    Kristy Bamu 'murdered over witch claim' in Newham

    Kristy Bamu 'murdered over witch claim' in Newham



    A 15-year-old boy was tortured and drowned because a relative believed he was a witch, the Old Bailey has heard.

    Kristy Bamu, from Paris, who was spending Christmas with family, was found dead in Newham, east London, on 25 December 2010.

    Kristy had 101 injuries and died from a combination of being beaten with weapons and drowning, the court heard.

    His brother-in-law, Eric Bikubi, and his sister, Magalie Bamu, both 28, of Hathaway Crescent, Newham, deny murder.

    Mr Bikubi admits manslaughter on the grounds of diminished responsibility, a plea not accepted by the prosecution.

    'Begged to die'

    Kristy's siblings were forced to join in the attack before they were all placed in the bath to be hosed down in cold water by Mr Bikubi, the court heard.

    The teenager was said to be in such pain after days of being hit with sticks, a metal bar, hammer and chisel that he begged to die.

    "It was only when he [Mr Bikubi] realised that Kristy was not moving that he stopped what he was doing and pulled him from the water," said Brian Altman QC, prosecuting.

    "By then it was too late."

    The youngsters, who were visiting from Paris for the holiday, were forced to lie to their parents about what was happening when they phoned, the jury heard.

    When police arrived they found Kristy and his four siblings - brothers Yves, 22, and a 13-year-old, and sisters, Kelly, 20, and an 11-year-old.

    Kelly Bamu said their holiday turned sour when Mr Bikubi and Ms Bamu, originally from the Democratic Republic of the Congo, accused Kristy, herself and their younger sister of "being witches or sorcerers - practising witchcraft - and adversely influencing his three-year-old son," Mr Altman said.

    "Despite her own siblings' denials that they were sorcerers, Magalie Bamu joined her boyfriend in repeating these fantastic claims and participating in the assaults."

    The three were beaten and refused food, drink and sleep and eventually, to stop the torture, they admitted being sorcerers, the jury was told.

    But it was Kristy who became the focus of Mr Bikubi's attention, the court heard.
    Mr Altman said: "Wickedly, the defendants also recruited sibling against sibling as vehicles for their violence.

    "In a staggering act of depravity and cruelty, they both forced the others to take part in the assaults upon Kristy."

    He added: "As Kristy's injuries became ever more severe he even pleaded to be allowed to die."

    Mr Altman said Mr Bikubi's admission of manslaughter was rejected by the prosecution, which argues the couple carried out "the very deliberate murder" of Kristy.

    Ms Bamu also denies two charges of causing actual bodily harm to her sisters.
    The trial continues.

    Will never understand this voodoo witchcraft bullshit that these Africans seem to believe. So all consumed up in it they would kill a 15 year old. Saying that, the cnut that killed the poor boy made sure the boys siblings took part so as to implicate them in the crime. No doubt knowing the UK he will get a couple of years inside. Then be given a big house and enough money to keep him stocked up with voodoo dolls and lots of pins to keep him happy

    No time for the Uncle either, just deported back to his village in the congo with a boot up the arse and 'never to be allowed to return' stamped in his passport.
    if not, after getting out of prison if ever, never to receive state benefits of any form.
    The fucking Brits need to harden the fuck up with these immigrants.

    I think a lot of this voodoo and witches crap is nothing more than an excuse to cover up their psychotic behaviour, they would have done it anyway but calling someone a witch gives them justification. These type of people are animals not fit to live amongst civilised folk, throw the fucking key away.
