Boy goes into trance and leads family to grave of women killed in 2007

A 12-year-old boy went into a trance and led family members to a place where the remains of a mentally-challenged woman, who went missing for almost 15 years, were buried.

The deceased, Elizabeth Chidamuwa, went missing in 2007. Her remains were recovered from a shallow grave along a riverbank in the local village in Mutoko, but with the skull missing.

While in a trance, the boy revealed that the woman was killed by her husband and a fellow villager, and that the deceased’s head was given to a local businessman for ritual purposes.

According to the posssed boy, the killers then buried her remains on the riverbank in the same village.

It is alleged that Chidamuwa, then aged 36, went missing on February 9, 2007 in Nemurinda village, under Chief Chimoyo, where she was living with her husband, Simbai Janjanja.

The family members searched for her in vain. The deceased’s brother, Sauro, then filed a missing person report with the police.

It is reported that on September 19 this year, the 12-year-old boy, who is Janjanja’s son, fell into a trance and revealed that Chidamuwa was killed by her husband Janjanja and a local villager named as Machivi.

Janjanja died in 2019, while Machivi reportedly left the area.

The family recovered the remains and reburied them in Nemurinda village without informing the police.

The matter came to light after police were tipped off by villagers.

Mashonaland East provincial police spokesperson Inspector Simon Chazovachii yesterday confirmed the incident to the NewsDay.

“The matter is being investigated,” Chazovachii said.
