- Builders found a baby coffin buried in the home of their client
- A sangoma opened the coffin and discovered there was ritual materials in it
- According to Lukowe, the objects inside the coffin was for the previous owner to become rich but it wreaked havoc on the new owner’s life
When Sphiwe Motoba returned to his home in Hammanskral, Tshwane, on a Wednesday, he saw all the builders he hired standing outside his yard.
At first the 40-year-old thought the men might be drunk, but then he heard a startling revelation- the builders were afraid because they found a baby coffin buried in his outbuilding.
He immediately phoned sangoma Dada Lukowe, who came to open the coffin and look at its contents.
Briefly.co.za learned the coffin contained two animal skins, a spear, muthi in a bottle, and beads. According to Lukowe, the muthi was not for Motoba, since it had been buried there by the previous home owner for financial welfare.
The sangoma told the worried man the previous home owner had a ritual done, which would help him get rich. However, for the muthi to work, one person had to die each year.
Lukowe said the owner sold his home after he ran out of sacrifices, and now the burden of the muthi fell on Motoba.
He added the muthi was creating chaos in Motoba’s life because the owner died. Lukowe claimed it was the muthi that drove Motoba’s wife away.
The father of two said strange things would happen in the house, including objects moving around and his money disappearing.
He added he and his wife would fight a lot and she ended up taking their kids and leaving him. Now, Motoba hopes the discovery would mean his wife would return.
The Daily Sun reported Motoba said the owner should have taken the coffin with him, adding he had to spend a lot of money on sangomas and prophets.
As for the builders, Motoba said he asked them to come back and he is hopeful they will, adding they left their tools behind.
