Majini, Masheito, and masonic are some of the names Kenyans use to refer to dark supernatural powers. Although shunned, these practices continue to happen with almost every Kenyan, acknowledging they have heard of witchcraft and haunted houses.
Well, this is what Ruiru residents experience with a haunted house in the neighborhood.
Looking at the house, anyone would love to live there, seeing it is a block of attractive apartments. It has white paint and a vast compound. However, in contrast to the size and stature of the house, it has a mabati fence around it.
According to some residents, the house has been in existence for decades. However, no one lives in it, fuelling the haunted house notion. Reports are that the owners have tried selling it, but no one wants to buy it.
Residents claim that the owner of the haunted house did not use legit money to build it, causing the ghosts to take over the house.
According to stories, gay ghosts haunt the house. A YouTube video revealed that a man tried renting the home three years ago, but he vacated after gay spirits molested him at night.
Tweeps woke up to the house trending under the hashtag #Ruiru where they shared all sorts of funny notions regarding the house. Others also shared scary stories on their encounters with dark supernatural powers.
Io mansion ya ruiru unaingianga kitchen kufungua drawers ni body parts za watu.
Kuna drawer ya fingers, macho, tarimbo et ol
Then unaingia bedroom & you find babies, beautiful babies but with blood in their mouths.
Sitaki kuwastua me nshaingia.

Since everyone is scared to stay in this house in Ruiru, let the owner sell it to me at a throw way price and I will prove to you that "spirits are just a mere myth" . If you believe it, will always haunt you the hard way. After buying I'll convert it to a zoo pic.twitter.com/9TC2Wc7S1J
