The Kisii-Nyanza region has reportedly been a “hub” of witchcraft, but a trend in Kisii county of burning to death old people suspected to be witches and wizards has now become very worrying.

Yesterday, January 14, 2017, residents of a village in Kisii county set ablaze two women alive after suspecting them to be witches.

The duo, a mother and daughter, aged 95-years-old and 53-years-old respectively, were burnt to death inside their house in the village.
