The woman, who uses the username @Ntshalie on Twitter, shared the anecdote on her profile recently, Briefly.co.za gathered.

@Ntshalie eventually answered her calling and, as posts and photos on her Twitter profile reveal, she is proud of it.

For instance, she recently shared how being a sangoma enables her to perform activities normally reserved for men.
