‘Witchcraft’ tears family apart

A Harare woman was granted a peace order after she approached the civil court accusing her in-laws of abducting her husband, threatening to assault her and accusing her of being a witch.


Clara Mandendera of Hopley appeared before magistrate Lazini Ncube accusing her husband’s brothers Levison Madzinga and Lenard Mugiro of abducting her husband.

“My husband is sick and they came and took him away, I don’t know why they did that,” she said.

Mandendera also claimed that Madzinga and Mugiro accuse her of practicing witchcraft, which led to the sickness of her husband. She also accused Madzinga and Mugiro of selling her husband’s cattle without his permission.

Madzinga was opposed to Mandendera’s application accusing her of telling lies. Mugiro also accused his brother’s wife of spreading lies.
