A twenty-eight year old Kadoma woman laid an egg last Thursday in a suspected act of witchcraft.

Police said the woman experienced the misfortune following warnings from her estranged husband that she would lay an egg everyday as punishment for having caused his arrest following a domestic dispute.

Mashonaland West police spokesperson, Inspector Clemence Mabweazara said the woman’s husband who is out of custody on bail called his wife on the 22nd of this month and told her that she would lay an egg daily should he be jailed.

Police said the woman is keeping the egg in a lunchbox in her home until she seeks assistance from traditional and spiritual healers.
