Senzeni Nxumalo, a prominent Zimbabwean traditional healer from Bulawayo’s Nguboyenja suburb became the centre of attraction last Sunday when she attended a church service to surrender scales of a python and sacks full of muthi (charm).
According to B-Metro, she also made confessions that she had become paralysed as a result of her occupation.
The distraught Senzeni Nxumalo (61) attended Johane Masowe Wechishanu church’s shrine in Selborne Park last Sunday.
During a testimony Nxumalo opened up before congregants and Emmanuel Gwandida popularly known as Prophet Madzibaba Mutumwa on why she was renouncing her profession.
“I have been a traditional healer for the past two decades and all was well but in 2014 things took a nasty turn.
"During my sleep I felt things sucking my blood and I would wake up with incisions on my shoulders and thighs. I tried to fight back those things but they never gave up, resultantly I became paralysed. Since then I have been leading a life of pain,” she said.
She looked for assistance from other sangomas but drew a blank.
“I sought help from sangomas in Binga, Chipinge and Beitbridge but the situation did not change. I lost a lot of money instead,” said Nxumalo.
As she was losing hope and thought she would forever lead a life of pain a neighbour advised her to attend Johane Masowe Wechishanu. Without any second thoughts she obliged.
“When I came here (at the shrine) my life was in a terrible state and I thought I would die because at one point I failed to talk, as such I concluded in my mind that I was a few steps away from my grave,” she said.
Speaking to B-Metro from her home in Nguboyenja suburb she said she was now living a happy life.
“Life has become better. I used to feel pain and it has stopped. I’m also gaining strength,” she said.
Nxumalo’s daughter Sitheni is grateful that her mother was assisted. THINK YOUR FRIEND WOULD BE INTRESTED? SHARE THIS STORY USING ANY OF THE SHARE BUTTON BELOW ⬇ PLACE YOUR TEXT ADVERT BELOW:>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
