Police in Mombasa have arrested the four for stage-managing the Wednesday morning dramatic sorcery incident in Bamburi.
In a bizarre turn of events, two men, covered in mud but one had a snake around his arms and neck. The two were seen dancing and seemed to be in a trance.
Residents of Bamburi said that this was witchcraft on the fast lane.
The suspects, two witch doctors who are Ugandan and two other men who posed as the disgraced thieves, were arrested and arraigned before the Shanzu Law Court later in the day.
Police sources say the woman, who alleged to be the owner of the ‘stolen’ car, is being grilled at the Bamburi Police Station.
The alleged witch doctors are accused of being in possession of a snake without a licence from the KWS.
