From News 24:
Tzaneen - A 14-year-old schoolgirl has been accused of sparking a violent witch-hunt in her village when she said an old woman kept zombies in her house.

The girl, from Burghersdorp village near Tzaneen in Limpopo, appeared in the Ritavi magistrate's court on Monday on charges of contravening the Suppression of Witchcraft Act.

According to the State, the girl sparked a violent witch-hunt when she told a community meeting that an 80-year-old woman was keeping zombies at her house.
