They don't, but because their culture/religion allows it, burning witches is the perfect excuse for dispatching of old people who own land but don't want to share it with their younger relatives. Here's the "upside" of the forcible introduction of Christianity and Islam in a continent that was run by tribes, which in tandem with the creation of arbitrary lines by their invaders, gave birth to countries which on occasions composed of rival tribes, while separating allies!
Of course this is the logic behind the burning of witches in Africa, this might be unrelated!
