It has been reported by the Haitian authority that at least 45 Voodoo priests in Haiti have been killed by the Haitian population because these people assumed the voodoo priests or Houngan, also sometimes called Mambo were responsible for the cholera outbreak in their community. The population suspected that these voodoo leaders have been spreading the cholera disease through their magic power.
It was also reported that these people were killed violently, either by machete, stone or sometimes, just burned to death.
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."
