Chief Fortune Charumbira says Mujuru’s ‘witchcraft’ causing drought.
|Chiefs’ Council, Chief Fortune Charumbira has claimed former
Vice-President Joyce Mujuru witchcraft allegations are causing drought
in the country.
Charumbira, who does not hide his loyalty to Zanu PF, claimed that the gods were angered by Mujuru’s alleged plot to oust Mugabe, hence the erratic and poor rains this farming season, NewsDay reported.
“Masvingo yakaona nhamo neGamatox (Masvingo was in trouble with the Mujuru faction), even among the rank and file of chiefs. You were supposed to go to Beatrice first (where Mujuru has a farm), otherwise you would not get a farm,” he claimed to the bewilderment of most people present.
“Mafaction ange ofamba achiroya masikati machena (Factions were practising witchcraft in daylight). They wanted to take President Robert Mugabe’s throne, that is why we did not get good rains this year and there is a drought. By flushing out Gamatox (faction), the country has now been cleansed,” Charumbira said.
