Clay pot that survived Chitungwiza blast finally removed


The clay pot that was mysteriously unaffected by the blast that claimed five lives in Chitungwiza on Monday afternoon has finally been removed.

The pot believed to have been used to create the ‘juju lightning’, was eventually removed by the father to the late sangoma Speakmore Mandere.

The father is Swirimu Mandere. The development came after passionate pleas by residents on Prophet Emmanuel Makandiwa to dispose of the clay-pot which seemed ‘too hot to touch’.


The pot was taken to Chiweshe yesterday, the sangoma’s landlord Oliver Dumba confirmed this development.

“Hari yakabviswa nababa vake nezvimwe zvinhu zvake vakaenda nazvo kuChiweshe (The pot was taken by his father among with other belongings and he took them to Chiweshe),” said Dumba.
