“The woman was ‘locked’ by her husband through some witchcraft and he was the only person who could separate them,” said Ms Muthoni. Another resident, Mr Julius Mutegi, said this is the second incident of a couple failing to separate after committing adultery.
He said that in the first incident the couple died because the husband was working in Mombasa and had demanded to be airlifted to his home so that he could separate them. A 76-year-old woman, Ann Ciambura, said such cases were common in the past and use of witchcraft was meant to curb adultery in the community.
