A senior police officer at Mtapa confirmed that the women, said to be from, Lower Gweru, was handed over to the station by “an excited crowd” who but later released her as no one had reported her for any crime.

Meanwhile, the woman’s daughter, who only identified herself as Mai Gloria, said her mother was not a witch but had a history of mental illness.

“My mother had been mentally ill ever since she divorced from a polygamous relationship,” Mai Gloria said.

She added that her mother’s mental condition worsened when she discovered that her son had sold her house in Mtapa.
