Africans, We are very superstitious, so the superstitions in Africa, usually, is a part of everyday life.
A lot of our superstitions are related to witches. For witchcraft in Africa, often accuse women and even children. It is believed that the witches have night meetings in the forests and seas. Then they agree on how to hurt people. Moreover, many nocturnal animals, especially birds, are suspected as witches.
