By Mirembe Martina

A story has been circulating about a Ugandan woman who turned into a snake after allegedly stealing money from a Sudanese man.

We have confirmed reports that the story is a hoax as the woman does not exist.

The story which has been circulating in a local newspaper, ‘Kamunye’ is a fraud. The pictures on the newspapers come from youtube, a video which was posted of a snake in Indonesia which looked like a human and a dog.

It has been circulated that the woman, whose name has never been identified was a street walker (prostitute) and had gone with a Sudanese man to offer her services. However, upon reaching the bedroom, he went to freshen up and she got a chance to escape.

It is reported that the woman fled with a lot of money and the man’s laptop and in revenge, the man bewitched her and she started turning into a snake.

The horrific story however is not true as there is no supporting evidence to prove that the woman exists. The photograph used was obtained from a video from Youtube which was first posted in 2009 December and re-posted in 2010 January.
