Renco Mine - Clemence Mahachi from Chiponda Village in Nyajena last week left community members speechless after he allegedly dragged, tied and laid his aunt, Agnes Mauya, on top of his father's grave and ordered her to resurrect him.
The matter was reported to Renco Mine police camp but the suspect had not been arrested by the time of writing because he had reportedly fled the area.
As a result of the alleged assault, Mauya sustained an injured arm and a swollen face while her daughter was hit by a machete on the forehead when she tried to intervene on behalf of her mother.
She was taken to Nyajena Hospital for treatment while her daughter, identified as Fortunate, was transferred to Morgenster Hospital.
Witnesses said Mahachi dragged Mauya to his father's grave where he reportedly assaulted her for 'bewitching and killing his father'.
Mahachi is also said to have blamed Mauya for his separation from his wife saying the aunt had used witchcraft to create misunderstandings in his family.
Mahachi's father was reportedly found dead in a football pitch at Muchibwa Primary school last year after a beer drink at Muchibwa Council beer hall.local
