A wizard crashed-landed in Choma while mysteriously ‘flying’ to the tourist capital, Livingstone on a suspected witchcraft cruise.
The Copperbelt-based wizard was said to have been flying from Kalulushi town to Livingstone in Southern Province before he crashed-landed.He was discovered making snake like movements in the premises of United Church of Zambia (UCZ) in Shampande Township where he fell down in the early hours of Monday.
When word went round of the bizarre occurence, scores of residents while gripped in fear and panic, jostled to the scene to catch a glimpse of the man.Police rushed to the scene to rescue the mystified 22-year-old man whose body was said to have been deeply tattooed.
The man earlier told the inquisitive on-lookers that he was allegedly initiated into Satanism by his colleagues and was flying from Kalulushi to Livingstone.Police have since identified him as Chilufya Makungu of House Number 1A15 Nkana in Kalulushi.
Southern Province Police deputy police chief Bonnie Kapeso also confirmed the bizarre in an interview.Mr Kapeso said Mr Makungu was discovered by a UCZ caretaker, Lita Hamalambo, who found him manifesting like a snake in the church premises.
“The suspect (Mr Makungu) says he was in the company of five others mysteriously flying to Livingstone for satanic mission but later fell down,” he said.
Mr Kapeso said that police found the man in a confused state which suggested that he could have crashed-landed.He said that police are holding him for further investigation into the bizarre matter.
The UCZ pastor could not be reached by press time as he was reported to have travelled out of Choma.
