Identified as Julius Bwanali, the 22-year-old works in Mabvuku, a suburb in Harare, Zimbabwe and is raking in a lot of money.

Malawai 24 reports that Bwanali's tools of trade include beads and bunches of tied sticks stashed in bottles. He charges $1 for his services.

So far, victims of theft were the ones who dominated one of Bwanali’s displays in the suburb.

The witch doctor claimed to fly aeroplanes to neighbouring countries as well.

“I have several traditional charms that can bring back lost lovers, help one to be promoted, acquire jobs and win court cases if you did not commit the alleged offences,” he said.

He added he has been in and out of Zimbabwe offering his services. Some residents are, however, not buying that.
