A Gwanda family is reportedly living in fear after an invisible creature attacked them with stones.
Miss Portia Zhou narrated her ordeal to ZBC News and said her family is gripped by fear as the attacks sometimes become rampant and violent. She said:
It has been happening for a while now, stones are thrown on the roof. At first, we thought it was thieves or someone making fun of us until now when the stones have become rampant that we even get these attacks during the day.
We called our neighbors and they searched where the stones were coming from, they did not see anyone but stones kept coming, we are worried.
ZBC News reports that neighbors confirmed to have also received their fair share of attacks for providing the tormented family with refuge.
When our neighbor came to tell us, we thought it’s a joke until a huge pebble missed my leg. I am in a state of shock. I am leaving the house to sleep at my sister-in-law’s place.
Another resident also claimed to have seen the stones and is convinced it is the work of dark and invisible forces. Said the resident:
I came to look for whoever was attacking them, but I and my other guys we just saw stones being thrown, but we didn’t see the person throwing them. These are goblins I tell you.
Last year, the Gwanda community roped in a popular prophet in a bid to address the issue of an invisible creature that was reportedly killing men at Mtshabezi River.
Nevertheless, stories of mysterious creatures tormenting families have throughout history been dismissed as mere superstition.
