A goblin, which is said to have claimed the lives of five people from the same family, has been seized by a man of cloth in Chitungwiza before being burnt in front of a sizeable crowd.
Much to the amusement of Unit O residents in Seke, Chitungwiza and in a style reminiscent of a fisherman struggling with a big catch, Prophet Simabi Dongo clutched on to a blood oozing goblin which he allegedly the cause of five deaths in a family.
“This thing does not belong to the Magaya family, but was sent to cause havoc in their family,” said Dongo.
After losing their family members, Mr and Mrs Magaya decided to seek spiritual intervention.
In a movie style, Dongo had to remove his shirt and showed people his hands had nothing before charging at the goblin which was in a hip of clothes.
He then started wrestling with the horn-like looking creature.
Although the government of Zimbabwe does not recognise the existence of witchcraft, the majority of people believe otherwise.
