JUST imagine you suddenly discover that your manh0od frequently disappears and then reappears after a few minutes and after consulting an inyanga you are told it is your mother behind that.

This is the story of Sumayili Juma (34) from Kalima Village in Binga, Matabeleland North province who viciously axed his mother Josephine Njinjwe (67) to death.

According to a family member who declined to be named Juma whose life has been upside down reportedly consulted a prophet who revealed to him that his mother was the one behind the constant and mysterious disappearance of his manhood.

It is reported that this week on Monday while Njinjwe was sitting in the kitchen hut with other family members her son who has always been a headache to her suddenly got inside wielding an axe.

“He was very angry as he entered the kitchen hut and started accusing his mother of being a witch. He then accused her of bewitching him causing his manhood to disappear and reappear after a few minutes. He then axed her several times all over the body. She collapsed as she bled profusely and died on the spot,” said the family member.

After committing the callous act, Juma tried to run away but family members and their neighbours pursued him and managed to catch up with him.

“They tied him with a rope and took him to Kamativi Police Station leading to his arrest. He is set to appear in court facing a murder charge,” said the source close to investigations.

Matabeleland North police spokesperson Inspector Glory Banda confirmed the incident.

“We would like to urge community members to engage third parties like friends, relatives, pastors or police whenever they are faced with disputes rather than to resort to violence as it leads to unnecessary loss of life,” he said.
