Two Malawi women seeking ‘Khuzumule’ love charm arrested for graveyard trespass

Malawi police in Chikwawa district are keeping in custody two women for allegedly trespassing on a graveyard and attempted to exhume bones of a day-old baby to be used for charms.

Manjolo: The suspects will be taken to court

Manjolo: The suspects will be taken to court

Police arrested Maureen Francis,29 and 30 year-old Mercy Fonex both from Thobwa village,T/A Ngabu in the district.

The two, according to the law-enforcers, wanted to use the exhumed bones for a charm called Khuzumule.

Khuzumule is a charm that women use to keep their errant husbands in check. Apparently, under its effect, men stop cheating and find themselves spending more time with their partners.

National police Press and Public Relations Officer, Rhoda Manjolo told Nyasa Times the two were arrested after one of the villagers spotted them in the graveyard.

”On 18 November, 2015 at around 12am one of the villagers saw the suspects in the graveyard tampering with a tomb, and when they noticed that they have been seen, the suspects ran away,” explained Manjolo.

Manjolo added: ”The villager reported the matter to the village headman Thobwa who, together with some villagers, rushed to the said graveyard where they found a day-old baby’s tomb tampered with”.

Fonex and Francis revealed to the law-enforcers during interrogation that they wanted to use the bones for khuzumule.

The two are expected to be charged with Trespassing and Tampering in the Graveyard under Section 189 and 129 of the Penal Code.

    It’s high time we realise that ‘LOVE’ is a noble obligation that God had given to man; a woman’s responsibility is to listen to what man has said, full stop. Lero tikuona akazi akufuna azikonda amuna awo m’malo momvera. Kodi Abusa podalitsa maukwati akumbutsa kangati kuti; Amuna inu kondani akazi a inu nokha monga Kristu anakondera Eklesia, Chomwenso Akazi inu Mverani Amuna a i nu nokha monga Eklesia anamvera Kristu. Nanganso pakufunika khuzumule apa kwa mkazi omvera? Mwamaliza a buluzi kuwadula michira ndikuwadyetsa amuna anu zakukanikani, lero mufuna muwadyetse maliro a mwana wodzidzira.

    Good sex does not mean a settled partner rather two people loving each other. Love based on sex produces a sex maniac who will pounce on anything in skirt believing it will be better there when he himself fails miserably in bed. Most of the time men who are impotent are the most randy.

    This is more to do with witchcraft beliefs. Khuzumule vibe is just a scapegoat. Akungothawira pa khuzumule ndi mfiti zimenezo zipaneni zikuuzani zenizeni zomwe amafuna kupanga.

  35. nachisale says:

    Men will stop cheating when we have educated and economically Independent women who will leave or divorce them (the men) when they cheat. Men cheat because they have more economic power. The only way to deal with this is girls to be educated so that instead of looking for khuzumile you pack your bags and leave the man.

  36. The Most Concerned says:

    If indeed the dead bones were meant for love portion, r u trying 2 tel me that these ladies wanted to feed their husbands with stuff from the dead body? Chinekeee!!!!

  37. Munthuwamba says:

    You do not necessarily need Khuzumule to tame wild husbands.If anything, there is something that you are not doing right in the bedroom that drives away these men into the hands of other women. Sit down with your husbands, have a heart to heart talk and ask them what it is that they want in the bedroom. Trust me, things will get better if you have a frank discussion. As for you husbands, be open with your wives and tell them exactly how you want the meal to be served. Is it sitting down, standing up or otherwise?? Openness is the way to go. To gentlemen and ladies I would advise you to be wild and engage your wildest fantasies in the bedroom and have fun then be ladies and gentlemen outside of it.

    After commonwealth meeting Gertrude Mutharika should come back home, in UK and South Africa she has nothing to do there, it will just be a waste of tax payers money. You want savings, please do the needful by showing leadership

  41. Biz says:

    A wise woman will always keep her husband at home. When a man sees an opposite member of sex their mind goes wandering. Others can restrain themselves but the majority goes to explore. Women know that men are like that and some choose to dress provocatively and this provokes the men desires to cheat. Married women should know that the competition is tough out their and they got to raise the game and use wisdom. First of all ask God for wisdom and guidance on how to be a good wife. No matter how successful you are as a wife, respect and be submissive. Men love sex, and good sex. As a wife you can change your husbands mind set by doing these simple things. But you got to change your mind set too. Another thing azimai kulongolora, paranoia, always wanting to check his phone. If you are doing your job as a wife the majority of them who have a mind of a human being wont cheat. If you make a home to be a happy home a man will always heard straight home. Prostitutes will do anything for money. What stops you as wives, from being adventurous to your legally married man. Marriage is sweet if we all had to think positive about it. Wives you have the power and authority to push out prostitution by raising the game in marriage. If you want peace in your marriage, be prayerful, submissive and respect your man, make your house a home above all be positive.

  45. Team B special says:

    There is no truth in what these women are saying, nkhuzumule is not connected to dead people. I suspect tha , it (charm) meant for business related issues. Amafuna chizimba cha chuma awa kwacha yavuta pa Nyasaland.

  46. The Analyst says:

    Whoever is hired or whichever organisation is established to review Malawi laws is not doing their job well.

    . . . If am caught cutting down a tree at a graveyard, I will be accused of graveyard trespassing.
    . . . These low self esteemed ugly women are caught exhuming a dead body to for charms to beguile men into loving them, you accuse them of trespassing.
    . . . Those two guys who were caught exhuming an albino for want of bones n other parts were accused of trespassing, hence only ordered to pay 20 pin fine.

    Shouldn’t the type of crime one commits at the graveyard be used more in building up a case than just the mere fact that it was done at a graveyard? What if one kills another at a graveyard? Is this graveyard trespassing? Come on!

    Let us review our laws. We should know that sound laws are an integral part of a country’s development. And we seem to deliberate forget.

  53. Khemuche says:

    Tonde you are wrong. Most men simply don’t cheat by nature and not because they are old. The fact that some few men date many women at the same time, then it follows that more women are actually cheaters compared to men.

  54. ntha..... says:

    “As they have a fewer and erections” very interesting. Zoona tonde.

  56. mtumbuka1 says:

    In this life of technology we still have people who believe in this kind of crap like really?? There’s no such a thing as a bone of a dead person working. People must be civilized and live with the times and stop this behavior or body parts shit it’s just a fallacy and the same applies to those who chases after albinos with the hope of getting rich, stop this madness cos it’s a sin to. . God

  57. Tonde says:

    Koma umbuli abale. There is nothing any woman can do to prevent men from cheating. They stop cheating as they grow older and have fewer and fewer erections!
