WORKERS at Kaoma’s Lunyati Primary School and a local clinic have threatened to abandon their posts due suspected witchcraft attacks on them and their families.
Lunyati Ward Councillor in Kaoma Central Constituency Manley Kwala said the continued harassment of teachers and health officers through suspected witchcraft acts had become a matter of serious concern to the local leadership.
Mr Kwala said officers at the two institutions had since threatened to leave their stations if the vice persisted.
He told ZANIS today, that officers at Lunyati Primary School and Health Post were being tormented at night in what is suspected to be acts of witchcraft adding that, one officer has since left the health post.
The civic leader further said that each time officers entered their homes to sleep at night, they suddenly found themselves sleeping outside, naked.
Other happenings included officers hearing footsteps and invisible people chatting and eating food in their houses.
One of the affected officers said that they had cooked Kapenta for super, only to find fish in the pots which they had not prepared the following day.
Mr Kwala feared that if the situation was left unchecked, it would negatively affect economic activities in the area.
He has also welcomed the idea of engaging a witch finder to clean up the places. –ZANIS
