A Zimbabwean clinic has been closed down after nurses refused turning up for duty following complaint of ‘invisible creatures raping them.’
The bizarre incident occurred at Shale Clinic in Umzingwane district, Matabeleland South. The mysterious creatures which are suspected to be tikoloshes, are also allegedly wreaking havoc at a nearby primary school where they are reportedly sexually molesting teachers.
Teachers have also threatened to join the nurses in desertation of duty if nothing is done about the situation.
One of the villagers, Themba Moyo who confirmed the incident told ZimLive;
“The clinic is closed because two female nurses and a male health technician ran away after complaining that they were being sexually abused.
“They woke up moist in their privates with signs that they had sexual intercourse. This was happening at night. At the moment, there’s just a janitor and nurse aide who live in the community.”
Another villager who spoke on condition of anonymity, said;
“There were two nurses and a health technician. They initially started complaining about being tired when reporting for duty in the morning and were claiming that they were not having restful nights.
“They then opened up and explained what was happening at the clinic. The male health technician had a torrid time one night with the creatures pulling his penis and testicles. He struggled walking in the morning as his privates were swollen. His wife had a miscarriage recently, and we believe this could be linked to the tikoloshe issue. They left as they could not stand the abuse anymore.”
The villager also spoke about how teachers at Shale Primary School were being tormented by the tikoloshes.
He added , “The tikoloshes have sex with females, and men wake up with swollen privates. Sometimes female teachers wake up sleeping outside their rooms, with their food mysteriously eaten.”
At an emergency meeting convened by the villagers, it was agreed that prophets or traditional leaders will be hired. The villagers who suspect tikoloshes of being behind the reign of terror, also resolved to banish the owner of the tikoloshes once they are unmasked.
Moyo told the publication that a prophet from an apostolic sect from Rusape carried out a cleansing ceremony and he identified a local politician as the owner of the supernatural creatures.
The villager said,
“There was shock all around when our local Zanu PF councillor was pointed out as the owner of the tikoloshes. She was quite upset and took the matter to the police who arrested the prophets.
“The prophets were later fined US$20 each at Esigodini and released.”
It was however learnt that a local traditional healer, headman Nkala dismissed the cleansing ceremony conducted, saying that the traditional leaders are looking to secure the services of “genuine” prophets.
