  1. Hello there — I am a journalist in New York for the digital news organization Vocativ.
    We are doing a story about the reported case of cannibalism in Rakai District in March.

    Is it possible to get some answers to these questions:
    How many cases of suspected cannibalism does the Uganda police force investigate in an average year?
    Are the number of cases going up or down?
    In what part of the country does it occur most?
    Is cannibalism illegal in Uganda? If it is not, what are people usually arrested for in connection with cannibalism?

    Many thanks in advance for your time.
