Only in Zimbabwe or does this happen in any other country??Teachers at Nashongo and Makaba primary schools in Siavonga have threatened to abandon the schools for fear of witchcraft, Zambia. The teachers have packed their belongings in readiness for departure if the wizards and witches continue with their acts. Chief Sinadambwe of the Tonga-speaking people confirmed this yesterday.
The traditional leader said the teachers have complained of sleepless nights and bad dreams allegedly caused by wizards and witches.
“The male teachers complained that they have been having sex with women they cannot see. This has been happening to them for about three weeks,” he said. Chief Sinadambwe said the same incidents were being experienced by female teachers.
“I received a complaint from a female teacher of Makaba Primary School who told me what had happened to her on Friday.
“She said while sleeping next to her husband, an invisible man undressed her and had sex with her,” he said.
He said when she woke up, she found herself naked and her nightdress and underwear were on the floor.
Chief Sinadambwe said when the woman asked her husband if he had intercourse with her late in the night, he expressed ignorance. “The husband started wondering who could have done that to his wife,” he said.
The chief, however, advised the teachers to drop their intentions to leave the schools and assured them that the problem would be resolved.
Chief Sinadambwe called on Government to help resolve the matter.
