Please tell a story about a time when a person or organization tried to help someone or change something in your community:


How many of us have spent countless of our money to witchdoctors all in the name of us getting solutions to our problems?so many and the most annoying thing is that these money can be spent well investing somewhere. Citizens tv news anchor took us through the process that victims of witchdoctors go through.He and his cameraman(micheal Njenga) pretended to be business men they said that their business was doing so bad, the witchdoctor fell for their idea yet it was only a lie they went through the ritual process were given instructions on what to don and what to come with on their next appointment plus the amount of money to come with. On their next appointment they came with requirements and the same rituals were performed on them.But the truth is we all knew that this was only a set up nothing here was real.The media wanted to show these who have been victims of these trap how much time and money they waste on such people.
