You Could Lose Your Penis in Congo

This is really a frightening statement as I do frequent the African continent for project works. Democratic Republic of Congo is a nation located at central western part of Africa.

How did the penis disappear? It seems that sorcerers could actually do that, either they make it disappear or shrink it by using witchcraft or black magic. How did the sorcerors do it? It was claimed that a mere brush of touch by them on you would be sufficient.

A jargon description has been created for situation - penis snatching. This situation is mainly happening in Kinshasa, the capital city where it has 8 million people. Out of the 8 million, so far 14 has claimed that they were victims of it.

The rumours have it that sorcerors did it to extort money from victims in exchange for cure. This is really bad. Then foreign expats would surely be targetted as they would be loaded especially when posted overseas to work (sweats).

I guess it sucks to be the victim. Then again, Other than those sorcerors, I'm sure someone can make a business out of it.
"I assume the victims in Congo don’t have access to the Internet. If they did, they’d get hundreds of offers a day for pills that can cure their problem so thoroughly that photographers would try to affix cameras to their heads." Dilbert
