Traditional healer, Johnson Dlalisana Khambule

Johnson Dlalisana Khambule talks about traditional healing (in isiZulu)

English summary:  The Sangoma is explaining that the Isidlodlo, (the goat skin) on his wall symbolizes to him a time when he was remembering his ancestors who are in heaven; remembering them by slaughtering a goat and burning incense then using a part of the Isidlodlo, (the goat skin) as a sign of remembrance and thanks giving for all the good fortunes in his life that God and his ancestors have done for him. Each skin on his wall shows how many times he has paid tribute to his ancestors.

The two goat skins hanging on the wall are called Inqombo also a goat skin, it is worn when he is terminally ill because of his ancestors calling, which traditionally happens when they (the ancestors) require someone to be a Sangoma or as it is usually termed a traditional healer. Firstly he slaughters a goat, talks and agrees with his ancestors that he will become a Sangoma. That same goat he slaughters’ he puts it on his body and wears it, then he get healed because he has done what his ancestors want from him. That is what Inqombo is used for.
