Over two decades ago (Sept 14th, 1994) 62 students from a remote elementary school in Ruwa, Zimbabwe saw something very strange. A silver object descended from the sky and onto their school-yard. Many kids ran away while others “stood transfixed at the strange events unfolding before their eyes.”
All the children (ages 5-12) were asked to draw what they saw, as they were the only witnessess of what happened. Of all the drawings, 22 of them were very clear and very similar to each other. They all depicted a “flying saucer” and a strange humanoid creature. It’s also important to note that many of these kids did not have media access.
Cynthia Hind, a South African MUFON field investigator was called and asked to help out in this case. She interviewed all the kids and asked them all questions.
“The children vary in cultures: there are black, white, coloured and Asian children. One little girl said to me, ‘I swear by every hair on my head and the whole Bible that I am telling the truth.’ I could see the pleasure on her face when I told her that I believed her. The smaller children from 5-7 years were very frightened at the time and ran shouting ‘Help me, help me.’ When the older children asked why they were saying this, the reply was, ‘He is coming to eat us.’ I should think this applied more to the black African children who have legends of _tokoloshies_ eating children.”
This case remains unexplained for the most part. Some skeptics have brushed it off as mass-hysteria while other skeptics believe it to be a school yard prank. All the kids that were interviewed had similar stories and descriptions of what transpired.
