Drama As Mwonzora In Witchcraft Scare At Parliament After Finding “Juju”
MDC Secretary General Douglas Mwonzora has reported that some unknown people seem to be trying to intimidate him after they placed a suspicious liquid which is believed to be juju in his parliamentary pigeon hole on Tuesday. Mwonzora who is believed to be contemplating challenging Nelson Chamisa for the MDC Presidency reported the matter to the security at Parliament although he seemed unaffected by the incident saying he was unmoved.
Speaking to NewsDay, Mwonzora said,
I went to Parliament and I then decided to check my mail at the pigeon hole and there were two police officers in that room. As I approached my pigeon hole, I discovered that there was a plastic bottle with a strange-looking liquid and it was half full. I asked the police officers about it and they didn’t know who had put it there.
I then alerted the Parliament security, but I don’t know what they did with it. I didn’t touch it. Mwonzora said he does not feel threatened.
Whoever put it there either intended to threaten me with these superstitions, but it is strange that some people will find time to put that into my pigeon hole. I don’t know what the liquid is.
MDC vice presidential Mudzuri also commented on the matter saying,
I haven’t heard anything concerning that, but if he saw something suspicious, I hope he will get assistance to remove that. I hope there is no witch-hunting at Parliament. As parliamentarians, we are honourable members and we must not start looking for witchcraft. It is not proper, why should it happen?
