These two bewitched thieves stripped naked and danced with snakes at a Kenyan town

The two suspected car thieves are said to have fallen victim to 'evil powers'

Witchcraft is real or so they say.

A coastal town in Kenya was brought to a near standstill when two suspected car thieves fell victim to ‘evil powers.'

The two men had allegedly stolen a Nissan Fuga and were driving it towards Bamburi Mtambo from Bamburi Mwisho area in Mombasa.

Drama erupted when they mysteriously stopped the car, parked it outside a clinic then got out before stripping naked and bathing in a nearby pool of mud water.

“They were saying the weather was so hot and they needed a bath,” said an eye witness.

In a bizarre turn of events, a snake was following them and one of the suspects picked it up and started speaking to it. They then danced with it and seemed to be in a trance.

Some eyewitnesses said they recognized the car, which they said belonged to a man living near Anwarali, in Kisauni constituency saying the two would only be “released” after the car owner arrives at the scene.

Hundreds of curious onlookers milled around them with the Police, who arrived later, had a hard time controlling the crowd. The incident caused a massive traffic snarl-up as onlookers tried to get a glimpse of the two.

Business Insider SSA could however not establish whether they were ‘released’ by the time of publishing this story.

Incidents of witchcraft and black magic have been reported in Mombasa over the years. In January, a suspected thief was found lying outside a house from where he had stolen a goat in Majaoni area of Kisauni constituency. The suspected thief had tied the goat with a rope and used it as a pillow.
