A RUSAPE family’s murder secret of seven years recently came out in the open as the avenging spirit of a slain teacher is now giving them a torrid time.
The Maziofa family of Masvosva Village under Chief Chiduku are begging for forgiveness from the Chigweses after one of them was abducted in the presence of school pupils seven years ago.
Edward Maziofa is alleged to have teamed up with Patrick Mupfekeri (now late) to kill Bernard Chigwese in cold blood following a botched cattle selling deal.
The two men allegedly performed some rituals on Chigwese’s body.
However, the Maziofas have now revealed that they have been having sleepless nights as Chigwese’s spirit is allegedly tormenting them, with some members developing mental illnesses and experiencing bad omens.
Last month, the avenging spirit struck hard when Francis Maziofa committed suicide by hanging from a tree branch in Makoni Country Club Golf Course. Francis’ father, Mekia allegedly played a key role in shielding Edward from facing justice for Chigwese’s murder.
Mupfekeri and Maziofa allegedly abducted Chigwese at Masvosva Primary School and dragged him to a nearby bush where they fatally assaulted him.
They allegedly dumped his body in a nearby bush with a bottle containing unknown substances and a candle on his body.
His body was discovered the following day by fellow villagers.- Manica Post
