Here are a few more photos from the Muti shop we visited earlier this week. I wonder what's in the jars?
Muti has occasionally received negative press for allegations of a darker side. There have been cases in recent years where people - particularly children and albinos - have been supposedly killed for their body parts, which some believe will bestow power and success. While I'll admit the shop had a completely different vibe from the Walgreens or Boots pharmacies I'm more familiar with, from what little I saw, muti seems to be more about dried roots and impala horns than anything more sinister.
