The truth which will be very strongly denied by all is that no major presidential candidate will dream of standing for the presidency anywhere in Africa without consulting a witch doctor.
Prior to the 1992 initial multi-party elections, some curious visitors of the then president arrived from Mombasa, brought to the city by Shariff Nassir. Their mission was to prepare the presidential candidate that Mr Nassir was supporting for the presidency. The "visitors" stayed at a well-known Nairobi hotel.
Another leading presidential contender challenging President Kibaki is said to often seek witch craft powers from West Africa. Don't even talk about MPs because a vast majority of them seek out witch doctors and this period leading up to the elections is a very busy time for medicine men countrywide who usually make a windfall.
