A 26 year old Masvingo woman says she is in serious trouble with the ghosts of nine men who she allegedly killed from an apparent spell cast on her called Runyoka or ulunyoka.
Narrating her ordeal, Felistaus Jenje (26) said she believes that the spell was cast when her husband, who she customarily married in 2008, forced her to close an okapi knife he had opened while he was accusing her of being a prostitute. She is convinced that the knife was cursed and closing the okapi knife cast the runyoka spell on her.
Jenje alleges that her husband was abusive and three months after her husband allegedly cast the spell, he fled to South Africa with their two children. After being estranged for 3 years, Felistaus started dating other men
I have been [cursed with] runyoka and so far 9 men whom l have slept with died a few days after se_x, vomiting blood and excessive diarrhoea.”“The nine men are making my life miserable as they are coming as ghosts, l no longer enjoy life,” she said.
Felistaus says the ghosts ask her why she killed them and to shut them out, she if forced to drink alcohol everyday and has been to several traditional healers.Jenje alleges that her husband was abusive and he came at her with an Okapi knife on the day he put runyoka on her after accusing her of prostitution.
