BY CORRESPONDENT,MOMBASA,5TH SEPT 2017-Residents of Mombasa have been treated to a rare drama Wednesday morning after two suspected car thieves were found out after they were caught by what is said to be suspected evil powers.
The two who were naked allegedly stole a Nissan Fuga and were driving it towards Bamburi Mtambo area from Bamburi Mwisho.
They would later mysteriously stop the car, park it outside a clinic, got out, undressed and started bathing in a nearby pool of muddy water.
“They were saying it was so hot and they needed a bath,” said an eyewitness.
A snake is said to have been following them.
UPESINEWS.CO.KE has also found out that the two suspected car thieves, however, picked up the snake and started speaking to it.
As hundreds of curious onlookers milled around them the two danced with it as if they were having a conversation, according to residents.
They took turns carrying the snake around their neck.
Some said they recognized the car, which they said belonged to a man living near Anwarali, in Kisauni constituency.
Some eyewitnesses said the two will only be “released” after the car owner arrives at the scene.
Police, who arrived later, had a hard time controlling the crowd.
The incident caused a massive traffic snarl-up as onlookers tried to get a glimpse of the two.
Occasionally, the two caused near stampedes as they threatened to throw the snake into the crowd.
All the while, the live snake never left their hands.
In the recent past cases of people using witchcraft to capture thieves have continued to be witnessed in Mombasa as well as other parts of the country.
