Knickers are being nicked in the Gokwe District town of Njelele. The perpetrator(s) of the crime has led several women to find themselves awaking in the nude.
Gokwe police have received reports of women's knickers being nicked while the women were sleeping. That led to the women of course waking up nude, and wondering who stole their panties. Gokwe District police in Zimbabwe are reported by the New Zimbabwe to have begun an investigation into the women's panties theft.
The local traditional leader, Chief Njelele, in Njelele Village, is spearheading the investigation, with the aid of local traditional solutions, to the outrageous action of a person or persons unknown at this time.
Chief Njelele has asked the authorities for permission to perform a witch hunt to seek out the perpetrators of the crime.
Twenty six women have complained of being accosted in this incident, while asleep.
The panties in question were found in a heap in Njelele Village. “After we reported the matter to the police at Gokwe Police Station, 17 women from Pauro and Charusekera positively identified their garments in the presence of the police,” the chief said.
The chief offered as an excuse for the reason of nine pairs being left unidentified as: “The remaining panties have not been identified maybe because of their state."
That would indicate that what our mothers always told us about wearing clean undies was in fact a good idea.
Self-styled prophets who are known locally as tsikamutandas are being invited to help in the witch hunt, the person or persons who are responsible face expulsion from the village or fines for the errant behavior.
