CHIVHU - With stock theft cases hitting critical levels in the country, juju has been seen as the most suitable alternative to deal with such cases by Cecelia Nhema, a villager in Chipisa area, Chikomba district who says she will use it to get her stolen goats back.
Nhema publicly told vendors at one of the vegetable and fruit market in Chivhu town that she will resort to the use of juju in order to deal with the alleged culprit whom she says is one of her relatives who reside in the same village with her.
"I'm Cecelia, l will deal with him (suspect) accordingly and he will bring them back very soon. I know the suspect and I feel pity for him because I will teach him a lesson," said Nhema.
Vendors gathered around her and pleaded with her to make a police report but she insisted that she will not report the theft to the police.
"I don't want my cases to be handled by the police. I will use juju to deal with him. I'm better than the police and I'm tired of people who mess around with my life," Nhema said boastfully.
A relative to Nhema who preferred anonymity confirmed the case of the theft issue saying the goats were stolen during the night a few days ago.
He described his grandmother as a serious woman who can do whatever it takes to recover her lost property and to punish her offenders when wronged.
"Two goats were stolen a week ago and Gogo is a serious person who can deal with the case on her on but as for me, I don't have any suspects," said the relative.news
