of sorcery. Before the murder, he cut off all her fingers and thumbs, one by one, forcing her to admit that she had been involved in witchcraft.
When asked how he felt about what he had done, he said he was sorry. “That woman was like a mother to me,” he said.
