Kampala - Two thieves who connived to steal a briefcase at a taxi park in eastern Uganda town of Bugiri got shocked when they found out that it contained two big snakes instead of cash and other valuables.
Gideon Owana and Silvester Pamba grabbed a briefcase from an elderly man as he entered the taxi park at around 6.30 pm and took off with it.
The old man who lost the briefcase told those who gathered to console him that he was a traditional healer on his way to Busia where he was going to work on Tuesday and Wednesday.
''I am confident that I will get that briefcase with all its contents,'' he assured the people without revealing the contents.
The thieves went straight to a local bar not far from the park belonging to Bbere Ddene where they reportedly often converged to share their loot only to find the snakes.
