Trip to Kitui Witch Doctor Turns Tragic After Man Is Killed in Cold Blood

Since time in memorial Ukambani is well known for its Witchcraft practices.

In the past few months, Kenyans have witnessed some shocking incident from the area with thugs allegedly attacked after botched robberies by some mysterious things.

However in another sad incident a man’s appointment with a witch doctor turned tragic, after an altercation between them attracted a rowdy mob that came to the rescue of the witch doctor.

Muthui Mwenga, 65, had gone to consult the traditional ‘medicine man’ in Mwingi East, Kitui County before an argument arose over an unspecified issue. 

Neighbours in Mathuki area reported hearing the wails and screams of the well known 80-year-old witch doctor, who has over the years earned himself a good reputation in Mathuki, for his trade. They immediately rushed to his rescue in their numbers.  

On arrival, they found him writhing in pain after being attacked on the head by the client turned assailant. The angry residents descended on the client with all manner of projectiles, killing him on the spot. 

We caution members of the public to refrain from taking the law into their own hands and endeavour to report crimes to police for action. 


James.. Our kamba people love and honor their 'trade'. They could not stomach an attack on their real traditional doctor!

They even killed to protect him.

Ruth.. This is what we call majoring in minors and minoring on majors ..instead cautioning members of the public from visiting witchdoctors you are talking of taking laws in their hands....

Mwngi.. Very few Kenyans have faith in the police force.

Tell Kenyans what you have done with the information about the fire in Chania High School, to date...

Francis... We should hire this witch doctor in National Police Service to assist in arresting criminals across the country instead of giving Ksh. 60 million to arrest prison escapees.

Njeru.... That witch doctor has been suspended in the next men's conference for failing to protect himself from the dangerous client.

Evans... You mean the witch doctor could not use his chemistry to defend himself?

Mike... The kind of stupidity that's in ukambani... Someone is trying to show you that the witch doctor is just a conman and you kill him instead. You could have killed the conman. Wtf!
