Kassim Kitamkanga, aged 35 and a lady identified as Suzanna Mtitu (38), were found dead in the forest adjacent to Sovi village of Mtwango Ward in Njombe District and Region.

As far as authorities are concerned, the couple could have been victims of some forest voodoo magic which went horribly wrong.

In connection with the incident, the Police in Njombe Region are therefore holding under custody a 41-year-old man, identified as Joseph Mgunda, alleged to be a witch doctor capable of creating wealth through magic.

Gruesome murders have been taking place in Njombe

The Njombe Regional Police Commander, Khamis Issah said the couple were clients of the witch doctor, Mgunda who was supposed to transform them from poverty to riches through some forest-based magic.

“They have been undergoing ‘treatments’ from the magician, who would provide them with various herbs and voodoo artefacts to help them mint money miraculously, but unfortunately none worked, so, when the two accosted the witch doctor, demanding to be refunded they money back, he took the couple back into the magic forest and killed them…

…The suspect did not perform the murder alone, but had three other accomplices.”
