'12 cows slaughtered in Zuma family ritual'

By Sapa | Nov 26, 2012 | COMMENTS [ 175 ]

President Jacob Zuma’s family killed 12 cows in a ritual believed to be aimed at extending his tenure ahead of the ANC’s national elective conference in Mangaung, according to a report

The Star reported that the family held the ritual at his Nkandla residence on Sunday to commune with Zuma’s ancestors.  

Although no other African National Congress leaders were seen at the event, Zuma joined Zulu warriors in traditional dances as thousands of his relatives prayed for him to retain his position of ANC president.  

Zuma was reportedly given a shield and spear to defend himself from other contenders for the ANC’s top position.  

Zuma’s son Edward told police and security personnel to expel the media towards the end of the celebrations.   A reporter for The Mercury was apparently manhandled off the premises by police.

"But when you get to those monuments you talk, you say something. I've seen white people in Durban's monuments talking with monuments while spraying flowers. Who are you talking to if don't believe the spirit of those people still exist?"

So what ppl talk to the pictures of their loved ones if they are sick or have passed on or even living in a different part of town/world as them, you are getting shockingly dumb as the day goes by, hence I said get your ancestors (if they can) send you braincells for Xmas.

You dumbass. Communicate with your ancestors, maybe you will get your mind working again.

Monuments are not photos, but there is people burried there underneath. White people are talking to those people. You are just denying things unnecessarily here.

"Well, be sturbbon, I don't care. It's your problem with your ancestors. I sorted out my things" what will cure me of my so called stubbornness is PROOF, prove to me that you ancestors can deliver braincells to you for Xmas so that next year we might hear some intelligible commentary from you. PROVE!!!

Do you have a proof that people in the bibble exist? Have you seen them? I believe in them as I believe ancestors.

@Imfene, if the Sangoma tradition/businesses was regulated in teh same that tradition medical practioners are being regulated, ie to prevent them from manipulating/misrepresenting etc you will find that many lives would have been saved, unfortunately in SA there are hundreds manipulating the tradition and misrepresenting it, thus making the whole thing sound primitive and ridiculous.

this Dr Head must have believed when Zuma said ancestors will sort blacks who don't vote against anc? do you ppl realise how easy it is to be fooled cause you don't think, you don't analyse the facts or lack there of of the information disseminated by your so called leaders, that is why it is easy for them to gooi all this ancestory mumbo jumbo all over your eyes in order to get your vote, only to find out later that you've been sold a cat in the sack.

Many comment here on Sangomas, but know nothing of the inner values of their traditions.

Pieksie007- YOU worship the devil. what is the difference between you stupid religion and Dr. Head's belief in ancestry?? you are both living a life of delusion, no wonder the world is so f**ked up, instead of fighting to breach the gap between rich and poor, we have muppets who believe in somethings that dont exist. Try telling the people of Syria, the DRC and Palestine that your God exist, and wait for a response, thats if you can be there long enough to hear their responses.

Dr.Head - Dont need to believe in ancestors to respect the dead.
............................
I'm asking, who are you visiting to those monuments?
----------------------------------------
IRO monuments, for instance when I was in the UK they have a wall where all soldiers died in the war's names are listed, citizens go these walls for remembrance and to pay tribute, they don't worship the dead cause they know that those ppl have died and whatever is left of them are bones, the flesh dissolved into particles of the soil once it has been consumed by living creatures in the ground, the breath evaporated into the gasses of the atmosphere, please think... its not that difficult.

Back to the remembrance of the dead is to remember their deeds, what they stood for or died for, no one sane believes that from their ashes magic powers will emerge, please man

Dr.Head - I think you are CONFUSING ancestor-worship, with showing respect for the dead. You see, in the one case, you know the person is dead, but you are commemorating their time on earth. While, in the other case, your ancestors are dead, but you believe that you can communicate with them. Which reminds you of oujai boards, doesnt it?

@Dr Head, please send sms (if they have cell phone) to your ancestors to give you ability to read with comprehension, cause clearly you are failing even on that, instead you resort to assuming stuff, you have already assumed that I was single? and lonely? and now you assume I believe the bible? Ask someone in your office to translate the messages I wrote here in an ancestry language understood to you.
