Holy Spirit catches 2 Zim witches

by Chris-Paul



Two Zimbabwean women were caught red-handed during witchcraft mission in a small mining town of Chinhoyi about 120km west of Harare.
The woman, Eneresi Mufunga, whom they wanted to bewitch, is a devout Christian who said she was woken up by the Holy Spirit when the two naked witches came around 04h00 two weeks ago.
Mufunga, 55, said she keeps “holy water” which she sprinkled around her house when she heard that there were witches around.
On the day in question, Mufunga said she sprinkled the ‘holy water’ and then saw a naked frame of a woman crawling out of the door of her bedroom on all fours.
The woman later stood up and “appeared tongue-tied”.
Mufunga said she then heard screams metres away, coming from a grass and pole bathroom. When she investigated, she found a second woman, also stark naked.
Police were called and they arrested Rosemary Kamanga, 48, and Esnath Maodza, 56, who have since appeared in court after they both admitted practising witchcraft.
The two women also face charges of indecent exposure.
Kamanga and Maodza told investigators they had fallen off a winnowing basket (rusero) while returning from the neighbouring community of Alaska Mine.
“They confessed to being witches and indicated they were coming from Alaska in a rusero, and decided to get some human flesh at Mufunga’s house,” said Inspector Clemence Mabgweazara, spokesman for Mashonaland West police.
The discovery of the women sparked frenzied scenes as neighbours rushed to Mufunga’s home, some threatening to kill the two women who were still in a state of undress.
Witnesses said the two women’s husbands arrived on the scene and whisked them to safety.
 “Their husbands confirmed having missed their wives early on Monday,” Inspector Mabgweazara said.
The women were later arrested and taken to Murereka Police Post, then transferred to Chinhoyi Central Police Station where they have attracted dozens of curious locals.
