- Portia Mohapi completed her training and is now a traditional healer

- She proudly declared that she's ready to start healing people
A woman based in Orange Farm, Johannesburg, proudly graduated as a traditional healer (inyanga) and prophet over the weekend.
Portia Mohapi answered the call of the ancestors after a series of mysterious dreams and an unexplained illness, Daily Sun reports.
After consulting several sangomas, she started training with Nomsa Gumede in Grasmere, Johannesburg south.
Friends and family joined Portia to celebrate her graduation, Briefly.co.za learned. In an interview, she explained that she now knows how to connect with her ancestors.
More importantly, she understands how to ask them for guidance:
I know how to read ditaola. I also know the difference types of muthi and how to mix them. I’m ready to heal the nation.
Her trainer, Nomsa, warned her not to misuse her "powers" for witchcraft. Should Portia do this, she would lose her "powers," Nomsa said.
Portia's family supported her throughout her training. Her daughter, Tshegofatso Makhene, said she's glad her mom finally yielded to the call of the ancestors.
