Workers in Zimbabwe stopped working on water reservoirs because of mermaids. They refuse to return to the site until a traditional beer is brewed & a ritual performed to appease the spirits.


Mermaids scare off reservoir workers


I hope a scientist or cryptozooligist goes and checks out this situation.
They should take advantage of this rare opportunity to investigate a modern day mermaid sighting.  It would interesting to know what the workers are basing the mermaids presence on;  feelings, sightings or what.
