Shock and fear engulfed a village in Kogony Korando within Kisumu County after a small coffin was found dumped in one of the homesteads within the area.
Inside the coffin was an alive chicken with a rosary on its neck. A snail was also among other things tied to it.
According to the owner of the homestead, Silvestor Okero, he found the small coffin in his home in the morning.
Okero said he got scared and called one of his neighbours to come and witness what he had found.
“The coffin was sealed so I did not open it but called one of my neighbours to come and help me on this”.
He affirmed that this is the first time such a thing was happening.
“I don’t have any issue with anyone but I suspect this might be from my close relative with who we are having land issues. It’s very sad. The chicken in the coffin was black. I have never seen such a thing. In my 50 years now” Okero said.
Neighbours who went to the homestead proceeded to report the matter at Riat Police Post before the coffin was opened.
The coffin was afterwards taken out of the homestead and burnt with the content inside.
