A 16-year-old Bulawayo girl from Zimbabwe has confessed to being part of a satanic cult that allegedly drinks human blood and feeds on human flesh.
The girl left residents’ representatives and Councillor Collet Ndhlovu under whom Cowdray Park falls, dumb-founded as she gave out a list of 38 people including their addresses, which her cult had allegedly killed in the suburb.
She went on to mention about 60 people that she said she worked with. Included in the list were leaders of a big church in Cowdray Park. The girl also gave the address of a house she claimed had an underground room where corpses were kept for the Satanists to feed on.
Mr Stanley Kwashira, the organising secretary of the residents association in Cowdray Park, yesterday said he was still grappling with the “shock of the horror tale.”
“She came to my house with her mother and two members of the residents association in her area last week. She said she was recruited to the group by a 32-year-old man (name withheld), who was her boyfriend. I was ready to dismiss the tale as fabrication of an over-active teenage imagination when she started naming people who we knew had died in the suburb, accurately giving dates of death and addresses,” said a stunned Mr Kwashira.
He said the girl said she joined the group last year when she was 15 years old.
“She said she was in love with a man in the area and one day in June last year, she collapsed as she was going to the shops. She said two men, including the boyfriend, then took her to a house near the bus stop popularly known as the sign post. She said there is an underground room where she went through an initiation process, which included drinking human blood and eating the flesh of dead people,” said Mr Kwashira.
He said the girl revealed that there were about 60 Satanists in the suburb who used to meet at the house
