A woman has left villagers in shock after she allegedly gave birth to a frog.According to B-metro, a GOKWE man believes his wife was bewitched hence giving birth to a “frog-like” creature.Garikai Maphosa’s wife Tafadzwa Dumani’s sudden labour pains caught them off guard amounting to more questions than answers.
“It was on Monday night when she complained of labour pains and I said we would go to the clinic the following day.
The pains got severe in the morning so I called a neighbour who’s a midwife to assist,”said Maphosa.When he came with the midwife, Gertrude Sibanda, they were shocked to find Dumani had already given birth to a dead frog-like creature.“I was shocked, confused and scared at the same time. For sometime I stood there motionless hoping I would wake up from a bad dream,”said Maphosa.
They wrapped the dead “frog” and rushed her to hospital because she was bleeding profusely. Dumani is recuperating but Maphosa has been busy looking for answers.“I consulted a traditional healer Sekuru Jongwe who said it was a result of witchcraft,”hesaid adding that his wife was consulting the healer for treatment.
B Metro sought Sekuru Jongwe for an explanation.“Witches usually send their goblins to sleep with their targets and that is the reason why sometimes people give birth to scary creatures. I have dealt with a lot of cases similar tothis one,”he said.However, Dr Milton Chemhuru, a public health specialist said that it was impossible for humans to give birth to frogs.
