Malawian traditional healers' trial date set

HARARE - Malawian traditional healers who tricked a Chinhoyi businesswoman into giving them $32 000 in the hope of getting back her lost lover will stand trial on November 24.

Chibagali Bagga Kalumbi, 35, and Nasir Stizz Namampatiwa, 34 appeared before Harare magistrate Sharon Rakafa charged with fraud.

The woman identified as Joyline Munduna is a miner in Kensamba, Chinhoyi and was convinced by the traditional healers that they would facilitate for her to join them in their business of supplying anointing oil to Prophetic Healing and Deliverance Ministries founder Walter Magaya.

Prosecutor Progress Maringamoyo, alleged that sometime in January this year, the accused persons placed an advert in a local newspaper claiming they were capable of assisting people in bringing back lost lovers, boosting businesses and healing complex ailments.

Munduna responded to the advert by contacting the mobile phone number that was provided which belonged to Joseph Kaunda who is still at large.

The two later met in Waterfalls, before proceeding to a house in Parktown where they were joined by Kalumbi and Namampatiwa.

She was made to pay $50 consultation fee and advised to return the following day because ancestral spirits would only be consulted at midnight.

The following day, Munduna went back and was told that she needed to go through a cleansing ritual because she had been dumped by her boyfriend on account of evil spirits.

Munduna paid $1 200 and two goats before being advised that the money and goats would be thrown into a flowing river as part of the rituals.

The court heard that the following day Munduna went to Manyame River with the traditional healers and was ordered to remain in the car while they purportedly went to throw the money and the goats into the river.

After two weeks Munduna was advised to bring four cattle which would be burnt to complete the ritual.

She brought the cattle and was later told that they had been burnt and that the ashes were deposited into Manyame River as a token of sacrifice.

The accused persons realised that Munduna was easy prey and told her that they were also running a brisk business of supplying anointing water and oil to Magaya.

Munduna contributed $30 000 towards the business after the accused persons claimed that each of them had paid the same amount.

After two weeks, Munduna went to see the traditional healers at their usual place but they were nowhere to be found. She tried to call them on their mobile phone numbers to no avail.

She later bumped into Kalumbi and Namampatiwa at Southerton Shopping Centre, resulting in their arrest.
