According to Adom Online, the incident left people baffled after they watched as a wallet turned into a deadly cobra in the hands of the thief as a result of black magic.
It was gathered that the 27-year-old thief identified only as Mdu, had snatched the wallet from the owner, not knowing that he was playing with fire as the owner is a known witch doctor, and when he tried to open it to see what he got for his efforts, the wallet turned into a cobra that wrapped itself around his hand.
An eyewitness revealed that the terrified thief tracked the native doctor who was about to board a taxi and confessed that he stole his wallet and wanted to return it.
“He stole a wallet from an old man; people around are just saying the old man is a Sangoma (native doctor), but no one knows the man around. When he snatched the wallet he went behind a billboard; that’s when the wallet turned into a snake.
Now he tracked the man and found him but the problem is the old fellow is denying his wallet. He even produced a pouch like a wallet as proof to show that the snake wallet wasn’t his.
The snake is not biting him but it’s stuck in his hands as he failed to throw it way; this is first-grade black magic.”
“The police just come after a commotion but they ignored the case. I am not sure what he is thinking right now but if the owner denies the wallet, they will have to visit a popular local sangoma to cast out the spell,” the witness said.
