By James Gwati-A Chimanimani prophet, has failed to capture a snake which is being used by two elderly women in suspected witchcraft activities.
One of the two elderly friends – Gogo Savie Nenohwe and Gogo Ethel Sithole was spotted by a 12-year-old girl breastfeeding a snake while uttering names of fellow villagers whom she wanted the reptile to deal with.
The girl reported the case to Chief Mutambara who then requested a local prophet to capture the snake.
Madzimai Mukono, on Monday, visited Gogo Sithole’s residents on a mission to capture the snake but could not make it.
“We went to Gogo Sithole’s homestead to capture the snake on Monday but failed to do so as a multitude had gathered to witness the drama. We will go back later this week and we hope to succeed in our mission.
“After capturing the snake, we will bring it to the chief’s court,” said Madzimai Mukono.
