Cops flee from 'goblins' found in suitcase

Beware of the suitcase goblins ? Image Credit:
A bizarre report from Zimbabwe claims that two cops discovered 'goblins' while searching a suitcase.
According to the story, the peculiar incident began when businessman Sanderson Bloom Shamuyashe - who runs a grinding mill at the Lupote Business Center in Dete - was accused of being responsible for the deaths of several dogs that had ended up poisoned after venturing into his homestead.

Local villagers in the area were so incensed that they enlisted the help of two police officers who confiscated his suitcase and decided to open it to look for evidence of poison supplies.

When they opened it however, they discovered a number of 'goblins' inside which terrified them so much that they turned tails and fled as fast as they could.

"They were shocked when they saw strange beings which they believed were goblins and were seen running for their dear lives," a source told B-Metro.

Apparently this isn't the first time Shamuyashe has been accused of strange activities either.
"Most recently he was seen by villagers digging a grave of a relative of his wife," the source said.

"He fled from the scene leaving his shoes which were used as exhibit and the issue was taken to Chief Nelukoba and after a full trial the chief ordered him to leave the area but he denied vehemently that he was the one who was seen desecrating a grave."

"He (Shamuyashe) said the chief should enlist the services of witch-hunters popularly known as tsikamutandas to come and sniff out the witch saying if tsikamutandas catch someone else he would take the villagers and the chief to task."

The strange report highlights just how much supernatural beliefs and supersitition still endure in Zimbabwe.

Suffice to say, this is one story that's worth taking with a very large pinch of salt indeed.

I was referring to the fact US cops wouldn't flee. They would be to busy shooting the "goblins." I believe the topic headline was changed and had no nation attached to it when I responded. Something like "Cops flee from Goblins."

 “There is no goblin that they saw, I even advised village head Simanyayi, former councillor, my father-in-law and other villagers to enlist the services of tsikamutandas to root out such goblins. I told them that if they fail to root out such invisible things they have to give me a beast.”   Lol. I imagine he’s going to win that bet.

Given the numbers of "witches", and such, that are regularly charged and executed in areas of Africa, id imagine finding evidence of "goblins" actually will be pretty easy. After all the "good" evidence the cops saw goblins was that one left shoes behind when they ran away. A cow/goat of a neighbor goes dry.... "Aha! Goblins!!"... Then bring out the bag of Big Rocks, time to punish a sorcerer....

Goblins in a suitcase. I remember seeing that in a movie, maybe it is taken from that movie.

The house owner denies having any goblins and wants his name cleared. A witch doctor could prove there was never any such creatures! More: Coast to Coast goblins terrify cops

(Sighs) This is EXACTLY what happens when you have a society ruled by superstition, fairy tales and mythology.

It's amazing that in this day and age that grown men employed as law enforcement would actually return to the source of employment and state that goblins foiled their raid.  This is modern day insanity.
