Child Witches: Accused in the Name of Jesus

While the government does not condone physical abuse of children, he told ABC News that the effort to protect children from mistreatment by pastors is problematic since "important people" attend some of the churches in question.

Happy Endings Rare for Accused Child Witches

Because of people like Mushiete, there are sometimes happy endings for accused child witches.

Mushiete has adopted two brothers, Reuben and Joseph, who were kicked out of their homes after they were accused of being witches. They now live with Mushiete, his wife and their two biological sons.

Reuben, 13, told ABC News how he was whipped and beaten by his old family.

When we asked if he was still angry, he cried and said, "No, because my father, Arnold, told me not to be. It's the past. It's over."
