Tanzania: Woman Freed After Being Held In An Underground Concrete Chamber For Eight Months


From 2016:

This is the distressing moment a young woman is found naked in a concrete pit after being kept there for eight months by her boyfriend because a witch doctor said it would make him rich. Shocking video shows the victim hunched in a ball on the floor after being discovered by police in Tanzania. The woman, thought to be in her 20s, was shackled to the wall of the tomb and had only been fed twice a week.She was horrendously emaciated, her back muscles had fused together and she winced at seeing daylight. She is expected to need months of rehabilitation to help her walk properly again, it was reported by Buzz Kenya. Local media reported the boyfriend had constructed the makeshift prison after a witch doctor said he had to bury the person he loved most in order to become rich. Source
