Mutare villagers march against Mabhinya killers. A member of Mugodhi Apostolic Church John Muponda went missing on Monday last week and family and church mates found his remains dumped partially decayed at Makuti Farm in Vumba on Saturday. A church member suspects that he was murdered.
A mob of angry Mutare villagers last week filled Chitakatira Police Base demanding the police to take action against the increasing numbers of ritual killing of people in their area. Many people are being killed in the area and their body parts are being harvested for ritual use.
“John was someone close to me. It’s so sad that he is no more. I am here out of anger. Why they are killing others like chickens,” said the congregant. Among the protesters was the village Headman Simon Chigodora who described the situation in the area as a very weird one.
“We have not come here to damage police property. We just want to express our worries. Most of these people have relatives and friends killed by those criminals. More than three people were killed at the end of August. The Chigodora community needs police attention,”
Manicaland provincial police spokesperson Assistance Inspector Luxson Chananda confirmed the rise in cases of murders to TellZim saying the authorities have all hands on deck and are working hard to end the rampant killings.
