Goblin in Zimbabwe

Four schools in Southern Zimbabwe suspended lessons in early November 2013 after complaints that children were being attacked by goblins. "The whole school is being affected," said one headmaster. "We cannot continue operating under such conditions. When the attacks start, pupils run amok. They start screaming and panicking. Apparently this is not the first case that involving goblins, from 2012 until 2014 there are around over 10 cases reported in Zimbabwe.

On 2012, Sithole family at a Chisumbanje homestead in Zimbabwe believes goblins are the main cause of their recent misfortune. This case occurred in Chipinge South where people are occasionally being pelted with stones by unseen things which they believed to be goblins.

For the past two months, the Sithole family had to make do with stones being thrown at them, while soil is intermittently tossed into their pots by invisible assailants as they will be preparing food. However, things came to a boil early last week when three huts at the homestead as well as a house suddenly went up in smoke and the family now sleeps in the open, while the few belongings they managed to salvage from the raging fire are heaped outside.

Whenever one young male member of the family, Taso Sithole (16) entered each of the huts and as soon as he came out, that hut would unexpectedly go up in smoke and this happened on all the four structures that were burnt at the homestead. To make matters worse, efforts to put out the fire were rendered futile as the well at the homestead mysteriously ran dry, only for the well to automatically fill up to the brim with water soon after the huts had been razed.

On January 2014, a bizarre incident occurred on one police station in Africa involving goblin which they called it "Suitcase Goblin". At that time, a family from Nketa 7 suburb dumped its tenant’s “goblin” at the Tshabalala Police Station. The officer said a traditional healer who had come with the family opened the suitcase and a weird looking creature jumped out of a bottle that was filled with blood. And then, everyone panicking.

“No one told anyone it was time to run. One minute, the charge office was full, the next, it was empty. I think some people went out through the windows because we could not all have fitted through the door. Fat cops and slim cops all ran for their lives screaming,” said one of the cop.
