A small clay pot containing a paper inscribed with names of two people triggered pandemonium at Kuwadzana 5 primary school this morning.
The pot was discovered within the school grounds. The names of the school caretaker and one of the teachers were written on the piece of paper. Fear and uncertainty swept through the school as word spread of the clay pot discovery.
Many were convinced this was juju targeted at the pair.
Lessons were suspended for two hours as teachers gathered in the staff room pondering the next move. Teachers believe the juju pot is part of a wider battle for the control of the school. They are frightened by the bizarre turn of events and sought direction from the school head.
It is not known what happened to the clay pot at this stage. No comment could be obtained from the school authorities.
Of late, there has been an increase on reports of incidences of witchcraft and satanism in Zimbabwe. zbc
