Well, now you can say you have seen it all. Also, you can now own your own personalised ‘jini’, if a newspaper ad is anything to go by.
A ‘Jini’ also romanized as djinn is any of a class of spirits, lower than the angels, capable of appearing in human and animal forms and influencing humankind for either good or evil.
An enterprising Kenyan is selling each jini for Sh 30,000.
Going by the name Zekeke, the seller from Lunga Lunga in Kwale County, put up a paid classified ad in a local daily saying, “NUNUA jini ukue tajiri leo kwa 30K-no bad effect”
Speaking to Nairobi News, Zekeke warned that a buyer should use it as an individual and not a group.
He said that any interested buyers who are not able to raise the full amount upfront can pay in installments before he releases the ‘magical powers’.
“It doesn’t matter where you are in the country, when you are ready with the money, just tell me and I’ll then talk to the jini and see if it is willing to travel,” said Zekeke.
He adds that the Djinns will be in the buyer’s command who will be able to command it to do “whatever they wish”.
Some of the alleged benefits include wealth, making a business prosperous, and sorting out difficulties in conceiving among others.
“There will be some instructions that I must give you before handing over, which you must follow. The jini will then be yours to command,” he told Nairobi News on phone.
The magical powers are reportedly from Congo and are loaned to a buyer for two years.
