Sadly, in Africa, there are people who are seeking to recapture, what they see as their pre-colonial herritage.
That includes witchcraft and such. Unfortunately, their points of references tend to be places like Haiti.
Moreover, the social attitudes to things that are out of the ordinary, are pretty stayed.
It would be completely wrong to assume Africa is particualrly primitive. It isn't. But many attitudes and activities that are almost unknown in our western world, are not uncommon there.
Two Aunts of mine, who I thought to be so religious, one CofE, the other, 7th day Advantist, have been seen going to what was described as a Black magic Priest.
It's a sad situation in relation to individualism. But that doesn't seem to be the local priority.
