A man wants police to protect his family against ghosts. The strange case was reported last week to the Kakamega Police Station by a man from Makhundi village in Navakholo constituency.
According to the Occurrence Book report, ‘jinnis’, allegedly working on the instructions of Juma Abucha’s relatives, have been unleashing terror on his wife and their daughter at night.
When we traced him, Juma told The Standard that for the past six months, ghosts have been tormenting and giving his family sleepless nights, demanding that he send his wife, who is disliked by his relatives, away.
Strange things started happening once in a while months back when the alleged ‘jinnis’ would cook and eat in their house or slap his wife and daughter.
“We could find used utensils or hear strange voices ordering us around or at times people would get slapped,” he said.
When he first reported the bizarre matter to neighbours, some dismissed him. Others resolved never to set foot in the home again. He took the matter to religious leaders, who prayed for him and his family in vain.
