ZVISHAVANE – A village head under Chief Shiku last week approached the Zvishavane magistrate court seeking a peace order against his brothers whom he claimed were in the habit of accusing him of witchcraft.
Ruka Mudzingwa, who is the Mudzingwa village head, made an application for Lazarus Gavhu, Owen Gavhu and Learnmore Gavhu to be barred from giving him a hard time.
Magistrate Peter Madiba granted the peace order barring the respondents from visiting and communicating with the applicant in whatever way.
Mudzingwa had applied to have the respondents forbidden from abusing him in any way and he wanted the court to ban the respondents from communicating with him by whatever means.
The respondents, however, claimed that they had so far consulted nine prophets who all pointed to Mudzingwa being the one behind acts of witchcraft in the family. They claimed that Mudzingwa had a clay pot half-filled with blood and had the names of family members written in it.
They also alleged the complaint had a 'missile' which he used to kill people.
Mudzingwa said although prophets were consulted concerning the witchcraft allegations, he had chosen never to talk about that issue again or consult prophets over the same issue.
'It is true that we consulted nine prophets but one of the prophets told us that he had removed everything related to witchcraft in my homestead. I therefore see no reason of consulting other prophets on something that was removed a long time ago," said Mudzingwa.news
