Myth bust

IF POLICE claims are true, don't believe everything a sangoma tells you.

A thief did after making off with R472000 from a cash depot - and ended up in jail.

The smart alec travelled from Gauteng to KwaZulu-Natal to ask his trusted muthi man to make him a favourite with his bosses.

He paid the sangoma, who told him his muthi would do the trick, R19000 for the supply.

Confident, the heist kingpin swaggered back to his work station. He was promptly arrested.

The magic man has also been picked up from his rural home.

The police have recovered part of the loot, R295000, from the employee and part of the R19000 the magic man was paid.

Simply put: tokoloshes or wonder balms that will make you invisible can be plain scare tactics.
