Business came to a standstill at Kabati shopping centre in Kitui County when two suspected thugs returned household items they had reportedly stolen from a homestead, and later got stuck on their heads. 

Kabati residents were treated with a rare cinema when the two emerged carrying a television set, a gas cylinder and a mattress, they confessed to have stolen from the homestead. 

A huge crowd milled around to catch a glimpse of the cinema as the men were marched around the town.

The drama happened after they had visited the said witch doctor who cleansed them.

Officers from Ndolos Police Station stopped some angry residents who wanted to lynch the two thieves, as the owner of the stolen items, said he was glad to have his household items back.

His house was broken into when he had gone to neighbouring Makueni County to visit a relative, and found his goods stolen. 

However, the owner still insists he will pursue the matter to ensure the thieves are punished according to the law.
