An elderly woman from Nkayi in Zimbabwe found herself in a sea of trouble after she confessed that she sells juju commonly known as mubobobowhich is used for “blue tooth” sex. This did not go down well with the woman in the community who wanted to mete out instant justice accusing the woman of enabling man to rape women.
According to local custom and folklore, mubobobo refers to black magic (juju) which allows a man to supposedly have sex with a woman from a distance, without her consent. It is metaphorically referred to as ‘blue tooth sex’ due to the fact that the victim and the perpetrator do not have to be in physical contact.
Local tabloid B-Metro reports that the woman, Laiza Ndlovu, from Mabhongwane Village, made the startling confession during a village cleansing ceremony. She revealed that she has been selling the mubobobo juju for just $5. iHarare understands that Ndlovu’s customers
“I smear this item (manhood like item) with muthi. I will then give the prepared muthi to a client. This muthi helps my clients to sleep with any woman of their choice… I have clients all over the country.”
Ndlovu was saved from being assaulted by the angry community by the village head, Cornelius Ndlovu, and some community members. Village Head, Cornelius Ndlovu confirmed the incident saying,
“I can confirm that my subject Laiza Ndlovu confessed to selling mubobobo. Tsikamutandas seized her tools of the trade and an item which looked like a man’s manhood. They burnt it while everyone was watching.”
