Mali is the ancestral hub of Coven Witches in Vice City, led by Phil the Witch and promoted by Gethsemanee Starhawk Moonwaker. Mali is mentioned on the K-Chat radio talk show about witches. It has been theorized that in the past, witches have migrated to and forth from Mali to promote witchcraft and establish covens in Vice City. This remains possible, but lacks any textual evidence. Despite the fact that Mali is the central base of Vice City witchcraft, it's never seen in the game nor in a portrait or in a physical form, but is mentioned on the radio.
