To Serve Man

‘If I feel entitled to eat animal meat, what stops me from eating human meat? … it's clear that some people are convinced that eating human parts is not such an unnatural thing.’ So writes Dr Motsamai Molefe, a philosophy lecturer at the University of KwaZulu-Natal, interviewed in the Huffington Post about the arrest of five alleged cannibals in the South African town of Escourt in 2017. In this case, the perps claimed to be spiritual healers, able to confer health and/or riches through their concoctions.
