Politics is boring here.

Kenya: The death of an MP and two others has acquired interesting overtones with the discovery of a bag containing suspected witchcraft material near where James Mutiso drowned. There is also much speculation as to why a female traditional healer was in the car with the MP. The three people drowned when the car they were travelling in was swept away as the driver tried to cross a swollen river.

Among superstitious villagers, the discovery of the witchcraft material is being cited as proof that evil spirits had been unleashed to destroy their MP.
In Ukambani, such things don't just happen. The vehicle stalled mid-stream and now witchcraft tools are found around the scene. There is something fishy here, said Mr Sebastian Mutua from Katangi, firmly dismissing suggestions the incident might be a normal rainy season accident.

Evangelism, witnessing and similar activitites go by one name here—advertising, and is no different from spam for viagra, penis enlargement products and pornography. We do not take advertising. If you want to advertise your imaginary friend, please spend your own money on your own web space to do so. Any attempts to use the comments section for advertisements will be deleted, and the perpetrator barred, unless they are particularly stupid, in which case I reserve the right to pinch an idea from Teresa Nielsen Hayden and delete all the vowels.

Allowed HTML: a href, b, br, p, strong, em, ol, ul, li, blockquote, q, pre. If your name has accents in it, things will (hopefully!) work better if you use the XHTML entities for those letters. The same applies if you are using a word processor to compose your comment, then copying and pasting the text—either turn off curly quotes and avoid using em-dashes, or edit your comment after pasting to get rid of them. Garbled comments usually get deleted.
