Money Making Rituals Turn Deadly: 3 Men Killed By Traditional Healer

chivhu Police

The three men, Medio Kashiri, Petros Mwale and Antony Murombo Ndawana were discovered dead at Bata Farm in Bindura last week.

37-year-old Isaac Biningi, a self-styled traditional healer, has been arrested for the murders together with his accomplice Wilbert Vheremu.

According to the state’s case, Kashiri, Ndawana and Mwale approached the two sangomas seeking to procure some money making charms. The trio was advised to travel to Biningu’s homestead in Madziwa for some money making rituals.  

The Herald reports that on April 23, the trio travelled to Madziwa in Kashiri’s Honda CRV vehicle. The three are reported to have spent the night at Biningu’s homestead after being told to wait until the next day for the rituals.

On the morrow, Biningu invited the three into his consultation room where he is alleged to have sold them a sandawana (tokoloshe). After that was done,  Biningu and Vheremu took the three men through a series of money making rituals.

After the rituals were done, the two sangomas invited their clients to accompany them to Bata Farm. When they arrived there, Kashiri, Ndawana and Mwale were given opaque beer laced with poison.  

The sangomas are alleged to have given the three a concoction containing the plant Boophone disticha. The subtropical plant, which is known as mudzepete in vernacular, has analgesic and hallucinogenic properties. It is also used to make poison.

The sangomas then allegedly strangled the three to death, after they became incapacitated from the concoction and the poisoned opaque beer. According to the state, the two traditional healers then recovered their sandawana from their clients. They also stole an undisclosed sum of money from the three.

After the murders, the two sangomas went into hiding in Dotito. However, law enforcement officials were up to the task and managed to track and apprehend the traditional healers within days.  

However, while being transported from the village t Bndura Central POloice Station, Biningu attempted t escape from custody by jumping out of a moving vehicle while in handcuffs.

He appeared in court on a stretcher due to the injuries sustained in the escape attempt. He is facing charges of murder and escaping from lawful custody.

The two traditional healers were denied bail and remanded in custody to May 27 by provincial magistrate Mr Tinashe Ndokera.

Doctor and nurse suspended for having s*x in ward

sex 2

Patients who could not withstand the habitual s*xual intercourse between a doctor and a nurse amidst loud moaning in the ward have complained to the hospital’s management, leading to their suspension.

The incident happened at a hospital in Tabora, Tanzania.

According to reports, the two health workers were in the habit of ignoring the presence of their patients and having sex inside one of the facility’s wards.

A report by Mwananchi.co.tz said the patients in the ward had run out of restraint and could not withstand the steamy sessions between the trainee doctor the nurse, hence they complained to the hospital’s authorities.

Kaliua District Commissioner (DC) Paul Chacha held a meeting with health workers on Monday, November 29, during which he announced the suspension of the randy staff.

He disclosed that a disciplinary committee had already been set up to investigate the matter and its report will determine what further action to take against the doctor and the nurse.

He assured that the hospital will not shield the accused health workers if the committee’s report finds them culpable for the offence.

“If this person is an intern, the hospital should check on him and see how he is fairing on. Why leave him to do this? A negative report about him will be sent,” said Chacha as quoted by Tuko.co.ke.

The hospital in question is reported to have made news headlines following one of its doctors carrying out illegal abortions, so the latest development might further dent its image.

CRIME

A Zimbabwean woman is together with her minor child are suing a Chinese miner for burying her husband during a mine site rehabilitation last year.

Zimbabwe Lawyers for Human Rights who are representing the widow, Nester Munyongani and her son say the duo wants ZWL$2 from Xu Zhong Jin Investments.

Munyongani argues that the Chinese miner was told the deceased Sure Mutamba, an artisanal miner, was underground but Xu Zhong Jin Investments continued with the rehabilitation burying Mutamba in the process. Pindula News presents ZLHR’s update on the case:

At Mutasa Magistrates Court, Xu Zhong Jin Investments, a Chinese mining company is standing trial after being sued for damages by the widow & child of Sure Mutamba, an artisanal miner, who was buried alive in November 2020 as the Chinese miner was rehabilitating a mining site at Premier Estate in Old Mutare in Manicaland province.

The widow, Nester Munyongani & her 4-year-old minor child, who are represented by @ZLHRLawyers are suing Xu Zhong Jin Investments for ZWL2 million for negligently causing the death of Mutamba & for loss of support emanating from his death.

Mutamba’s body was only exhumed 3 days after he died following protests by community members over the inhumane operations of the Chinese miner.

In summons filed in court, lawyers stated that the Chinese miner had been advised that Mutamba was underground before its employees even closed the deep pit but they proceeded and closed the pit. Our intervention in this matter is meant to protect the rights of communities in conflict with big mining corporations.
