Reminds me of my savage primary school teacher who when punishing us for whatever reason, would pinch our ears with his nails and demand we scream, “Kanigala ka njuchi ” (I am currently undergoing a bee bite). Yes the mambala last name was from Eastern 😁

Bizarre event yesterday in Luanshya town leading to a Presidential rally dispersed by a sudden bee swarm envasion.

Just how and why?
According to my research …
Some of the reasons that causes bees to chase people unprovoked includes;

1) Protective instincts; Bees are naturally protective of their nests or hives, and they perceive any sudden movement or intrusion as a potential threat.

2) Defending the hive; Bees are particularly defensive when guarding their hives, and they might chase perceived threats away to protect the colony.

3) Territorial behavior; Bees established territories around their nests and if they perceive someone encroaching they may respond defensively.

4) Flight response; Flees are programmed to flee from potential treats, and chasing behavior may be an attempt to drive away what they perceive as a danger.

5) Mistaken identity; Sometimes, bees may mistake humans for larger predators or threats, especially if they are moving quickly or making loud noises.

6) Alarm pheromones; If a bee stings and releases alarm pheromones, it can attract other bees to the area, potentially leading to more apparent aggression.

7) Protecting resources ;Bees might also chase people if they associate them with a perceived threat to their foraging resources or food sources.

8)Use of strong scents and perfumes; In some cases bees may interpret the unfamiliar scent as a potential threat , leading to defensive behaviors such as chasing.

No wont add mfwiti (witchcraft) 🤔
