A dead body of an 18 year old Chimwemwe Mwenelupembe shocked villagers around Nkhatabay private secondary school in the northern region after producing urine, sweating heavily as well as shading tears.

According to a report posted at, villagers were confused with the boy’s sudden death and accused his grandfather, Duncan Mwenelupembe for bewitching him.

But drama ensued on the burial ceremony, as angry villagers and grave diggers removed the dead body from the coffin and threatened to bury the suspected man in the coffin, according to the report.

The grandfather is reported to have bolted and the following day, the villagers and grave diggers denied vehemently to bury the body arguing that the village headman should do so accusing him of keeping the suspect in hiding as well as condoning acts of witchcraft.

The burial ceremony was however conducted with the help of religious leaders and a handful of students from the school which the deceased was doing his studies.

The grandfather was reported at large.
