Busia - Busia residents were puzzled when a man was caught administering herbal concoction to form four candidates to enable them pass the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education examinations that kick off Tuesday.
The 24-year-old man, Ali Juma, was found locked in a house in Alele village, Teso North Sub-County, with two naked female candidates.
When asked what he was up to, he insisted the concoction he had prepared contained ingredients that would activate the candidates’ brains to think quickly, particularly while in the examination room.

Juma explained that the concoction is mixed with water with which the candidates’ bath before a Quran is used to declare them blessed.
However, he was at pains to explain why he had to lock himself with the two girls in a house at night.
Area residents condemned Juma’s concoction saying he was practicing witchcraft.
Amagoro location chief, Godfrey Olungur, promised to investigate the matter and take appropriate action while the school’s principal, Doris Onyango, said that the two girls need counseling.
