Detectives Bust Robbery Suspects Who Turned To Witchdoctor To Evade Arrest


Detectives have busted a woman and her husband who had gone to seek help at a witchdoctor in order to evade arrest from detectives who were pursuing them.

Miriam Mwelu allegedly stole Ksh. 4 Million from her employer three weeks ago and had been on the radar of Crime Research and Intelligence Bureau since then.

Mwelu and her husband Timothy Akoi were busted by the CRIB detectives at the witch doctor’s house where they had gone to seek protection from the police.

“The detectives arrived in time as the suspect was being immersed in a basin containing a concoction of blood drawn from a dead fowl, whose features resembled those of a cockerel,” said the DCI in a statement.

Upon noticing the detectives, the elderly witch doctor pronounced endless incantations in an attempt to keep them at bay.

“…but that did not deter the sleuths from executing their mission much to the bemusement of Mwelu, who had closed her eyes expecting the sleuths to vanish. She couldn’t come to terms with reality, after the in-charge of the operation told her ‘mama bado tuko hapa vaa nguo twende,” reads the statement.

A set of paraphernalia forming part of the witch doctor’s tools of trade including horns, feathers and cowrie shells were recovered.

Mwelu later led the detectives to her parents’ home in Ithanga, Murang’a county, where Sh1.57million was recovered.

Also recovered was the jewelry stolen from the woman’s employer.

DCI is cautioning criminals who have committed crimes not to waste time seeking the services of wizards, to protect them from our officers.
