Female health workers at Bushinga Rural Health Centre in neighbouring Zambia have threatened to flee the institution because of alleged witchcraft practices that have subjected them to having sex with witches and wizards at night.

Ward Councilor Boyd Musangu confirmed the development to ZANIS, saying that he has since called for a meeting to sensitize people in the area.

He said that he has received numerous reports involving wizards having sex with health workers at night and the office of the District Commissioner has also been informed.

The civic leader said the victims are made to fall in a deep sleep using witchcraft and later the witches sleep with them.

“They complain that at night witches sleep with them and then mark them with tattoos on their private parts,” Mr. Musangu said.

The civic leader stated that this practice was against Christian values and a sin against the victims.

“I’ m worried that if such practices continue, government workers will leave the institution and the majority of people will not have the much needed health services which have been brought at their door steps,” Mr. Musangu said.

He pointed out that according to Zambian laws practicing witchcraft was illegal and punishable.

Mr Musangu further said that the practice is also against human rights to which Zambia is signatory.

In 2014, School girls at Kabanga School in the same area were reportedly witnessing short weird men who caused them to collapse.

The situation caused tensions between the teachers and communities such that teachers threatened to leave the place and the incidence caused absenteeism among pupils.
