Pray he doesn’t eat you

As a wave of cannibalism hysteria stalks KwaZulu-Natal in South Africa, it’s comforting that the Mayor of Durban, Zandile Gumede, has stepped in with some words: “We need more and more prayers as a province. I’m told that in Inanda a lady went missing and was later found with both her eyes gouged out. Also, this thing of cannibalism is disturbing. We don’t know what’s going on so prayers are needed in the province. There has also been a media report that a man had bitten a woman and she turned and behaved like a man so that is why we need prayers.”
