Meet the Night Runners

There seems to be a mysterious trend gripping rural Kenya, it is something which has been spoken about through the generations, a form of witchcraft for want of a better description. The people carrying out this voodoo have been given the name ‘Night Runners’. They are said to be villagers who are possessed by a demonic spirit which encourages them to wreak havoc for their neighbours at night.

Even though this is something that is occurring across the country no one really seems to know who these night runners are or what their real motives are.

For this BBC Africa Eye special we see reporter Tom Odula investigate the oddity that is night runners as he attempts to shine light on the reality behind the myths. Using secret cameras Odula manages to capture the night runners in action.
