A well-known pickpocket was left begging for mercy on Monday morning after snatching a wallet that quickly turned into a deadly cobra into his hands.
The 27 year old Mdu (as known by his colleagues) snatched a wallet from an alleged Sangoma’s pocket. Monday morning was a different day in his office when the wallet turned into a snake when he was opening it.
“He stole a wallet from an old lad, people around are just saying the old man is a Sangoma but no one knows the man around. When he snatched the wallet he went behind that billboard that’s when the wallet turned into a snake.
“Now he tracked the man and found him but the problem is the old fellow is denying his wallet, he even produced a pouch like wallet as proof to show that the snake wallet wasn’t his.
The police just come after a commotion but they ignored the case, I am not sure what he is thinking right now but if the owner denies the wallet they will have to visit a popular local sangoma to cast out the spell,” he said.
A police officer who was at the scene, revealed that they can’t do anything about it but have only called the Parks and Wildlife management department.
