South Africans share their personal experiences with sangomas:

@WorthyPromises said:

"I wouldn't dare. I don't even sit next to someone who's wearing the sangoma attire... I had a traumatic experience with my late friend who had a calling and to be honest I'm scared of izangoma."

@MkandlaKoketso shared:

"I would definitely date one. They are of no harm. Same as doctors, they have a calling of helping patients. People say they're Christian but they judge a lot more than those who don't associate themselves with any belief. We see you..."

@sand_inmotion told his story:

"I am in a relationship with a sangoma, there was never any courting, she was notified in her dream, nangu umyeni wakho, he is broken, we met mysteriously after 2 weeks of the dream. 1 month later, she had to leave for her sangoma initiation. We are blessed with so much peace, love and respect."

"I've dated one. It wasn't that bad. Sometimes she'd tell me about her dreams and visions. We dated for years. I wish things worked out but I was young and dumb AF... I still think about her."

@Mike00404392 responded with:

"Of course, I did date a sangoma never had a problem at all."

@enovaloyi added:

"I dated one before, wouldn't do it again. The last day we broke up and I left her place, within 30 mins of leaving my car's alternator suddenly died, which caused my car to be stuck."
