Witch doctor in Kenya allegedly sends swarm of bees to stop thieves

The victim of a robbery sought the assistance of a witch doctor to help get her stolen money back.
In a bizarre news story out of Kenya this week, two women who robbed another woman ended up covered in bees after the victim asked a local witch doctor to intervene.

The two thieves had reportedly stolen Sh100,000 (around $700) from a woman on a bus that was heading to the town of Kitengela back on September 27th.

The victim initially reported the crime to the police, but then later decided to take matters into her own hands by visiting a witch doctor who apparently set a swarm of bees upon her two assailants.
Sure enough, the thieves were later seen wandering through the streets with thousands of bees swarming all over them - much to the surprise of passers-by.

They initially attempted to find the victim's house to give the money back to her, but ended up visiting a police station and handing the money back there instead.

Incredibly, the bees reportedly flew off once the money was no longer in their hands.

"I have never seen such a thing and I have never believed in such, but it happened," said Kitengela Police Station OCS David Shani.

I'd like to add that every red letter link tapped in the article itself says something else or it's a dead link.

This horse**** was Tim Ballard diarrhea that Jim Caviezel sprayed all over and even Timmy's fellow Mormons call him a ****ing liar.

I can't speak to what Ruhanga, Mandwa and Imana do or do not do, specifically, but what is the relationship between that and whether the practice is or is not occurring?  The article doesn't appear to accuse those practitioners of anything.  I can follow the links in the article just fine.

They are the only groups with Houngan and Omurangi (Witch Doctors) in Uganda and they don't use body parts .  The links don't reinforce the article itself.

Here's another possible witchcraft story out of Africa where a lightening bolt during a soccer match killed all the players of one team and left the other team unscathed. It's been 25 years to the month since a freak blast of lightning tragically wiped out an entire football team while they were playing a game in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Central Africa. Back in October 1998, Bena Tshadi were drawing 1-1 with visitors Basanga in the Kasaï province when a bolt from the sky struck them. Local reports at the time said 11 people, both players and spectators, lost their lives to the d... [More]

Considering intelligent human life is supposed to have originated in Africa, the level of ignorance there is astonishing. Perhaps the humans who migrated from there around the world took all the available brain cells with them.

Something tells me this was nothing but a stunt and the women were in on it. Show me video of the bees magically disappearing the second they give the money back and I might think differently. Witchdoctor says "my business has gone way up since it happened" - really, you don't say. Shocking.

I don't believe the story, especially after the Witch Doctor headline. The term coined by the British describing healers, of non european or English decent. Put a negative connotation on these people as a way of making them sub human. Prior to Europeans arriving, Africa, never suffered virus out breaks, famine, nor any of the things plaguing it now.

Not buying the story either.  The human brain cannot manipulate the matter outside of it.  Not by 'willing' something to happen.  The Laws of Physics doesn't allow it.  One cannot 'direct' a swarm of bees to do anything.  They do what they do.  But, hey the Kenyan police said it must have happened. didn't.
