Sleeping at night has become a luxury for a Bulawayo's Cowdry Park family as they are reportedly waking up every morning naked despite having slept wearing clothes.

Sources said the Kazembe family has been experiencing sleepless nights since October last year. The source alleged that the spate of incidents was linked to the forces of the underworld. he said it all started after a family member reportedly killed a friend in Tsholotsho.

"I think it should be that because it started just after the guy was killed by one of the family members. It must be the dead man's spirit that's now revenging," said the source.

The father of the family- Noel Kazembe - in an interview with a local weekly, said at times they spend nights sitting waiting to see what was going to happen.

"I do not know what to do anymore. We sleep wearing clothes and find clothes thrown outside the house," he said.

Kazembe who is a member of an apostolic sect said prayers have failed to free his family from the torment.

"I have done all you can think of in terms of prayers but nothing has happened. I took up the issue with my church elders and they tried to help but to no avail. Even a senior prophet came to my house and prayed but we woke up naked the following morning," he said.

The man went on to give a graphic description of the family's ordeal.

"We go to bed without hassles but at around 1am we hear weird sounds but when we try to rise we find ourselves failing to move, as if we have been tied to the bed. I don't know what happens afterwards but we wake up naked in the morning," said the man.

A mother to the family revealed that the whole family once slept in one bedroom because of fear.

"Our children are old but we were left with no choice and we shared the bedroom with them. They were saying they couldn't sleep in their rooms," she said.

Kazembe said he was contemplating seeking traditional help.

"I have a grandfather who is a sangoma so I guess I will be forced to seek his help if prayers continue to fail me," he said.

Kazembe however, refuted claims that the matter could be linked to his brother who murdered a friend.

"Why would that person's spirit come here? It's nonsensical to think like that," fumed the man who mysteriously wakes up naked.
