Boy, 10, fighting for his life after being burned in process to drive demons out of him

In Summary

  • The two women reportedly poured parrafin on the boy’s mouth and tried to insert a burning candle too in efforts to ‘exorcise evil spirits.’

A 10-year-old boy is battling for his life at Siaya County Referral Hospital’s ICU after he was burned in the process of driving out demons that allegedly possessed him.

The scary incident that occurred in yamninia village, Gem sub-County, on Sunday left the boy with pain, forcing him to be rushed to the hospital and consequently be admitted into the ICU.

According to her grandmother, Rose Obare, the boy has a tendency of disappearing for several days before reappearing.

It was in this state a woman approached and told her that the child was possessed with demons that were responsible for the unfortunate occurrences.

“My grandson has problems. We believe he is possessed with evil spirits. His problems made us call for prayers that we did not think would end like this,” says Obare.

On the fateful day, the woman arrived as she had promised, with candles and kerosene, the common paraphernalia that ‘wannabe’ prophets use to drive out the demons.

After spraying the kid with the kerosene and lighting the candle, the process went on for a short while but when they had screams from the room, they immediately broke in to find the boy burning.

Gem sub-County Police Commander Charles Chacha, confirming the incident, said that the two women have been arrested and locked up at Yala Police Station in connection with the unfortunate event.
