Bulawayo — A 62-YEAR-OLD Gokwe man has come out in the open and claimed ownership of a goblin which has been terrorising women in his village by taking off their panties at night while they were asleep.
Chief Njelele had invited the traditional healer commonly known as a tsikamutanda from Hwange District and the prophet in a bid to bring "peace" to his area after 26 women woke up recently and found themselves without panties. Chief Njelele had sought clearance from the police to have his area "cleansed" following the bizarre incident.
Mr Ncube, who became the 25th villager to appear before the tsikamutanda and the prophet, then confessed that he owned the "menacing" goblin, which he claimed to have acquired long ago to enhance his luck.
Mr Ncube told the puzzled crowd that the goblin had, however, turned "hostile and weird" to a point of going around sleeping with women. A police officer who had been invited to the occasion to maintain order at one time moved in to restore order after some villagers whose wives fell victim to the goblin's "sex" escapades threatened to beat up Mr Ncube.
The n'anga, who was accompanied by six aides, was forced with his team to temporarily stop the witch hunting ceremony as they accompanied Mr Ncube to his homestead to "capture" the goblin which shared a bedroom with one of Mr Ncube's sons.
There was more drama as the villagers jostled to have a glimpse of the decorated goblin after the tsikamutanda brought it before the crowd. The goblin, which looked like a living creature, was wearing a pair of blue female panties, which village head Charisekera's wife, Ms Silvia Marumbe, claimed to be hers.
The goblin was later burnt before the crowd.
He said different n'angas he consulted told him that the goblin was now "weird" as it was going around homesteads looking for women to "make love" to.
"As it is I did not know that this goblin has been taking away the villagers' panties until today. What I only knew was that the goblin was at my home, but we were no longer on good terms," said Mr Ncube who at that point looked down in shame.
I really, really, agree with you. It seems, however, that the authorities, at least at the village level, have stamped a "Case Closed" on this. Problems ahead.
However, I hope the matter is taken seriously by the authorities. Seems there might be a burgeoning serial rapist in the making.

This is the funniest thing I've read since yesterday, when I read that Tulsa, Oklahoma wants to make a bid to host a future Olympic games (yes, I really read that!).
Goodness, a story this crazy being reported as straight news? It's like an Onion article, but apparently supposedly real. Is it? Could this be a joke?
