According to a Likhubula School official speaking on condition of anonymity, 14 students had fainted one after the other whereby causing panic and forcing School officials to end classes.

“We have a few students who faint and most of the times when this happens we take them to the office for first aid treatment. However, today’s case was unusual as there were a large number of cases that we have never seen before,” said the school official.

He said after receiving the alarming cases, they called a nearby police unit for help.

“Luckily, the police came and provided us with transportation. We drove the students to hospital where they have been treated. As I am speaking, everybody is fine, the situation is calm and we are looking forward to resuming classes tomorrow,” he narrated.

However, he said they are under pressure from concerned parents and other individuals inquiring what exactly had happened.

“Until now we also don’t know how this happened. Even hospital officials are simply describing it as a case of  fainting,” he disclosed.

Ironically, all the 14 students are in standard 8.

Mmm.. Satanic yachululuka Some Prayers are needed. Call men of to lay hands on every person at the school.

2016 welcome
This has nothing to do, in some ways, with satanic. Chances are high that they might have left their homes without breakfast hence low glucose level to the brain. Again most of those affected we hear are in standard 8 and very likely most of them are adolescents. It is a common phenomenon among adolescents to mimic fainting when they see a colleague going through such an episode. This phenomenon is, in psychology, called contagion. Ask psychologist like Chioza Bandawe and Eric Umar. They will shed more light on contagion.

I heard this case some 2 or 3 months ago in some primary schools in Mulanje district. Some pupils say they saw a very big snake infront of then. I think there is something fishy going on in this district of mine (SATANIC). It’s my pledge to all Malawians to pray for this district because the most worisome is that it affects our future leaders.

Class 8
