Rakai - Shocking, true and cruel, a story from a witness who saw fellow refugees being eaten in day light by the Bakooki speaking people in Rakai District of Uganda; the story in question takes away the mystery of fiction about cannibalism in Rakai district. This cruel vice saw the number of refugees dwindling from 7,000 people to a mere 4,000 people.
reports of Bakooki speaking people eating fellow human being have often been treated as fiction however, a testimony of Wilson Otafiire one of the remaining survivors of the returning refugee meat delicacy to the Bakooki cannibals makes a revelation of how many of his colleagues were eaten-up in Rakai.
Over 2000 refugees were eaten-up while they went attempted to make to ends meet of their daily life while they worked as casual laborers on plantations of cannibals in Rakai District,for those who lost their loved ones to cannibals in Rakai and others who failed to trek long distances they ended up committing suicide in River Kagera.
True and out of the shades of doubt, while they lost their properties along the way and scores falling sick on their trek to Uganda, for the cannibals in the District of Rakai where it was party time to fist on returning refugees from Tanzania to Uganda. The act of eating human beings in Rakai, saw the numbers of refugees drop from 7000 to 4000. But how did many of these refugees fall in the traps of the cannibals.
