Police in Zvishavane, Zimbabwe, say they are holding a man after he was allegedly caught using mubobobo on a woman at a busy bus terminus on Tuesday. Clifford Mavete (27), is accused of using black magic through which it is claimed a man can have sex with a woman without physical contact.
Superintendent Robert Mugazambi, the deputy officer commanding Zvishavane and Mberengwa districts, said Mavete was likely to be charged with public indecency. Mavete was seen "sweating and exhibiting an expression synonymous with that of a person engaging in sex while his eyes were glued at the woman who was standing in front of him."
Some rank marshals at the Mandava Long Distance Bus Terminus became suspicious "after noticing the man's movements" and confronted him. A witness said: "That's when the victim, a middle-aged woman, came out of her trance-like state and told the people who had gathered that she was having some unusual funny feelings in her private parts."
A second shock awaited the woman - she discovered her underwear had vanished. It was pulled out of a plastic bag carried by Mavete, it is claimed. Witnesses described some marshals slapping Mavete before he was handed over to police. Superintendent Mugazambi said: "The suspect is in police custody after he was brought by members of the public who allegedly caught him using mubobobo at Mandava terminus."
