The sangoma who predicted that Bafana Bafana would beat Egypt has spoken up following the surprise victory.
On Friday, Briefly.co.za reported that a sangoma, who hails from Soweto, said his bones predicted that Bafana Bafana would win against Egypt on Saturday night.
Nzama Maluleke added he has been a sangoma for 10 years and his bones have never lied to him. Our readers were skeptical and laughed off the sangoma's prediction, especially after taking into consideration Bafana's weak start in the competition.
"Well there's a first time for everything," one of our readers commented.
However, Mzansi was surprised when Bafana Bafana did indeed beat the host country, knocking them out of the tournament.
Now, Maluleke has spoken up after the national team's 1 -0 win, the Daily Sun reported.
"My bones never lie, they saw the Bafana Bafana victory over Egypt coming,” he said.
Maluleke said he went to his indumba to thank his ancestors for showing him the Bafana win.
“I burned imphepho and thanked the ancestors for showing me this,” he said.
Bafana is now set to face off against Nigeria in the quarter-finals but Nzama has not yet thrown his bones to predict the results.
“I will wait for my ancestors to tell me and then ask for confirmation from the bones,” he said.
