    “some parts of the country” – this is wrong, it is all parts.

    About 80 percent of Ghanaians belief in Witchcraft, Spirits, Sikaduro all over the country, through all income classes. That does not necessary lead to the persecution of persons as witches. But it provides an unhealthy atmosphere in which human rights are always on the potential run.
