Sangoma robbed!




SANGOMA Alex Luthuli (37) went to buy a live sheep for a thanksgiving ceremony at his church.

He got one for R2 000 and hitchhiked back to the kasi.

But now he is injured and is without his sheep after the driver stopped to drop him off and raced away with the animal in the back!

Alex was seriously injured as the Golf 2 bumped him before speeding off.

It happened on 10 June after he bought the sheep at Randfontein Livestock & Poultry, along the R28 to Joburg.

He was on his way home to Ghana section near Westonaria when he hitched a lift from a motorist.

“On the way to the kasi, he stopped. I started to get out of the car but the driver just sped off and stole my sheep, leaving me injured,” said Alex.

He has warned whoever robbed and injured him.

“I was supposed to thank my ancestors for my work as a sangoma and for my business as a builder, but all these have turned to bad luck,” he told the People’s Paper.

“I am now dreaming about this man coming to me to apologise, but I see myself refusing to accept his apology.

“I nearly died and this man walks free without any pain. He is going to suffer and wander the streets. I’m just waiting to get healed.”

Alex is now asking church members of the Sinai Apostolic Church in Zion in Mandela section, Bekkersdal, to pray for him.

Sergeant Linki Lefakane said cops would help him open a case and urged people to avoid hitch-hiking on the R28 and N12. There have been robberies on the roads. — Online
