- Thabang was a sangoma
- He claims his rival sangomas bewitched him
- As a result, his leg was amputated and he no longer practises
A man in Bekkersdal, Gauteng, claims his rival sangomas bewitched him and caused his leg to be amputated.
Speaking to dailysun.co.za, Thabang Pitso said he ran a successful practise as a sangoma for many years.
However, he said he stepped on a strange object that looked like a banana wrapped in cotton wool about two years ago.
It happened just outside the gate of my shack. At first I didn’t think about it but I became suspicious of the cotton wool.
As a precaution, he said he used some muthi to protect himself from any eventuality. However, a wound started growing on his left leg and progressively got worse.
In the end, doctors had to amputate the leg. To make matters worse, he no longer received clients and had to stop practising. He said:
I’m lucky to be alive but I can’t operate my business anymore. I survive on a disability grant now.
