Six Matesva siblings and their family on Friday appeared before Acting Chief Saunyama’s court claiming that they are still virgins as they were all married off to some jealousy goblin ‘spouses’ that sexually terrorise them and do not allow them to get intimate.

The siblings from Nyanga aged between 30 and 56 years claim that whenever they try to get intimate with anyone, they become weak and feel disgusted by the other party.

The six alleged that they have become a laughing stock as they were all married off to some goblins by their father, Amos Matesva, and his brother Nesbert.

Getrude, Evelina, Isaac, Moses, Chrispen and Dennis Matesva were fuming when they appeared in court and later at traditional healer, Sekuru Shingirayi Mukotsanjera’s shrine.

Isaac, who is in his 50s, said despite being white haired, has never been with a woman as he feels disgusted each time he gets close to a woman whom he is not related to.

“I do not know how it feels to be with a woman because I have never been with one. I want to get married and have children of my own. If you look at me, I am old enough to be a grandfather but I do not even have a girlfriend.

“The goblins terrorise me and make me feel like I am sleeping with a woman every night but when I wake up, women disgust me. I have talked to my father and uncle but they say that they cannot return the goblins as the traditional healer they consulted back then is long dead,” he said.

Moses said while his wish is to get married, he doubts that will ever happen as the goblins are very demanding sexually.

“Our private parts are useless when we try to get intimate with women. They are only useful in pleasuring the goblins because those are the wives that our father and uncle married us to.

“I have tried to get intimate with a woman but I am useless in bed, nothing works down there and I have lost all hope of ever finding love. Imagine getting into bed with a woman and coming out as a laughing stock,” he said.

Crispen said his sisters are also being sexually abused by the goblins.

“Look at our sisters, as beautiful as they are, they are all sex pets to the goblins, no man wants them. Just like we are disgusted by women, our sisters also disgust men. We know no wives, husbands or children in our family,” said Crispen.

Evelina, who is in her 40s, said she and her sisters breastfeed baboons and monkeys as well as have sex with them in their dreams.

The siblings have reportedly assaulted their father and uncle over the matter.

Sekuru Amos Matesva, the father of the six, confirmed that his goblins are terrorising his children.

He, however, said a recent attempt to hand back the goblins hit a dead end after he was informed that the late traditional healer he consulted long back left an instruction for his family not to take back any goblins.

Sekuru Matesva, who is in his 80s, said traditional healer Sekuru Mutseura, who is now late, helped him to protect his homestead spiritually.

He claimed that he was given some paraphernalia that later turned out to be goblins.

“When I was given these things, I did not know that they were goblins. I was only told later on after my children started being terrorised sexually by these goblins and I threw them away,” he said.

However, the goblins worsened their sexual torments after that.

“I was then advised to go and pay Sekuru Mutseura for his services and tell him that I no longer needed the goblins. However, when I got there, he was already dead and his family refused to accept the payment saying they had been instructed not to. I no longer know what to do as l also need my children to get married. I also want to play with my grandchildren,” he said.

Acting Chief Saunyama referred the family to traditional healer, Sekuru Mukotsanjera.

Sekuru Mukotsanjera advised the family to go to the late Sekuru Mutseura’s homestead and hand over a thank you fee for the services ‘provided’ by the goblins.

“Only then can your children be freed. Do not approach them and act as if you are returning the goblins, that will not work. Thank them for the goblins and you will be free of the goblins,” he said.
