A 37-year-old man, Thomas Simani, residing in Mt Hampden, Harare, who dated married women finds himself in distress as a mysterious skin disease takes hold of his body. The beleaguered man believes that his condition is a consequence of his involvement with married women.
Simani, currently living in agony, has developed a peculiar skin disease characterized by a thick layer of sores that intermittently fall off, accompanied by dust emanating from his body upon touch. Disturbing images shared on social media by Kwayedza depict Simani’s head covered in sores, with his hair barely visible and his skin turning as white as snow.
The mysterious ailment has disrupted Thomas Simani’s daily life, hindering his ability to interact with others. Individuals nearby report a pungent smell, making it unbearable to be near him. The condition has led Simani to believe that it is more than a physical ailment; he attributes it to spiritual causes.
Simani attributes the onset of his condition to his romantic entanglements with five married women. He believes that the use of juju (traditional African magic) by one of these women’s husbands has resulted in his current predicament. Whether Simani has sought medical assistance remains undisclosed, and his conviction in the spiritual nature of his ailment raises questions about the course of action he should take.
Social media is abuzz with speculations regarding Simani’s situation. Many believe that he might have been involved with a woman whose husband resorted to traditional medicine to “lock” her fidelity. Such occurrences are not uncommon in Zimbabwe, where individuals sometimes turn to juju to ensure their partners remain faithful.
