Most women across Mzansi were celebrated and made to feel love on National Women’s Day.

But a Limpopo woman,  Glory Chauke, was sad and worried.

Chauke (37) from Masia outside Vuwani claimed she was accused by the local Induna of being a witch.

The trouble began when her husband become mentally disturbed and his family blamed her for it.

"I was shocked to see the local Induna come to my house. He summoned me to the Tribal Authority offices, and when I arrived there I was told to vacate my eight roomed house and leave the area because I’m a witch," said Gloria. 

Chauke said she was saddened by husband's sickness and being instructed to vacate her house added to her miseries.

She reported the matter to the Vuwani cops but no one was willing to help.

Fearing for her life, she left the area to stay with a relative in Bungeni.

The local Induna Taduleni Mashau denied all allegations, when approached for a comment.

Provincial police spokesman Brigadier Motlafela Mojapelo promised to investigate why cops refused to help Chauke.

He said no one should be refused to open a case. 

Commission for Gender Inequality Jabu Baloyi promised to assist Gloria to open a case.
