On Tuesday, there was drama in Mwingi, Kitui County after a preacher was caught burying ‘witchcraft’ paraphernalia in a neighbour’s house at night.

According to residents, Kyallo Kabali, who was caught stark naked was duping them by promising to protect them from being bewitched.  

“Yesterday, they came to pray for me as a church. However, during the prayers, Kyallo called me aside.

“He told me that he felt that some of those we were praying with did not have faith. So he asked me to postpone the prayers to a later date on which only four people would attend.

“He then asked me to take a goat to church after the second round of prayers.

“While we used to view him as a good preacher, his only motive is making money,” Justus Mwaniki, one of his congregants said.

Burying ‘witchcraft’ paraphernalia  

The angered residents further claimed Kyallo has been speaking to them on matters witchcraft and how they can protect themselves from it.

Confirming the incident, area Chief Daniel Chumbo said that Kyallo would secretly bury ‘witchcraft’ paraphernalia in a victim’s house before later coming to unearth them and ‘cleanse’ the homestead, at a fee.

“My advice to residents is to be wary of conmen who come in many guises including preaching,” warned Chumbo.

It is not clear why Kyallo had removed his clothes at the time of his arrest.
