Up to 200 students have fled from an army base in South Africa after a recent bout of mass hysteria.
The students had been participating in the National Rural Youth Service Corps at an army base in Kimberley when hundreds of them started to flee within days of arriving following a series of strange incidents. Some reported sightings of a snake that was said to keep attacking people while others had become terrified by reports of random students losing consciousness for no apparent reason. Another claim centered around an alleged witch who was said to have poisoned the food in the canteen.
"Hundreds of us have seen and experienced supernatural events taking place at the military base," said one student. "Some have seen a snake that keeps on terrorizing us, while others have lost consciousness for unexplained reasons. We have told officials about the events but they have done nothing to allay our fears."
"Mass hysteria among hundreds of young students participating in the National Rural Youth Service Corps (Narysec) saw them fleeing the 3SAI Army Base and seeking refuge at the Roodepan police station."
