Bees Attack Two Thieves Over Stolen Cow In Kenya
The two suspects, Phillip Wekesa, 32, and Mwamba Ili, 25, walked into the police station with the cow while covered by a swarm of bees and kept screaming as the bees stings them.
Upon learning of the incident, the police immediately contacted one Lilian Waithera, who had on Thursday, made a report at the station that her cow was missing.
Waithera arrived at the station and positively identified the cow as hers. She confessed to having sought a witch doctor’s services to help her find the cow which had been stolen two days earlier.
“I am told that the suspects had tried to sell the cow at the Makutano market, but did not find a buyer. That was before the bees shepherded them to the station where they surrendered the cow,” she said.
In a bizarre incident, the witch doctor was reportedly asked to reverse the spell he cast on the ‘thieves’, and commanded the insects into a bag he was carrying.
After performing his ‘magic’, bees swarmed into a bag he was carrying and the sorcerer casually walked out of the police station leaving residents shocked.
Meanwhile, the two suspects are being held at the Makutano police station.
