A self-confessed witch doctor shocked a Narok court with a lurid confession of a ritual he performed to help a politician win a seat in the county assembly.

Robert Mwongela, who claimed to be from Kitui, testified that the ritual involved slaughtering a colubus monkey and depositing its intestines in five polling centres.

He made the testimony during cross examination by lawyer Karanja Mbugua.


Mwongela is the main witness in an election petition by former Narok county assembly Majority leader Wilson ole Masikonte who was defeated by Kikayet Kuyo for the Olposimoru seat in the last elections.

Mr Masikonte  moved to court accusing Mr Kuyo of using witchcraft to win the elections.

The witness testified to being hired for the job.
