Witch was a Zamrock band formed in the 1970s.

Widely seen as the most popular Zambian band of the 1970s, Witch (an acronym for 'We Intend to Cause Havoc') were formed during Zambia's golden post-independence days, and were headed by Emanuel "Jagari" Chanda.[1]

With the economy collapsing in the late-1970s, and increasing government authoritarianism, Witch, like most Zamrock bands, were reduced to playing daytime shows to avoid the curfews, and faded away.[1] As of 2013, Jagari is touring again.[1]
