World Cup And Witch Doctors Give Each Other A Thumbs Up

06.11.2010 · Posted in Witchcraft

trophy Sebenzile Nsukwini’s, a 33-year-old Zulu witch-doctor, cast bones and shells in Johannesburg lately to see what they would tell her about the upcoming World Cup events being hosted there. What she saw were good omens and no signs of terrorist attacks.

Recently, other South African witch doctors, or sangomas, slaughtered a cow at the Soccer City stadium to bless the stadium and just maybe give a little home field advantage to the local team.

FIFA, the organization running the World Cup, stated that African teams may use traditional healers and methods of treatment during the games, as long as none of the doping rules are violated.
