Masechaba Ndlovu responds over becoming Sangoma rumours


Masechaba Ndlovu speaks out over claims she’s training to be a Sangoma after picture of her and traditional healer circulated on social media.

Speculations started a few months ago after Metro Fm host shared a series of pictures of her at what seemed like a traditional ceremony enough to convince everyone that she was training to be a traditional healer.

Speaking about the swirling rumours, Masechaba told YFM’s Khutso Theledi that being a healer doesn’t necessarily mean that you have undergone training.

“I am a healer. That is not necessarily because I went through traditional healer training; you feel my energy and you recognise me in that light because you feel it, you see it.”

She explained that there has often been some confusion when she has posted pictures of herself at intitiates’ graduation ceremonies in traditional dress.

“I have been initiated (ho thwasa) so many times by social media critics. I have gone to graduation school. I have heard critics say, ‘What kind of initiate (thwasana) wears makeup?'”
