In a video that circulated on social media platforms and recorded at am Epworth cemetery, the man claimed that he had the authority to exhume the bones but the crowd gathered around him and threatened to beat the living daylights out of him.

Last year, a Gweru resident was caught red handed, digging up a grave saying he had instructions to do so from a sangoma.

Samson Mudzingwa of Mtapa, who worked as a Gweru city council undertaker consulted a sangoma, who told him to select a grave of his choice at Mtapa cemetry and rob it.

The busted Mudzingwa insisted that he meant no harm by digging up the dead, and was arrested and taken to court. ■
