Prophet blames 'goblins' for spate of 10 deaths

The surviving members of a family in Nyanga, Zimbabwe claim to have been tormented by malevolent spirits.
This fascinating yet unsettling story, which demonstrates the extent to which witchcraft beliefs still influence the lives of people living in certain regions of southern Africa, concerns the plight of the Nzvenga family whose members have allegedly been dying under mysterious circumstances.

Desperate for a solution, the surviving members reportedly sought the assistance of Madzibaba Shepherd Nzira - a respected local prophet who leads a shrine in the local area.

"Family members have [been] dying mysteriously until we established that there was witchcraft in the family," said Francis Nzvenga. "We could not figure out who exactly was behind the death of about 10 family members and then engaged Madzibaba Nzira, who exposed the culprit."

During his investigation, Nzira reportedly discovered several items of witchcraft paraphernalia including a clay pot filled with blood and a knobkerrie (a type of club) tied with a hyena tail.
"People who appeared on a list in the clay pot were bound to die in the near future," he said. "I prayed first, and summoned the goblins to expose themselves. The family will not be haunted again."

While this might all sound rather far-fetched, the family at least seems happy with the outcome.

"We are happy that Madzibaba Nzira got to the bottom of the mystery and fished out the culprit," said Nzvenga. "We hope the cleansing rituals will eradicate our problems."

Without knowing the specific circumstances surrounding the deaths of the family members however, it is impossible to know for sure what really happened.

I wonder what he charged them. Whatever, it's got to be a good prophet margin.

HOLD UP! How old is this story? He is a dead rapist.  Robert Mugabe!   Says it all really. Let me correct this: He is a dead corrupt rapist.
