III. Kikuyu


Introduction. Many Kikuyu, as well as the people of other tribes, trouble themselves greatly with the fear of witchcraft. They do not often bother to inquire the source of the stuff and what it is made of. They simply believe that there is such a thing and that a person may die as a result of it, and this fills the hearts of every one with the fear of death by witchcraft. People die from various diseases, and it is frequently supposed that the person has been bewitched, but often this is not so. Whenever a person is taken ill and dies suddenly, it is said that he has been bewitched.
