Two women arraigned for possessing witchcraft paraphernalia

11 November 2015, 11:53 Steve Njuguna

Nyahururu - Two women were Tuesday arraigned in a Nyahururu court for allegedly causing havoc and possessing witchcraft paraphernalia.

Teresa Wambui pleaded guilty to the charges while her co-accused Nelly Wanjiru denied the charges before resident magistrate Victoria Ochanda and was released on KES 50 000 bond until November 18 when the cases will be mentioned.

The two were charged that on November 8 at Makindu village in Ol Kalou Nyandarua County, they dumped two snakes measuring about one meter each, a can of black soil, hippopotamus and crocodile bones all packed in a plastic bag at the home of Evelyn Wambui whom they have been having differences with over a piece of land.

The court heard that the complaint was shocked to find the items as she entered her home and reported the matter to Ol Kalou police station where she told the police that the two women could have been behind the incident.

The prosecutor further told the court that there was also a note inside the bag with the numbers 666 and ‘more fire’ warning.

The two women were arrested and taken to Ol Kalou police station after investigations where they were charged with the offences.

In mitigation, the first accused pleaded with the court to be lenient to her since she was the breadwinner of her two children.

“We had sought the advice of a witchdoctor who advised us to dump the paraphernalia in the complainant's home so we could take over the piece of land,” she said.

Her case will be mentioned on November 18 for judgment.
