A Grade 6 teacher at Kamba primary school in Triangle (name withheld) is being accused of initiating his whole class and part of the school into Satanism at the Tongaat Hullets run institution.
This was revealed through a Police Memo that this publication is in possession of and it is stated that the general hand worker at the school is the one who made a police report.
It is alleged that the kids would frequently fall into a trance for almost two hours during the day and at night, and at that time when they get normal, they would confess that their school teacher would have brought a Python which then takes them to the sea.
The matter came to light after Jealous Masikati, a general hand at the school and a guardian to three of the affected students reported mysterious behaviour of the pupils at Triangle police station on Saturday last week.
Masikati told the police that three of his sister’s children who attended Grade 6 at the school were no longer attending school and acted in weird manners while at home.
One of the kids narrated to Police that the weird happenings started after her teacher asked her and her sisters to clean his house located in the school premise.
Mark of the beast
“During the cleaning process, we saw a big python under the sofa, puffing and panting, we rushed to notify the teacher, who instructed us to leave the reptile there”, the kid said.
It was also stated in the memo that the teacher of affected kids gave a marker to one of the pupils and they all started to frequently and mysteriously disappear from the school and going to the sea where they would meet other kids from the school and some super weird beings underwater.
The pupil listed nine other students during the police interrogation as victims of the sad tale.The kid also told Police that she had since stopped going to school after several attempts to do so she would see a big black animal blocking her way. She also said this started to happen after they refused or delayed to take orders from the super weird beings they met underwater, to kill their mothers.
“While we were underwater at the Sea, we were instructed to kill our mothers failure which we were not going to attend school”, the kid narrated.
Police said the deputy headmaster of the school Mr Simangaliso Hove confirmed that many children manifested at the school daily leading to some parents and officials from the company’s Loss Control department approaching his office.
“The matter was also reported to the Ministry of education and we are still waiting for a response,” Mr Hove told Police.
Asked for a comment by this publication, the deputy Headmaster neither confirmed nor denied the story.
“I was not at school for the past two weeks. I am currently in Zvishavane. I will comment on Monday once I get to the school,” Hove said.
“I am seeking assistance from faith healers after my three children stopped attending school fearing for their lives. I was called by the police where I was interviewed on this matter after my brother who is staying with the children had reported the matter. I am appealing for any spiritual healers to help my children”, said Evelyn Masikati, mother to the three most affected girls.
Many students at the school are no longer attending school in fear of the Grade 6 school teacher. Police have since advised responsible authorities to take action before the situation gets out of hand. Efforts to get hold of Chiredzi District Schools Inspector Petronella Nyangwe were fruitless.
