Man Axes 2-year-old Niece Accusing Relatives Of Bewitching Him

A 21-year-old man from Kadoma is on the run after axing his brother’s 2-year-old daughter to death following a dispute in which he accused his relatives of bewitching him. 

In a report seen by Pindula News, the Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) said Tryforcer Moy was drunk when he axed his niece. Reads the report:

Police in Chakari are appealing for information which may lead to the arrest of Tryforcer Moyo (21) who is wanted in connection with a case of murder where a minor (2) died whilst admitted at Kadoma General Hospital after she was struck once on the head with an axe on 16/09/22 at Delcia B1. The suspect who was drunk and violent accused some family members of bewitching him before attacking the victim who was his brother’s daughter.

Reported cases of domestic violence have been resulting in loss of life have been on the rise.

Authorities urge members of the public to resolve their disputes amicably.

Meanwhile, witchcraft is a common phenomenon in the African context with many blaming misfortunes on “witches” who they say would have cast spells on them.

Some approach traditional healers (n’anga/nyanga/Maine) or prophets to protect themselves from the “spells.”

Meanwhile, some believe that those blaming witchcraft will be delusional and can be healed if they get professional assistance from psychologists.

Maybe he was told that after consulting a prophet. That's why I don't go to these so called "prophets", the always tell you negative things. Hapana paunomboudzwa zvakanaka kana kumbonziwo "ndaona waita muchato, ndaona waita mari"
