We do have a Sangoma - Herbalist in the village. This is for
people who are genuinely interested in finding out about Traditional
healers. The Bones are thrown and the Sangoma discusses health,
travel and well-being of the visitor. You have to ask the questions
that you are interested in e.g. health, travel family
etc. You have to read between the lines and the answers are
often symbolic. Most of the time only the genuinely interested
people will get a good response. Other Visitors can be disappointed,
but it is up to you to ask as many questions as possible.
If you are not happy with his consultation - please tell Pitso
