Detailed information has emerged that George Mpombo’ son was asked by a witchdoctor to provide a head of human being as part of his juju to pass grade twelve exams with distinctions.
Sources close to the case have explained to the Watchdog that
Mpombo junior is a grade 12 pupil at Chiwala Boys.
‘Apparently he was told by some fake traditional witchdoctor in Lusaka that if he needed to pass his Grade 12 exams with flying colours this year, he needed to give the Witchdoctor a head of a human being,’ the source said.
‘So when the girl came claiming that she was pregnant, the boy decided to “use the opportunity” and get the head he needed to give the witch Dr!!
‘After murdering the young lady( who apparently was a 1st student at Kitwe teacher training college), he cut off the head, packed it in a plastic bag and stuffed it in a school bag!
‘He then walked with the head from Chiwala around 19 hours upto town alone’, the source explained.
His mission, says the source, was to jump on a Lusaka bound bus to give the head to the witch sangoma so that he passes his exams.
‘He asked his innocent relatives for a K1000, including his father for transport money but they all refused.
‘Stranded with the head, he decided to abort the journey and dumped the head in a rubbish bin at Mulungushi main bus station in Ndola Central business District, opposite Shoprite.
‘The boy also cut off the hands of the girl,’ according to the source.
