A six-year-old Birchenough Bridge girl who went missing last week was found dead and her body decomposing. Source reports that the little girl, Miracle Matake, left home in a rush on 12 October 2023. She was hastening nearby to see an accident which had just occurred. Unbeknownst to her parents, this was the last time to see her alive.

The community members in the Birchenough Bridge area then assisted in a spirited search for the little girl on Thursday, 12 October. Only on Sunday, 15 October, the community members found Miracle dead close to the weighbridge.

To their horror, Miracle’s body had started decomposing.

“We have gathered that the girl was playing with her sibling outside their home at Birchenough Bridge shops. The parents run a grocery shop in the area. Their parents were inside the shop while the children were playing outside. At around 8 pm, unbeknown to the parents, the two children joined a crowd that went to witness a road traffic accident that had occurred near the shops. The parents started looking for the children but could not locate them.

“They, however, managed to locate the other child after some time. When asked about the whereabouts of her sibling, the other child professed ignorance. A report was made to the police the following day, and a search for the missing girl commenced. The girl’s body was discovered by a villager who stays opposite the weighbridge. We are waiting for the post-mortem results to establish the cause of the girl’s death.”

Miracle Matake’s broken dad, Mwadira Matake, mourned:

“She was sadly found in a decomposing state. Her body was found close to the hospital near the weighbridge. We buried her on Wednesday. This is really a difficult period for me and my family. I never thought my child would die in this manner. It is painful. We could not establish whether all the body parts were intact since the police told us to keep a distance as they carried out their investigations when the body was discovered on Sunday.

“However, from a distance, we could see that the legs, head and arms were intact. We are just waiting for the post-mortem results to establish whether there are any parts missing. However, everyone around strongly suspects that this is the work of ritual murderers.”
