A poisoning in Palabek


In partnership with the Centre of Public Authority and International Development (CPAID) of the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), we are producing a series of six comics on public authority in different countries across Africa.

There are currently over 2 million South Sudanese refugees, most resulting from the 2013-2018 civil war. Despite now living in relative safety, most residents of Palabek Refugee Settlement in northern Uganda still experience great feelings of insecurity and uncertainty. This story, in which an old woman is accused of witchcraft, shows how people feel abandoned by camp authorities and resort to taking action themselves.

You can read the full comic below or download the PDF here.
