Haitian Houngan invented Cholera Magic Powder

The Haitian Joudalist just learned that rumors in the grand Anse region of Haiti are circulating that a priest has come up with magic powder to spread cholera to the population.


Who said that we can't invent anything?

According to English.news.cn, at least 12 people were killed last week by machete-weilding mobs, and their body burned because of suspicion that they are part of a group using a magic powder to spread the cholera disease on the population.

It was also reported that the local government issued a statemend that said: "There is no cholera powder, nor cholera spirit" and the priests "can neither treat cholera, nor make a powder that gives cholera."

I am not kidding. Here is the actual link where I found this information:

Should he try to get it patented?

Do you think it's true that this priest discovered a Cholera Magic Powder?

Do you think it is possible for some people to think like this in Haiti?

Your opinion counts. Please comment

This is unbeleivable.

For Haitians to think that cholera can be given through Magic Powder.

This is so sad to hear that some of our brothers in Haiti think that there is a Cholera Magic Powder and some have lost their lives because of such belief.

It is important to educate the population about how people can be infected with the choleral virus.

This can not be done by some mystic
