The African Christian Democratic Party is concerned at the number of muti-murders and the continued reports of body parts for secret traditional medicines.

"Prosecution, carrying the heaviest sentences for offenders, is required to eradicate this barbaric practice," says Cheryllyn Dudley.

According to Dudley, of all crimes this one deserves the death sentence since it involves cold-blooded, pre-meditated murder and mutilation of people for commercial gain.

"Doctors for Life and other medical practitioners in their position on traditional medicines urge that traditional mixtures should have ingredient labels," says Dudley.

Dudley explains that the Traditional Health Practitioners Bill might include a clause making it compulsory for these mixtures to have labels.
