The jinni black spot of Nakuru
07 February 2014, 12:30
Nakuru - Jinns have been blamed for a spate of deaths at some spot along Nakuru - Nairobi highway. According to residents, the dark spot near Blankets factory along the highway claims over 100 people every year from fatal accidents.
According to residents of Free Area Estate near the black spot, drivers allegedly 'see' a woman and kid crossing the highway. In an attempt to avoid hitting the mother and child, the drivers allegedly collide and cause accidents.
The residents say that the jinns, suspected to be owned by local tycoons residing at the popular posh Estate that borders the low class Free Area, are behind the wave of accidents that have been consuming souls, cutting lives short and leaving behind a myriad of orpharns, widows, widowers and sad relatives.
The sources that sought anonymity for fear of victimization told of strange accidents where blood from victims allegedly disappears immediately after the mysteriously crashes, linking this to demons.
Towards the close of last year, an accident along the highway claimed over five family members after a bus and a lorry collided head on.
Other black spots in Nakuru include the section near Nakuru State House, KFA round about about and Ngata along the Eldoret - Nakuru highway.
Veteran Nakuru politician, educationist and researcher, Dr. Taita Toweet perished in a horrendous smash-up with a pick-up ferrying food stuff along the highway five years ago. Tears had not dried on the faces of gospel music fans in the country mourning the untimely death of the then renowned gospel music queen, Angela Chibalonza in another tragic accident on the same road.
Jinns are evil spirits in the form of human beings and scanty animals, commonly encountered at Kenya’s coastal region and the neighboring Tanzania Republic. They are believed to be magically retrieved souls of dead people that inhabit the dark world and which torment living human beings courtesy of those who worship them.
Some Kenyans believe that at a particular period of the year, many accidents especially at the coast province occur when jinns go on rampage demanding human blood from their owners.
Locally, many people believe that wealthy people get their riches from the jinns and that they sacrifice human beings every now and then to please them. People link many strange happenings in society like tragic accidents to the works of jinns, yet often discussed in hushed tones due to fear of falling victims.
