It turns out that the looters have been warned that someone in the Kisauni area (one of the suburbs in Mombasa where there was major violence and looting), will say a 'black magic' prayer if all the looted goods are not returned within the next 6 days.
If stolen things are not returned those looters who stole them will have a spell cast on them and they will go mad and be unable to pee!!
- So can you believe, once word had got around of the threat of this prayer being said, loads of things have already been returned. A lot came back overnight they say but in the news they showed great footage of some wood miraculously appearing back over a wall into the yard it was taken from, and even broken pieces of chairs and sofas have been returned to where they were looted from.
I really must get into this 'black magic' thing - it sounds damn useful. I'll be reading up and let you know how it works out. I do wish someone would put a spell on those big boys fighting it out for the presidency.
Things in Kenya are most definitely looking up - even if it is only for today!
