Later, he claims to be the rightful chief of the Kibalas due to his amazing powers. He waves his hand over a canvas (previously treated by Porter to create a photographic print) and causes the image of the idol to appear. Terry exposes Kafir as sighted by threatening him with a spear which causes the fraud to flinch.
