A 9-year-old boy and his 11-month-old sibling has allegedly been chased out of the house by their aunt over witchcraft allegation in Congo.
According to Facebook user, Ivuoma Tom, the homeless children lost their father due to “lack of care and money”, while their mother died at childbirth.
They were reportedly living with their auntie before she drove them out and accused them of being the witches derailing her life and business.
Sharing a photo of the orphans, Ivuoma wrote,
“Auntie chases 9 year old boy and his 11 month old little brother from her house, calls them witches
They have been living on the street for 2 months now and they are feeding with the help of generous people they find on the street. But they don’t have a fixed roof to sleep on, it’s on the walking table that they sleep with their brother (baby). That bag they hold in their hands is their suitcase where they put their clothes 😢😢
ISAAC told me: THAT his father was a taxi driver he died due to lack of care and money. His mother died from Cesarean while giving birth to his little brother.”
While the majority of his family are in Goma the only aunt is here in Kinshasa unfortunately she ended up chasing us without a reason accusing us of witches, that is we are the ones blocking her house and business. Without letting go of his little brother despite the suffering ISAAC says: “If it is to die of hunger together with my little brother yes I will, but I will never abandon him” -THIS IS THE WORD THAT TOUCHED ME SO MUCH.”
