beesA bizarre incident in which a swarm of bees clung to a motorbike in Makueni County has led to false reports that witchcraft was involved.

It has been alleged that an aggrieved man from Makueni County sent a swarm of bees to recover his stolen motorcycle.

The incident happened in Kikima Market in Mbooni Sub-County, Makueni County on Monday afternoon.

Area Assistant Chief Patrick Mwanzia quashed those reports saying the incident was a consequence of nature.

Mr Mwanzia told eDaily that the swarm of insects flew down on to a boda-boda operator’s motorbike, covering the handlebar, dashboard and gas tank after their queen bee got stuck in the bike’s handlebar.

They reportedly clung to the bodaboda for nearly an hour before flying away.

The incident came days after another similar incident on Thursday morning when thousands of bees swarmed on to another bike for nearly two hours.
