‘Kukwamana’ as the slang is majorly used is not witchcraft but a medical condition known as captivus which occurs during intimacy.
P*nis captivus is a rare occurrence during s3xual intercourse which occurs when the muscles in the v*gina clamp down on the much more firmly than usual.
This makes it impossible for a man’s manhood to be withdrawn from the v*gina.
A man’s manhood becoming stuck in the v*gina is one possible outcome of a condition called v*ginismus, in which the v*gina involuntarily closes due to muscle spasms in the pelvic floor.
If p*nis captivus occurs, the effect is likely very temporary. If both partners relax and give it some time, the muscles should relax, allowing the couple to separate.
Despite being a medical condition some people believe that sometimes witchcraft is involved in ensuring couples engaging in infidelity get stuck to each other.
The ‘sticking’ is usually a request from a spouse with an aim to catch a partner red-handed.
In 2017, a 56 year old man from Tanners Estate in Nakuru brought the town to a stand still after getting stuck during their illicit escapades.
The father of five was having a romp with his wife’s sister at a Nakuru lodging.
A night of fun transformed into a dawn of pain as the duo screamed for help after failing to extricate themselves from the embarrassing situation.
Lodging attendants acting on hearing the screams rushed to the room where the two were booked and broke the door, only to find the two ‘lover birds’ physically stuck.
The man’s wife, Margaret Nabwire, confessed to seeking witchdoctor’s intervention as her husband has been engaging in flings with different women, prompting her to take action.
Nabwire, who lives with her husband in Kisii town confessed to paying a local witchdoctor, Annette Mutheu, Ksh40,000 to enable her nab her rogue husband.
“This woman (Nabwire) came to me complaining that her husband was unfaithful.
I told her to write the name of her husband on a piece of paper, after which I will use kamuti (concoction) to lock him and his lover up.
As evident, the kamuti has worked.
I lock up philandering couples for Ksh40,000.
The cost of separating a stuck couple would be incurred by the victims,” said Mutheu.
That is not an isolated case as police were called to a scene in South Africa after a married woman and her toy boy got stuck.
Rumour spread that her husband had asked a witch doctor to put a curse on her private parts.
Sasha Ngema, 34, had reportedly been romping with toyboy Sol Qoboza, 22, at a rented apartment in the city of Johannesburg in South Africa while her husband was away on business.
According to a local media in South Africa, Sasha’s husband cast a spell, known as a muthi.
Muthi is designed to make sure that if someone other than the husband tries to have with the woman in question, he will remain stuck until the husband returns to exert his revenge.
The shocked couple began calling for help, which soon turned into screams as they became more desperate for him to withdraw.
In 2016, a senior county officer from Kilifi with a married woman took the phrase ‘Utumishi Kwa Uma’ literally, after he got stuck while having with a married woman.
The story went viral after a renown Kilifi blogger Samir Nyundo posted the incident.
“ONE OF THE COUNTY CHIEF OFFICERS AMESHIKWA NA ‘TEGO’ AKILA URODA NA BIBI YA MWENYEWE, MGANGA AMEITWA SAA HII (ONE OF THE COUNTY GOVERNMENT CHIEF OFFICERS IS STUCK WHILE HAVING A S3XUAL AFFAIR WITH SOMEBODY’S WIFE. A WITCHDOCTOR HAS BEEN CALLED NOW),” THE POST READ.
