NUMBER OF TRADITIONAL HEALERS INCREASING AT HIGH RATE

Lulekani is so far leading with a highest number of approximately 347 Traditional Healers followed by Ga-Selwane Village which is carrying 206 qualified traditional healers and 15 under the initial stage of training.

In 2020 most of the people especially youth in the villages of Phalaborwa began to consider their callings and followed voices of their ancestors in order to help people

“As much as we have different beliefs, I clearly understand why other people criticize us, but there’s none of us who went for a initial training in order to get powers of killing. What we do best we heal, strengthen “mjolo”, and other positive work that does not affect anyone” says one of the old traditional healers in Ga-Selwane

Most of them they usually leave to Gauteng after completing their initial training due date high competition in the villages

“I’m impressed on how youth especially girls consider our work more than their parents, youth of maseke, mashishimale, Selwane, lulekani and majeje, usually consult more than older people and this clearly shows how they don’t want to forsake the culture of their ancestors” says a traditional healers in lulekani
