Drama as N’anga flees angry Gokwe witches

There was drama at Gokwe’s Dzvoritsvo village when a Tsikamutanda ran for his dear life after two warring witches exchanged what has been alleged as “lightning bolts” in front of a gathering that was waiting for an exorcising session by the witch hunter.

The traditional healer who was hired by villagers to help them sniff out witches from the troubled village of Dzvoritsvo which is about seven kilometres from the newly conferred Gokwe town, had carried the initial stages of identifying the culprits, which was done successfully.

According to Danmore Kunguva, who was standing in for the village head at the ceremony, trouble started when the two accused witches, began pointing fingers at each other, for having caused the death of three people, who are said to be seen roaming at night several months after their burials.

“We started having strange situations here, of seeing people we buried long time ago, and sometimes running away from them when they try to talk to us. That is when we asked for the help from a traditional healer popularly known as Tsikamutanda,” said Kunguva.

Efforts to locate the traditional healer for comment were in vain, as he was said to be in a state of shock from what he experienced, and had fled into hiding.

The two old men who had agreed to surrender their tools of evil trade, started quarrelling before the official ceremony started, and their dispute spilled into the exorcising time, thereby causing an exchange of what witnesses claim were “lightning bolts” in a bid to expose their strength to one another.

According to village head Kunguva, the spark from the two lightning bolts that collided in front of the gathering villagers left everyone speechless, and scampering for cover, causing the Tsikamutanda to run for dear life.

“The spark from the bumping lightning bolts scared away the traditional healer, who fled from the scene, and has not returned since the weekend. We are now in a very difficult situation that needs to be solved without delay. We are now waiting for another consultation process with Chief Njelele so that we can chat the way forward, on the fate of the two warring families, and their future in our village, since villagers are now unsettled,” said Kunguva.

According to several villagers who refused to be named, Chief Njelele was last heard planning the expulsion of the two from the communal area, as their actions have caused alarm and fear in the area. Some witnesses say the Chief himself is in intense fear following the incident.

Efforts to get comment from Chief Njelele were fruitless at the time of going to press, as his mobile was continuously not reachable.
