Residents in Shawasha Block 7 C floor flat in Mbare got a shock when they woke up around 2am to find an undressed woman in their flat.
Apparently the doors were still locked. It is unclear how the woman gained entry, which has resulted in people labelling her a witch.
Witnesses claim that when the woman was asked why she was in that flat, she responded saying she was there to kill a 5-year-old who lives there.
It is alleged she had traveled from Epworth, a township on the outskirts of Harare.
It is not known whether she might have been suffering from some mental illness
