A VILLAGE headman in Kapiri Mposhi’s Kakulu area nabamuchita get out (removed from her position) over allegations that she practices witchcraft.
The traditional leader, identified as headwoman Sanzombo, was almost banned from the village by angry subjects before striping her off the head-womanship on allegations that she is practicing witchcraft.
The said woman is said to have approached one of her subjects, George Kalunga, and told him to choose between giving her K1, 000 which she would later pay back or be bewitched if he dared refuse to give her the said money.
Kalunga is said to have taken the statement from the headwoman as a joke and never gave her the money but before the chickens came home to roost, his legs started swelling and this angered the villagers.
The villagers brought a witchdoctor to the area to find out who was behind Kalunga’s sickness and that the village headwoman was fingered in the mischief.
When confronted, the headwoman accepted responsibility and the irate villagers demanded that she be removed from her position and be banished from the village but she pleaded that she should be allowed to continue staying in the same village as she had nowhere to go.
