Everyday for the thief, one day for the owner, they always say.
Media reports confirm there was drama in Masindi town in Kenya yet again after a swarm of bees attacked a man suspected to have stolen household items from a resident of Kijura north cell in Masindi District.
Fred Musiime, a resident of Masindi town who witnessed the incident told the Daily Monitor that the bees had covered the man’s head, neck, part of the back and others were in his pockets.
The yet to be identified man who was bare footed and half naked was carrying a black subwoofer and a DVD which he is suspected to have stolen.
“A big group of people followed him as he walked towards Masindi Police station. Others took pictures and shot videos” Musiime said.
He reportedly walked from Kirasa cell in Masindi municipality and moved along the main street. The criminal also made a stop-over at Masindi police station but there was nothing the police could do to save him, forcing the crowd to proceed to Kijura North cell in Masindi town where he is suspected to have stolen the equipment.
Video footage shared by witnesses on social media showed the man wailing as he held the music equipment in his right hand while covering his head with the left.
According to eyewitnesses, the man was in the company of Boda Boda cyclists who laughed, hooted and jeered at him all the way to a residence occupied by a female witch doctor in Kijura ward.
The occult woman poured a liquid on him and the bees vanished.
The Midwestern regional Police spokesperson Mr Julius Hakiza said the incident was not reported to Police but detectives have picked interest in the matter.
“He is suspected to have been bewitched after allegedly stealing some household items,” Mr Hakiza said.
