#HERITAGEMONTH: Healers shift perceptions

The heritage month is important for sangomas, according to traditional healers. Yesterday the country celebrated African Traditional Medicine day. After a near-death experience in the mid 1990s, Fredericks met a sangoma who told him about his calling. Adamant he was no sangoma prospect, he refused to become an “ithwasa” (initiate), eventually heeding his calling after a life of crime and drugs in Heideveld.
