It is not a rumor anymore. It has been verified that the people of Zimbabwe are selling their toes in exchange for dollars to cussion the effect of hard economy in the country.

Toe Selling in Zimbabwe: Here is Why and What the Toes are Used for.



Zimbabwe is in the Southern Africa. Reports claimed that a company is offering huge amount in foreign currency to the citizens to cut off and sell their toes. According to the report, the company is paying the citizens the sum of $40,000 for the big toe while $25,000 is offered for the middle toe and $10,000 for the tiny toe.

“In Zimbabwe, people have started selling their toes for thousands of dollars. This is due to the high cost of living and the failure of the government to create jobs. The toes are being bought at $40,000 dollars (N16m) While the smaller ones are at $20,000 dollars (N8m),” Zikky reported on Twitter.

Another citizen who also claimed to be a journalist [@Tinoe_Edington] tweeted: “Just watched a video remface ane GD6 rake achikamhina asina chigunwe Harare yashata mmmm.”

Why are the Zimbabwes cutting off and selling their toes?

One simple fact I have gathered so far is that no one forces them to do so. It is a personal decision. They also said it is for money. The high cost of living in the country has forced the citizens to deviced the babaric means to earn a living and better their lives.

Since selling of their parts of the body pay better than any other job or work they can lay their hands on, they chose to tread the route.

What is the Company doing with the Toes they bought from the Zimbabwes?

The first thing that occured to my mind the first day I saw the post about the Zimbabwe selling and cutting off their toes was my country men and women. I told myself that if this is true and my country men gat to hear about it that our toes and that of our children are gone. But when I searched further, I found something that calmed my fear. I got to know that the practice has dos and donts.

Meanwhile, if you are among those that ask what company buys peoples toes, don’t be mislead, there is no such company. That is actually what I am here for. I mean, that is the essence of this post.

First of all, the toes are not sold to any company; it is a money ritual just “Oke ite Awele more money ritual” that is trending among the youth over here. People exchange their toes for money rituals.

Cutting and selling of toes for money in Zimbabwe is it true or false?

Many are still doubting and asking if the claim about toe cutting for money in Zimbabwe is true or a fabrication. It is not a fabrication, it is happening. According to a Zimbabwen online news media, POLICE have said they are investigating possible trafficking of human body parts, following reports that people are selling their toes in exchange for riches to people who use them for ritual purposes.



National Police spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi said they were investigating the claims of human body parts being sold. The reports read:

“Police are conducting investigations and we shall issue a comprehensive report in due course. The public must do things according to the laws of the country, especially when it comes to human body parts. That is why we are saying as the police we are monitoring the situation,” said Assistant Commissioner Nyathi.

He said those found soliciting, selling and buying human body parts will be arrested.

“The laws of the country are very clear, when it comes to the issue of health and body parts, in terms of movement. The selling of human body parts in the country is illegal, whether people are advertising, soliciting, offering in terms of the country’s law as espoused by the Criminal Law and Codification and Reform Act, Chapter 9:23 is very clear. Even the Constitution of the country is very clear in terms of human safety. Whoever is advertising or soliciting for human body parts for various reasons, they should be careful because they risk being arrested,” said Assistant Commissioner Nyathi.

The President of the Zimbabwe National Traditional Healers Association Mr George Kandiero has also reacted to this claim. He expressed shock and concern, said they were disturbed by reports of people selling their toes for ritual purposes.



“We are very concerned because some of these rumours then encroach onto our work. It then tarnishes the image of traditional practitioners, and it seems that we somehow know of these syndicates. If you hear of the amounts being spoken about, I don’t think there’s a single traditional healer to pay for toes at that amount,” said Mr Kandiero. He said the practice was dangerous and it affects future generations.

“It always been there, in Shona it’s called kuchekeresa, but we try to conscientise the public that it’s very bad and it has serious side effects that can affect future generations. This is because you are sacrificing your blood and your flesh and you don’t know what it will be used for. It definitely has some repercussions immediately as there are things that you are told to do and not to do, which you will eventually fail to do and it will have effects on your siblings and relatives,” said Mr Kandiero.

According to Mr Kandiero, it is called. It is Kuchekeresa is basically you sacrificing yourself, with parts of your body or your blood, or to take someone’s blood or someone’s organ to make rituals that then enrich you or make you have money, which you don’t work for. I told you initially that this is the Nigerian version of Yahoo Yahoo plus or the Oke ite Awele rituals. The difference here is you are sacrificing a visible part of your body to make you rich.

The chopped off toes are used in preparing charms or making charms for the person. You are then told not to do certain things and you might not enjoy your life. Other people are told not to sleep indoors, not to use to relieve themselves in the toilet and are supposed to use the bush. Other people are given certain hours when they should indulge in sexual activities and/or not to marry. When you, the perpetrator, are gone this is when relatives start consulting traditional practitioners who tell them what you have done and they tell them of problems such as bad luck, people who fail to get married or getting employed, getting sick or even dying in the family. They now have a task to undo what you did.”



Mr Kandiero further revealed that it is a risk to them as traditional practitioners to reverse such rituals and people should approach their organisation to get help.

“This process is very technical and needs a lot of money. They are called exorcists and they are the ones who reverse these things. We have those within our fraternity and they can assist. People think that since it is traditional practitioners doing this, they should do it for free.
