Watch: Shock as stolen TV gets stuck on thief’s head for over 4 hours

25 February 2016, 10:32

Busia, Kenya - A suspected thief shocked residents of Busia town near the Kenya-Uganda border after a television set he had stolen from a Ugandan businessman got stuck on his head for over four hours.

The suspect is said to be a notorious thief who has been terrorizing area residents, until the spell of a witch-doctor fell on him Wednesday morning.

It is alleged that the man, who hails from Kaliwa village in Teso district in Busia Kenya, crossed over to Uganda three days ago where he made away with the TV set among other electronics.

Charles Ogutu, the owner of the TV, said he resorted to the witch-doctor’s charm as he had lost many items to theft.

“He (the witch-doctor) gave me a timeline of 24 hours, saying we would catch the thief by Wednesday morning. True to his word, we caught him this (Wednesday) morning,” Ogutu told KTN.

Duncan Omoding, the witch-doctor from Teso district had to perform rituals and apply charms on the man to save his life.

This is not the first such incident to be reported in the country.

Last year, two suspected cattle thieves from Molo town in Nakuru County shocked many after they started eating grass and demonstrating how they performed raids.

This was after taking a witch-doctor’s concoction, Citizen TV reported.
