Villagers were left dumbfounded when they woke up in the morning, only to realise that their dead baby whom they had buried the previous day had been exhumed from the grave.
He reportedly acknowledged to be the culprit behind the spine-chilling incident. The man is said to have revealed that he wanted to use the dead baby's body for ritual purposes in a bid to strengthen his farming business. The incident comes barely a couple of days after another corpse mysteriously got its hair shaved just before burial. Two elderly women are said to have come out of the closet in court where they confessed to have shaved the corpse's hair. They allegedly revealed that they sought to sell the dead man's hair to traditional healers.
The alleged man who exhumed the grave of a baby who had just been buried said he wanted to use the corpse to enhance his farming business.
When the matter was brought before the chief villagers court, by the deceased family members with the hair exhibit as evidence, Chief Matsiwo fined the two women for the crime they committed.
He also warned villagers in the area against engaging in 'get rich quick' schemes as that is the major way of initiating one into the witchcraft world.
