Matabeleland School Shuts Down After Chikwambo Wreaks Havoc
Goblins have reportedly wreaked havoc school in Lupane, Matabeleland North Province causing it to shut down, leaving teachers and hundreds of pupils stranded.
The stubborn creatures have resisted efforts by traditionalists, religious leaders, education authorities and parents to exorcise them from Luhumbe Primary School in ward 21 under Chief Mabhikwa.
According to reports by the Daily News, the school has been suffering recurrent attacks from the goblins since 2008.
Speaking during the launch of the Churches Convergence on Peace (CCOP), Zimbabwe Christian Alliance’s Matabeleland North provincial administrator Siyaphambili Moyo said CCOP – a consortium of faith-based organisations – is now at the forefront of bringing all stakeholders together to address the problem.
“Our teachers have suffered sleepless nights because of the goblins that have terrorised the school. “The goblins make noise from 12pm till 5am. They scratch windows and doors, get inside and sleep in the beds causing much fear.
“Sometimes, the teachers wake up with swollen faces and painful bodies,” said Moyo. “The problem started in 2008, cooled down a bit and started again in 2012 and 2017.
“We had some Zion churches who descended at the school in 2017 to do some cleansing rituals and for a while everything appeared to have gone back to normal but surprisingly last month, the problem started”.
Parents in the community revealed that the goblins forced male and female teachers to sleep in one room. The teachers were later evacuated to Lupane Business Centre where they are now staying at the ministry of Education premises.
