There was chaos in Sedze Village, Nyanga after a woman and her 2-year-old nephew were caught stark n_aked at a neighbor’s homestead.
The incident reportedly occurred last Saturday during the night.
Mavis Nyambuya and her two-year-old nephew reportedly ran out of luck after their would-be victim, Memory Mahowa woke up in the middle of the night.
Nyambuya and Mahowa are neighbors.
It is alleged that Mahowa had sought the assistance of self-proclaimed Mutare-based spiritual healer, Madzibaba Stephen Nzira after her children started experiencing weird things.
Her intention was to protect her homestead from witches.
Madzibaba Nzira confirmed the incident and told The Weekender that Mahowa sought his services.
“They visited my shrine sometime this year seeking my assistance after they had encountered some spiritual problems. It was a clear case of witchcraft. I did not disclose to them that their neighbour was behind these strange happenings.”
Neighbors and villagers reportedly rushed to the homestead after Nyambuya screamed for help.
The neighbors demanded instant justice. Luckily, the police’s swift reaction saved her.
A recorded video of Nyambuya begging for forgiveness and crying while seated on the ground with the young girl has gone viral on social media platforms, the publication reports.
Villagers expressed their concerns on Nyambuya’s move to recruit a young child into the diabolical world of witchcraft.
Acting Chief Saunyama, said although he was yet to get finer details of the matter, he would summon Nyambuya to his court.
According to Acting Chief Saunyama, if Nyambuya is found guilty, she is expected to pay a fine of not less than three beasts and also faces banishment from the area.
