We are back on top of the roof shouting at the top of our voices: stop being a sucker.

We must also never forget the lies exposed by the great King Shaka. The king sprayed blood on pillars in one of his huts and summoned all sangomas in the area to the palace.

King Shaka had long suspected that most of them were pretenders riding on stereotypes. He asked them to disclose the person behind the blood.

While these charlatans spoke of witches and witchcraft, this one said: "Your Highness, you sprinkled the pillars with blood."

Lest we forget, some hoodlums are rotting in jail because concoctions from the fly-by-nights could not protect them.

Take heed.
