Rise in witchcraft & Satanism in KZN

A student’s eerie discovery of burning candles, a jar of blood and a knife within a six- pointed star at the University of KwaZulu-Natal has alarmed occult experts, who warn there is an upsurge in witchcraft and Satanism in Durban, Pietermaritzburg and Richards Bay.

Of particular concern is that the symbol of the six-pointed star was also found last week at the scene of the suicide of a Reservoir Hills teenager, Kyle Mudaly, 16, with claims he had occult links. This is denied by his family.

Mudaly was found with a deep incision to his chest, with blood smears around it. A six-sided star was daubed in black ink on his bedroom wall.

The police and the university are aware of the latest discovery.

The UKZN student, who asked to remain anonymous, said he had stumbled on the witchcraft scene at Westville Campus L Block with a group of friends, when he noticed the light on in a store room in a corridor.

He said he had also noticed about 15 decapitated birds on campus this week.

“The door to the store room was open and as I was walking out I pushed the door closed with my hand and a friend said that the light was on. I put my hand inside to turn the light off and there was a line of rough salt by the door and my friend stood on the salt and heard it break. I looked back and saw the salt,” he said.

“Inside the room there was a circle and a six-sided star with symbols around it and three candles burning and there was a little container with blood in it and a knife. I got a kind of eerie feeling when I walked into the room,” he said.

“I took a picture because I didn’t think anyone would believe me. I had nightmares about it but I’ve been trying not to let it affect me,” he said.

He said he believed a devotee had been disturbed and fled, because the candles were still burning.

UZKN spokeswoman Nomonde Mbadi said the university was aware of the incident. “This is a sensitive matter that is receiving attention,” Mbadi said.

The student said he had shown his mother the photograph and she had alerted a member of the local community police forum who had reported it to the Westville police station.

Westville police station spokesman Stephen Clarke said police were aware of the incident but nobody had opened a case. He said a member of the community policing forum believed there could be a link with Mudaly’s suicide.

“An inquest docket has been opened at Sydenham and possibly, if the family requests it, part of the investigation may look for a link to the rituals that took place and his death. The premise of the inquest is to see if there is any foul play in his death,” Clarke said.

“Officially no crime has taken place. Satanism is not a crime. You have the freedom to worship whatever you want to worship but there may be elements that may be a crime like the killing of animals,” Clarke said.

Occult expert and sociologist Dr Kobus Jonker said he was receiving calls for help every week from every province with hot spots including the three KZN cities, Cape Town, Fish Hoek and on the West Rand in Krugersdorp, Randfontein and Roodepoort. In some cases students were turning to witchcraft to pass exams.
