City mums narrate ‘horrific encounters’ with ‘majini’ in rentals
Nairobi mothers have narrated shocking details of their encounters with alleged black magic and djinns in rented houses.
The claims were made online in a popular Facebook group where mothers sought to demystify the belief that majini are all in one’s mind.
In the chilling narrations, innumerable residents living in various city estates claimed they had to vacate houses before end of the month and even opted not to demand for ‘deposit’ refunds.
Some mothers alleged that some Nairobi neighbours and landlords harbour djinns and voodos that in the end inhabit their neighbours’ and tenants’ houses.
TENANT PASSES ON
In one estate in Eastlands, a mother claimed there was a flat where every month a tenant passes on and before occupation they are usually warned never to slaughter chicken or make pork.
According to them, the slaughtering of chicken and pork bones are believed to be solutions to chasing away the demons alongside sprinkling of salty water.
Here are some of the narrations from users whose identity we will protect.
One mother recounted;
“Hizo story za majini ni za ukweli..nikuwa naishi Kawangware kwa cucu alikuwa nazo. Usiku unasikia mtu akipita kwa mabati juu but ukiuliza wanasema ni paka..paka hutembea kama mtu? So, one night nyumba yangu ilikuwa Na ile mabati light and the moon was full moon nikaona kijana ame pita uchi I saw him only the legs uchi… hiyo plot shida tu, hadi huyo cucu aka run away.”
Another one narrated;
“Kuna ingine tulikua tunaishi, apparently the tenant was thrown out juu ya kutolipa rent wee akasema na hi plot yako haitawahi kaa watu am telling you vitu tulikua tunaona usiku nakuskia woi this things are real.”
“These things are real, my neighbor was experiencing the same, then one day akanunua nyama ya nguruwe wakala akaweka mfupa above the window as they were instructed I think. Landlord alifika asubuhi 6 akawarudishia pesa yao akawaambia waame without any genuine reason.”
An Embakasi resident claimed;
“Kuna plot ya jirani kila mwaka lazima mtu akufe. Last year a teenage girl died, after she was buried the woman who sew her the burial dress committed suicide, earlier that year another Embasava driver had died.”
Another mother recounted;
“Mi niliishi moja hapa Rongai ukiomba unasikia ka kuna mtu anakusikiliza ama someone standing beside you kumbe ule mti ulikua kwa gate ulikua na na hayo mambo yote wakati plot ilipeanwa kwa ma agent wakakuja wakaukata kuni wakauza I tell you mwenye alikata alikufa na kuni ikabidi ziregeshwe ziozee hapo, nilihama the same month.”
Another one claimed;
“I once went to Umoja and noticed 80% of most houses are dedicated to evil spirits…How did I know? The design of the houses with mermaid finishes, snake designs on the gates weird symbols… My brethren if u stay in such a house you will never shift and your spiritual life is in jeopardy.”
Another one recounted;
“I used to stay in Sukari…near K.U. so this day, I was washing my clothes outside the house, weeh, I saw a very big lizard(dont know what its name is),the size of a 3-seater couch….nono vilivyo, watoi wake wameifuata, like 5 of them…vile nilijiget kwa nyumba na goosebumps, only God knows. Then another evening am walking home, napatana na tortoise mbili kubwa na watoto wake, watu wanashout,’ondoka kwa barabara zipite’….kufika apo mbele kiasi, napatana na nyoka kubwa… sio ati ni lazima ziwe jini, but also weird animals, then wenye wamezieka they really worship them.”
Another one claimed;
“Mayooooooooo!!!! This is so true….Donhom phase 8 kuna rental inaishi tu paka and its been months hakuna msee huingia hio nyumba…Its amazing paka hujua hadi lunch time, ukipita inakuangalia.”
This mum alleged;
“Most landlords have gone to the underworld to get wealth and in return the tenants suffer .you are lucky coz you have already identified there are jinis in the plot, hama haraka sana. The landlords have sacrificed the ground and that place belongs to the jinis hio vita sio yako.”
“Plead the blood of Jesus every day before I enter a new house I clean it then later I go pray to cleanse it before I enter even when people go on vacations kwa hotels sometimes you feel dizziness and body weak just pray plead the blood of Jesus everywhere.”
