    I am surprised that the wizard was not killed by that coffin. In our home Province, Luapula, in those days – when they invoked “Ichitaleme” on a witch or a wizard, the coffin came to life and led the pallbearers to the culprit and struck them dead! Not injured. I think this is now “ichitaleme-Lite”

    Why was the coffin not doing the same while in the hands of the police?
