Kisii - A school bus driver died after drinking a potion brewed by a "witchdoctor" to prove he had not stolen books, sparking angry protests from villagers, a report said Tuesday.
The school directors in a village in Kisii district hired a witchdoctor to seek out the thief of school books, with the driver volunteering to drink a potion to prove he was innocent.
"The driver was dared... to prove his innocence by drinking the mixture," local police chief Simon Kiragu told Kenya's Daily Nation newspaper.
