Criminals turn to witchcraft to evade DCI arrest in Kiambu

Criminals have resorted to witchcraft and other unorthodox methods, in a bid to evade detection by the detectives.

On Tuesday, detectives based at the elite Crime Research and Intelligence Bureau (CRIB) supported by their Special Services Unit (SSU) counterparts, pounced on a suspect who took off with KSh 4million from her employer three weeks ago.

The suspect identified as Miriam Mwelu, who was accompanied by her partner Timothy Akoi, were found at a renowned witch doctor’s house in Gachie, Kiambu county, where Mwelu had gone to seek protection from the police.

The detectives arrived in time as the suspect was being immersed in a basin containing a concoction of blood drawn from a dead fowl, whose features resembled those of a cockerel.

Upon noticing the detectives, the elderly witch doctor pronounced endless incantations in an attempt to keep them at bay, but that did not deter the sleuths from executing their mission much to the bemusement of Mwelu, who had closed her eyes expecting the sleuths to vanish.

A set of paraphernalia forming part of the witch doctor’s tools of trade including horns, feathers and cowrie shells were recovered. Among the services offered by the witch doctor as detailed on a long list seen by the detectives was ‘Kutoshikwa na DCI’ attracting a fee of KSh5,000. Later, the suspect led the detectives to her parents home in Ithanga, Murang’a county, where KSh1.57million was recovered.

Also recovered was the jewelry stolen from the woman’s employer.
DCI is cautioning criminals who have committed crimes not to waste time seeking the services of wizards, to protect them from our officers.
