An accused witch doctor in Nairobi may find a way to beat the charges after evidence of his alleged sorcery mysteriously disappeared from a police station.
Omar Mboni was taken into custody by authorities over the weekend in the village of Mkomba after performing a ritual at the home of a suspected witch.
In his possession were a human skull and a turtle shell which were, no doubt, to be used as proof that the purported witch doctor was up to no good.
However, when authorities got ready to head to court on Monday for Mboni's arraignment, they were stunned to discover that the evidence had vanished.
The disappearance of the skull and shell were not enough to fully free the man from his predicament as police are now investigating how the objects could have gone missing.
While one wishes that the witch doctor performed the feat himself by way of some kind of magical incantation, circumstances surrounding the alleged sorcery suggest that the caper could be an inside job.
