Wealthy Machakos witchdoctor, Annah Mutheu, has filed a report at Tala Police Station, claiming her life is in danger.

Ms Mutheu told police that unknown people recently made a live call to a radio station broadcasting in Kamba language and said on air that she has kept Ksh30 million in her home in Tala.

The callers, Ms Mutheu says, further told the Kamba nation that she earns at least Ksh1.8 million in a day.

In her report filed on Thursday, August 22, the witchdoctor alleged that she has been receiving calls from unknown people, who tell her they want the money.

“They have threatened to break into my house and take the said-Ksh30 million away,” reads a part of Ms Mutheu’s report.

The millionaire refuted allegations that she has such an amount of money in her house.

“I also don’t earn Ksh1.8 million in a day as claimed by the callers on radio,” said Ms Mutheu.

The propertied witchdoctor is said to own a Ksh40 million mansion in Tala, Machakos.

She also owns a collection of top-of-the range vehicles valued at tens of millions of shillings.

Ms Mutheu is a Class Eight drop-out, who claims she inherited the craft from her parents.

The mother-of-three says despite being a witchdoctor, she is an avid reader of the Bible, and never fails to attend church on Sundays.

Ms Mutheu, 41, says she has invested heavily in her looks and property so that she attracts lucrative clients.

In October last year, the witchdoctor was arrested for allegedly being the leader of a Machakos car theft syndicate.

According to police at the time, Ms Mutheu operated a network of car thieves, who drove stolen vehicles to her home and dismantled the cars into parts, which were then sold off as spare units.

When she was arraigned, Ms Mutheu was freed due to lack of evidence.
