Zim jails Congolese satanists

2013-03-09 09:38

Two Congolese nationals claiming to be devil worshippers say they have been unjustly jailed in Zimbabwe for wanting to practise satanism in the southern African nation.

The men said they have been held in a Harare prison for a year awaiting deportation after they asked to be allowed to form a “church to worship Satan” at a refugee camp in southeastern Zimbabwe.

They became official refugees after fleeing civil war and persecution in their vast, central African country.

Zimbabwe is predominantly Christian and satanism is not recognised as a legal faith.

Prison officials said they are in a quandary over the fate of the satanists who are sowing fear among prison inmates and staff.

The two cannot be deported unless the United Nations revokes their refugee status.
