Is it true or not?
A question posed by the Topnewstv’s Corrupt Practices Unit in Nigeria following a media report in Nigeria claims that people in Zimbabwe are cutting off their legs at $ 40,000 to find a way out tomorrow.
Our department distributed this information and found that it was committed by a Zimbabwean woman named Gambakwe.
In an article published on May 22, Gambakwe said “Sangoma suspects in South Africa are extorting large sums of money from unemployed Zimbabwean youth if their limbs are amputated.”
Sangoma is the name given to the patriarch in South Africa.
The website linked to a WhatsApp post which the website said people were circulating in Zimbabwe.
According to the company, the sale is being held at the Ximex Mall in Harare, Zimbabwe’s capital.
The issue has since spread to other African countries and people in Uganda and Nigeria have started posting it on Twitter.

This Twitter post specifically uses an image from a report originally posted on Gambakwe’s website.
These pictures are being circulated to support this free news.
The Kenya 933 KFM radio station wrote about the news on their Twitter account and even asked their listeners what parts they were willing to sell for money.
For their part, the Zimbabwean newspaper H-Metro shared an interview with traders who said that strangers were asking us how they could make a living in the sale of this feature. .
Traders who spoke to H-Metro said they told the men it was a free report.
The Topnewstv’s investigative team is also reviewing two videos in which they say members of the public want to buy or sell their own version.
We see that they are not a viable video, some of them are playing.
In one of these videos, a man pretends to be cutting his baby but there is no sign that he really is.
Apparently he was trying to get people to watch his video because the person who allegedly cut off your baby in this video is laughing.
