Elderly in Kenya’s Kilifi Coast are murdered over accusations of witchcraft, often to seize their land, BBC Africa Eye reveals.

Victims like Tambala Jefwa, attacked for alleged sorcery, actually face disputes over their 30 acres. Julius Wanyama of Haki Yetu warns of weekly killings and family complicity using witchcraft as a cover for sympathy.

With land ownership crucial but undocumented, elderly men are primary targets.

Despite efforts like the Malindi District Association’s shelter, justice remains elusive, with impunity for attackers.

The tragedy spotlights a national crisis endangering cultural reverence for elders, turning them into targets of fear and violence.
