A Mudzi teenager claims to have killed 20 people using witchcraft.
The 17-year-old girl confessed that she has been surviving on human blood. According to the young girl, she was trained to be a witch by her 60-year-old aunt who had been taking care of her since childhood.
"I grew up with my aunt and she pushed me to be a witch where she would force me to drink blood every day in a maize granary. Every evening I would drink blood before we visited people at night," narrated the self-confessed witch.
The teenager indicated that she started this horrific life when she was in Grade Five.
"I started this when I was in Grade Five and during the night we would visit many people. I would be told to curse any people whilst I'm standing by his or her doorstep. My aunt would be behind me and the following day they would die or fall sick. During the night I will be wearing a black cloth and my aunt will be naked. I killed 20 people in the process and if I were be to infuriated by anyone, that person would shortly die or fall sick," she revealed.
At one point the girl was assaulted by an angry mob who caught her during one of her sessions.
"One day I was beaten by a mob when I was caught red handed bewitching someone during the wee hours of the morning and they attacked me," she added.
According to the girl, she left her rural home for Harare to find a job where she met her deliverance.
"I came to Harare to find a job where I was employed as a domestic worker. My aunt placed a frog in my private parts and it was difficult for me to go to the toilet. I would eat a lot because the frog was eating my food and now I eat less. I don't know my parents and my aunt stayed with me until now. My aunt is now threatening to kill me through a voice stating that if I tell anyone about the witchcraft I will die," she said.
The 17-year-old girl claimed that she was saved when she went to Throne of Grace Ministries church in Zimre Park and she was delivered by one Prophet Tawanda Kajongwe.
"After deliverance I had some blood oozing from my privates and from there I was set free," she said.
According to the prophet, the girl was delivered after a prayer session.
"We started deliverance and she didn't know that she had a frog in her stomach. She could hear voices threatening to kill her if she was to expose everything she was taught," claimed Prophet Kajongwe.
The girl was in the company of the eye witnesses when she made the confessions to reporters.
