In a case that seems stranger than fiction, a Zimbabwean woman is reported to have mysteriously lost her voice just moments before she was supposed to testify at the High Court.
The distraught woman could only sob and gesture as she hopelessly tried to explain what had happened to her. The mother was supposed to give testimony in the rape trial of her daughter.
The video of the mother wailing uncontrollably at the courts was shared by the lifestyle tabloid H-Metro. Unfortunately, due to her circumstances, she could not be interviewed to shed light on the particularities of her case and the testimony she was supposed to give.
Watch the video below,
At the time of publishing, it could not be established how the woman had lost her voice. It is also not clear how long the condition will last before she goes back to being normal.
However, many Zimbabweans expressed shock at the development and suggested that the mother may have been a victim of juju to stop her from testifying against the perpetrator.
Some also urged the courts to be flexible in such cases and to allow witnesses to enter written testimony if they are indisposed, like in this case.
Others, however, dismissed the video claiming that it was fake news from the publication.
This is very disturbing; the law must be flexible and let justice prevail, especially in this case!
Give her a pen paper she writes down her testimony.
If this is true, ka !!
