Nurses at Tsholotsho District Hospital in Matabeleland North province are reportedly being terrorised by suspected goblins which are allegedly stealing their food and underwear before dumping them in any of the rooms occupied by the victims.
The mysterious beings are also reportedly making strange noises at night and disturb couples whenever they want to be intimate. The strange happenings reportedly started last month are continuing.
There are also complaints from the victims that on some days they wake up after they felt that they were being pulled from their ears by those invisible things and this has prompted them to go to bed with their lights and radios turned on.
An official who requested anonymity told B-Metro that a spiritualist from Binga once came and conducted a cleansing ceremony to try to get to the bottom of the issue. Said the source:
A sangoma from Binga once came and conducted a cleansing ceremony but the torment only stopped for about a week before it started again.
The latest incident is that of a 10-year-old boy who was haunted by those mysterious creatures.
During the torment, the boy was crying while claiming that he was seeing a short and bold creature like a man.
Tsholotsho District Medical Officer Dr Mbonisi Nyathi confirmed having received reports of the strange happenings at the hospital. He said:
About last week only a single household that had three occupants were complaining about some funny things that were happening so we sent a team to inquire and among themselves, they thought of those things called goblins and they assured us that they will fix the problem within two days.
From what we heard, they fixed it and fortunately enough they (suspected goblins) were not terrorising other households except theirs.
So, the last time I heard is that they had resolved it in an internal manner and I don’t know how it stands as of now but I’m hoping that whatever it is be it games or goblins I’m just hoping that it doesn’t taint our name.- B-Metro
