Witchcraft, Wealth and Disability: Reinterpretation of a folk belief in contemporary urban Africa.

Nora Groce and Julia McGeown, Eds.: Leonard Cheshire Disability and Inclusive Development Centre , (2013)


Many groups in sub-Saharan Africa have historically linked persons with disabilities with witchcraft as a component of a wider link between accusations of witchcraft and socially marginalized populations. It is commonly assumed that traditional prejudices towards persons with disabilities are receding in light of urbanization, education, mass media and efforts to confront such prejudice and stigma by governments, disability advocates and civil society. Ratification of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) by many African countries is considered an additional impetus for change. Working Paper Series: No. 30
