Ugandan official: cane dead bodies as example to the living

Edwin Komakech spoke on Saturday at a security meeting in the Amuru district
about 217 miles north of Uganda’s capital, Kampala. Some who make the local
gin, called waragi, have begun distilling it with poisonous methanol.

More than 50 people have died in the last two months in Uganda from drinking
the poisonous gin.

In Uganda, the bodies of those who commit suicide are also caned as a form of
dishonour and to warn against such behaviour for the living.
