Shadrack Mdakana has not been idle since cornering the market on porridge-homunculus servants. From a more recent Daily Sun:
IN THE past Daily Sun has told the story of gangs that use the smoke from hyena tails to put people to sleep so that they can rob them . . . Now the thugs have run out of hyena tails and are making smoke in a different way! They are using digital disks and old LP records to make the smoke that leaves people defenceless against robbery.
Here’s how it works. The thugs put medicine (muthi) on blank LPs or CDs, burn them, then blow so that the smoke goes under the victim’s door. The people in the house will be asleep within minutes, and the thugs can go in and clear everything out.
“This muthi is very dangerous,” he said. “Young people, fong-kong zangoma and inyanga use it.” He said if a thug closed the door after looting the house, there was a good chance that the people inside the house could die.
You can protect yourself by attaching a blank DVD treated with a different kind of medicine to your front gate. The two medicines will fight, and the thugs will fall asleep along with the intended victims… and the victims will wake up first.
