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.

They said that the only way the suspects could be released from the trance was only if the owner of the car intervened.The two were taken to a witch doctor who was able to release them from the ‘trance’.

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.
