Teachers at the Nashongo and Makaba primary schools in Siavonga, Zambia have threatened to abandon their posts after a rash of indecent incidents involving invisible witches.
According to Chief Sinadambwe of the Tonga-speaking people, the saucy sorcerers have been projecting their spirits into the teachers' bedrooms and molesting them.
Chief Sinadambwe told the Zambia Daily Mail: 'The male teachers complained that they have been having sex with women they cannot see. This has been happening to them for about three weeks.'
Chief Sinadambwe says that similar incidents have been happening to the women, one of whom claims that she went to sleep and when she woke up found herself naked with her nightgown on the floor.
But the Chief says not to panic – he's urged everyone to stay calm and "called on Government to help resolve the matter." His leadership has certainly been reasonable.
The fear of incubi and succubi was also once common in Europe.
According to Wikipedia an incubus (nominal form constructed from the Latin verb, incubo, incubare, or "to lie upon") is a demon in male form who, according to a number of mythological and legendary traditions, lies upon sleepers, especially women, in order to have sexual intercourse with them. Its female counterpart is the succubus.
Back in May, the Mbala District Commissioner also felt compelled to ask local "wizards" to stop molesting teachers and pupils at Chipoka Primary School – the second of such incidents in nine years.
An elderly Zambian couple was accused of black magic, beaten and burned to death.
