The school directors in a village in Kenya’s southwestern Kisii district hired a witch doctor to seek out the thief of school books, with the driver volunteering to drink a potion to prove he was innocent.

“The driver was dared… to prove his innocence by drinking the mixture,” local police chief Simon Kiragu told Kenya’s Daily Nation newspaper.

“The 33-year old collapsed and died immediately after the drink.”

Furious villagers then took revenge on school leaders by torching the school bus and the deputy director’s house- AFP
