- He's on a mission to teach others that being a sangoma shouldn't affect one's personality
A young traditional healer from Pietermaritzburg, KwaZulu-Natal, is on a mission to spread the idea of a modern sangoma to the youth.
24-year-old Thandukuthula "Thando" Khambule has branded himself #pimpDLOZI, Briefly.co.za gathered.
Speaking to Daily Sun, he said he started his civil engineering studies in college in 2011, but failed a module. He couldn't figure out what went wrong.
In addition, he was having strange dreams at night. Following his dad's advice, he consulted several sangomas, who all told him that he had a calling to be a sangoma as well.
Thando said this took him by surprise because he was a committed Christian. Nevertheless, he decided to accept his calling.
Besides his love for the ancestors, Thando also has a passion for fashion. He uses his Facebook page to show that it's possible to be a sangoma while living a modern lifestyle. He explained:
I still dress elegantly. People should know that being a sangoma does not change who you are. It just adds more value and respect to your life.
