Yes, it’s Zimbabwe again, the only place I’ve seen where goblins regularly terrorize schools.
Villagers say strange occurrences have been ongoing since the early 90s when Mr Moyo joined the school but things got worse last year when the goblins’ antics turned to sexual abuse.
VILLAGERS in Dongamuzi area under Chief Gumede in Lupane are demanding the transfer of Ekuphakameni Secondary School headmaster Mr Peter Moyo, whom they accuse of owning goblins that have been terrorising pupils and teaching staff at the school.
Female teachers at the school claimed that during the night they would dream making love to someone and woke up the next morning with signs that they would have actually had sex during the night.
Some male teachers also claimed that they woke up every morning wearing female panties whose origin they did not know.
A cleansing ceremony dubbed Wafawafa, was held at the school on 5 March this year by the International Healers’ Association, during which the villagers say Mr Moyo was exposed after an assortment of paraphernalia associated with witchcraft was recovered from his bedroom.
A traditional healer and chairperson of Zimbabwe National Traditional Healers Association (Zinatha) in Dongamuzi’s Ward One, Gogo Tabitha Ndebele, who led the cleansing ceremony, confirmed having conducted the cleansing ceremony.
She said the strange items recovered from the headmaster’s house were the ones that would turn into human-like creatures at night and terrorise teaching staff at the school.
What is going on here? We can’t say but there is a profound sense of superstition and distrust. I suppose they feel that just moving him away is the answer for them. I can think of half a dozen reasons why the relationship with the headmaster went bad without invoking “goblins”.
We’ve had several stories in the past regarding goblins causing trouble. Having a goblin in Zimbabwe is illegal (I’m not joking) so I wonder why he isn’t arrested. You know what, nevermind.
