Strange occult-related happenings reportedly hit St Tereza Primary School in Liwonde in the district of Machinga disturbing classes in the process.
Confirming the development, one of the teachers at the school, Patrick Kagwale said first signs of the occult appeared to a standard six student (name withheld).
“As we were having our classes this morning, we noted some strange ‘things’ happening to one of the pupils who started shouting and mentioning names of other students”, said Kagwale.
Kagwale added that the others who got mentioned by the pupil later joined the first victim who started showing strange signs of what people at first believed was merely an illness.
He further said that the affected children were uttering some strange voices saying that they sleep under Shire River in the area then wake up as snakes.
In reaction to the problem, church leaders rushed to the school and sought divine intervention by holding prayers at the institution.
It is said the students were back to normal after an unceasing prayer time.
Last year, related scenes had happened at at Khumula Primary School in Mchesi, Lilongwe.
Some students had collapsed for no reason and also found meals in toilets and talismans in playgrounds.
