Traditional Healer Fails To Resurrect Dead Boy

Exorcism Gone Wrong As Sangoma Beat Client To Death:

A cleansing ceremony went wrong after a sangoma beat his client to death. The youthful self-styled traditional healer testified that he was attacking the goblins which were causing his client’s misfortunes.

According to a local publication iHarare  26-year-old Isaac Tete of Athens Compound, Chinhoyi has since been arrested and charged with the murder of his client Vunganai Munyengedzi. He appeared before Chinhoyi provincial magistrate Melody Rwizi to answer to the charges of killing his client.

The magistrate granted Tete $10 000 bail and remanded him to 1 April.

The court learnt that after being approached for a consultation, the sangoma told Munyengedzi that he should undergo a healing and cleansing ceremony to get rid of the goblins which he claimed were bringing misfortune to him.

The cleansing ceremony was carried out between January 9 and 11 at Long Valley Plots, Murereka in Lions Den. The court heard that at some point during the ceremony, Tete picked up a log and started beating up Munyengedzi claiming that he was attacking the evil goblins. Munyengedzi sustained serious injuries during the ferocious attack on the goblins.

The injuries were so severe that he was transported to the Chinhyoi Provincial Hospital where he was admitted. Unfortunately, Munyengedzi died later on that day from the injuries sustained during the cleansing ceremony.

The youthful Sangoma then disappeared and was only arrested on January 21 and he is being represented by Joshua Mangeyi’s law firm.
