Mutare residents were left suspecting satanism and black magic after a couple on board a silver Toyota sedan dumped a seven-metre long python behind Mutare Motoring Club and sped off.

The reptile which was placed in a sack was covered with several red cloths

Initially, witnesses suspected that the couple might have dumped a baby and rushed to the scene to investigate.

They were left dumpfounded when they opened the sack and discovered the giant reptile and an assortment of witchcraft-related paraphernalia.

The snake was then dragged into the Central Business District by an unknown man with the mob in hot pursuit.

Business was literally brought to a standstill as people jostled to see the snake which was eventually taken to Mutare Central Police Station.

Officer Commanding Mutare Central Police Chief Supritendent Florence Marume said a 21-year-old woman has since been arrested over the case.

“We have arrested a suspect over the case and we are still investigating the matter,” she said.
