Yesterday, there were circulations of clips capturing an incident in Kisii where four elderly women were set on fire for allegedly engaging in witchcraft.

The incident happened in Marani, Kitutu Chace North, Kisii County with the women identified as Jemima Mironga, 60, Agnes Ototo, 57, Sigara Onkware, 62 and Sindege Mayaka, 85.

Although it’s unclear the circumstances that led to the same, reports reveal that the women were accused of practicing black magic in the community by causing harm to the people.

Apparently, there have existed scenarios where unexplained deaths have happened with the elderly women, said to have had a hand in them.

In one of the revelations, a form two student in one of the local schools was reportedly bewitched and upon regaining his speech, he placed the four elderly women at the center of his predicament.

The women were assaulted before being burnt to death. Their bodies were transferred to Kisii Referal Hospital with authorities pledging to bring the other people involved in their murders to book.
