In January this year, a student from Chiadzwa in Manicaland province, Zimbabwe, was allegedly snatched by mermaids at a dam near his school, only to resurface after 30 minutes.

The student, from Gandauta secondary School in the Chiadzwa area recently talked about his ordeal to a team probing and inspecting the damage caused by Mbada Diamonds and Diamond Mining Company (DMC) mines.

The committee's report said: "The student reportedly went missing and when he came out of the dam he narrated what had happened to him and how he got under the water and all he said was related to being taken by a mermaid. This happened on January 8, 2014."

The report which was submitted to the Provincial Ema Manager by the committee says the student was reportedly taken by mermaids in a dam adjacent to two schools.

"Mermaids were reportedly seen in the dam that was built (by the mining companies) and this is instilling fear in both the school staff and students."
