Cases of child kidnapping and subsequent murder for suspected ritual purposes have been on the rise in Zimbabwe lately.
Last year, the nation was shocked after a seven-year-old Murehwa boy, Tapiwa Makore was murdered for suspected ritual purposes.
Tapiwa’s remains were eventually buried in March this year with some of the body parts still missing.
Another case is of two seven-year-old siblings who were found dead in Nyanga following their disappearance after lessons at Saint Robert Mbaza Primary school.
Their bodies were found a day later with deep cuts on the necks and their uniforms were blood-stained but all their body parts were intact.
