A youthful man in Lucky-Summer Estate, Nairobi got the shock of his life after he was given a witchdoctor’s phone number by a woman he claimed to have fallen in love with.

The man claims that while on his way home after work, he met a beautiful woman whom he thought would make a good girlfriend. He made a move and expressed his intention.

Thank goodness the woman, who looked obedient and loving, never gave him an opportunity to know what was going on in her mind. He broke ice with her and minutes later. a tete-a-tete ensued. He requested her to lend him an ear and some time. It began drizzling and he requested they get into a nearby restaurant and get to know each other more.


While in the restaurant, the man says he treated the woman with utmost respect since he saw her as the perfect woman he had been looking for all his life. After enjoying soda and chips, he walked the woman out to see her off, and in the process, he requested for her contact.

Looking all kind and nice, she accepted to give him her phone number. Coincidentally, on the adjacent wall where the man was standing, was a poster advertising Daktari wa mapenzi, kazi, ndoa na biashara (A witchdoctor who offers solutions for love, unemployment, marriage and business success) from which she picked a number and gave to the smitten man.

Realising the man would attempt calling, she told him her cell phone had no power ,and she had switched it off and left it at home charging. Luckily for her, the man was convinced and promised to call at night.

The man says that when he made an attempt to call, a strange male voice received his call. Believing he may have dialled the wrong number, he tried again only to hear the same voice.

He, however, never gave up, he consoled himself that the strange, deep and husky voice could have been the woman’s father and, therefore, saw no need to disrespect the old man by asking about his daughter. He thus, postponed making the call to the following day.


In his attempt to call the next day, he heard the same voice but this time he was being welcome for services. He introduced himself to the man and asked him if he knew the woman in question.

To his surprise, the old man answered by claiming, “kijana najua shida yako, na niko na suluhisho, unatafuta mapenzi (I know your problem young man and I have the solution to it, it is love you are looking for, right)?” bellowed the witchdoctor. He further invited him to his office for a solution.

At first, the man thought it was a joke but as the conversation continued, he realised the man was serious. The witchdoctor also confirmed to him that he made the right call and it was not a wrong number as he had earlier claimed.

It was then that he knew the woman had given him a witchdoctor’s number. He disconnected the phone unceremoniously and regretted meeting the woman.
