    BIKITA – A 19-year-old Bikita woman, Sarah Chikunguru has told a Bikita magistrate that she has a snake given to her by her neighbour which she keeps around her waist.
    Chikunguru claims that she was given this snake together with a cat and a goblin by her neighbour Alice Maoneke. She was fined $20 or 10 days in prison for making the accusations of witchcraft against her neighbour.
    Chikunguru of Village 18 under Chief Ziki who was dragged to court by Maoneke for accusing her of witchcraft said this in self defense when she appeared before Magistrate Caroline Tafira.
    She told Tafira that she wanted Maoneke to take back her snake and this is why she went to her place and told her that she was a witch.
    It is the State case that on February 1, 2019 Chikunguru went to Maoneke’s homestead and ordered her to remove the snake she gave to her. She said she was given a snake, a cat and a goblin by the complainant Maoneke and she was told to kill her mother.
    Chikunguru told the court that no one else sees the snake except herself.
    Chamunorwa Honye prosecuted.
