A tale of 7 goats, theft and a diviner's basket

Buhuhira subcounty in Kasese saw drama two days ago when a man whose 7 goats had earlier vanished hired a traditional diviner to find them or the thief that stole them. According to Tadeo Tumuhimbise who sent this report to News-Hapa, the youthful diviner showed up with a basket and assured his customer that it would trace the thieves. Tumuhimbise reports that indeed the basket proved itself effective and fast. “Three suspects were caught and charged with theft,” he says.

It is however unclear how the owner of the goats benefited from the expedition, given that he paid sh400,000 plus two goats to the diviner. The 7 goats initially stolen would have been worth about sh490,000 at sh70,000 a head.
