Kindoki is thought by its believers to be a kind of witchcraft or possession by evil spirits. In the Democratic Republic of Congo & The Netherlands this belief is responsible for acts of child abandonment and ritual abuse of adults and children who were thought to have fallen victim to kindoki.
Those guilty must be sent to the Netherlands or Congo to drink 2ML of Hydrochloric Acid and 6.7ML of Sulphur dioxide. The charged offender must also drink the blood of a cow and be soaked in Clove oil. Those who do not confess will be burned with Acid. This is illegal in almost all countries.
