IRISVALE HALT, Zimbabwe, Jan. 17 (UPI) -- Residents of a Zimbabwe village said they've "cleansed" a medical clinic of goblins but nurses who fled the clinic are still too afraid to come back to work.

Mhelethi Moyo, a resident of Irisvale Halt, said the Irisvale Clinic has been closed since Nov. 22, when four nurses fled following what they claimed were attacks from goblins, Newsday, Harare, Zimbabwe, reported Thursday.

"They took away those goblins and the clinic is now clean," Moyo said. "We need the nurses to prove it for themselves, but they still believe that they will get attacked if they come back.

"We have been hearing stories that the goblins have moved to businesses in this area. Several female employees in these shops have been complaining about the mysterious attacks. However, the clinic was cleansed and there are no goblins there anymore. Efforts have been made to bring back the nurses, but they are not showing any interest and some of them are now even working for other clinics in the district," Moyo said. "The clinic will remain closed until we find people to work there."
