ZIMRE Park neighborhood, 20km east of Harare, is gripped by the mysterious death of an infant while being administered some traditional healing rituals by an elderly woman, who then buried the baby in less than an hour.
Police have since been roped in to quiz the self-styled prophetess and her husband for allegedly being involved in the mysterious death of the infant and trying to conceal the matter.
The State-owned ZBC TV reports that there has been an alleged attempt to conceal the mysterious death by the couple who call themselves spiritual healers.
The report, whose video we share below, says the now deceased infant is suspected to have died during some traditional ritual allegedly at the hands of its maternal grandparent who also doubles as a faith healer.
“We didn’t know, zvakaitwa mukusaziva,” the granny tells ZBC crew. “We thought we could just bury the baby as they do in the rural areas. However, police told us that we were supposed to follow due process.”
The lady’s husband, who is said to be an accomplice, is employed as a security guard at a local school.
Neighbours who witnessed the horrifying event say suspicions were raised after the couple was seen leaving their place of residence under the cover of darkness for the alleged burial. The burial took place at around 5am at a date that hasn’t been revealed.
The baby was buried in a shallow grave close to a nearby stream.
