A Grade Nine pupil at a named school in Nakonde district in Northern province yesterday woke up to a rude shock, when she discovered her private parts had changed into male genitals.
Both MMD Mulalo Ward Councilor, Luka Simusamba, and the girl confirmed the development in an interview with ZANIS in Nakonde today.
Mr Simusamba said the girl of Ntantumbila village in Mulalo Ward discovered yesterday morning during bathing that her genitals had changed into male organs.
Mr Simusamba explained that the girl was then rushed to a traditional healer for possible treatment after her parents and the village headman were informed about the development.
He said people of Ntantumbila and surrounding areas have received the news with great shock and suspect the development to be an act of evil spirits.
Some elderly people talked to in the area said such occurrences were common especially among people who indulge in sexual relations with married people.
By press time, the condition of the girl, who denied any involvement in sexual activities with married men, had remained the same.
