My father went to investigate the Hatfield Haunting. He went with another physchic investigator who felt there was nothing strange about the house. Moses arrived together with his wife Loveness and the wife of the neighbour they were staying with at the time. They were all very nervous. They were later joined by three other ghost hunters.
The ghost hunters walked around the house and announced that the atmosphere was heavy and that they could feel it in the walls.
My father said that all he felt was a headache - it was building up for rain. The ghost hunters said this was because of the haunting not the rain.
Moses then escorted them around the house which was semi detached, not more than six years old and newly painted.
One of the ghost hunters went into the haunted bedroom by himself and he could be heard talking in a low monotone.
Moses told my father that he had spent $300 on trying to rid the house of the ghost and had been to four ngangas. One from Mufakose had not even asked him about the house - but described the hauntings in detail. All the ngangas had said that there were graves underneath. One had said that a nearby neighbour was a witch but that she was not connected with the occurrences. Moses said he was so depressed he would weep at times.
The ghost hunter reappeared out of the darkened bedroom and handed his wife two crucifixes. "She won't come to me. She is afraid of these." he said and went back into the darkness.
Ten minutes later he came out looking pleased. "She touched my face with her hands and tried to close the door. I told her it wasn't right that I should be alone with her in the dark with the door closed."
"She has gone. It has never happened before. I've seen them and heard them but none have ever touched me before."
My father asked where the ghost had gone and was told to the next plane of existence. My father asked how he knew and the ghost hunter told him he felt it.
The ghost hunter assured Moses that the house was cleared and that he could return with his family, "It is no longer haunted."
My father offered to spend a night in the house to assure them the evil presence was gone but the family moved out completely to another area of town. They said they would never go back under any circumstances.
