Police in Mozambique are warning bald men to be on guard as miscreants have recently murdered five such individuals in ritual killings!
Similar to the plight that has befallen albinos in various African nations, authorities say that witch doctors have ascribed tremendous 'magical' powers to the head of a bald men.
Put simply, one official explained to the BBC, "the belief is that the head of a bald man contains gold."
While some smooth-scalped people may wish this to be true, it is, of course, merely a superstition that has somehow taken hold in recent weeks in Mozambique.
