NHLANGANO – A South African man has died while consulting a local traditional healer, after developing a sickness as punishment for sleeping with another man’s wife.

The man lost the battle to this strange ailment at around 3pm on Monday, two days after arriving at the popular inyanga’s place which is situated around Jabulani, towards the north-west of Eswatini’s southern town of Nhlangano.

It is understood that the local healer had previously helped the same man, who is believed to be in his 30s, when he initially approached him seeking help for his condition two years ago.

Information gathered was that the man developed a strange illness, which at times caused him to hallucinate, after he was allegedly caught cheating with another man’s wife back at his home area, which is located in the northern part of KwaZulu-Natal.


He was then referred to the local traditional healer, who was known to be good at undoing such spells.
During that time, the healer was indeed able to cure the illness, which was blamed on witchcraft.

However, after administering treatment, the inyanga reportedly gave the man a stern warning before releasing him back home; he was expected to give a wide berth to the married woman in order for the treatment to work properly.

Reports are that the South African national somehow got healed and the man had been reportedly living a normal life, until he recently fell into temptation again. The man is said to have gone back to seek happiness in the arms of the married woman, and there were consequences again.

Things reportedly took a drastic turn when he began hallucinating again, and this time around the sickness was said to be so severe that even his relatives gave up on him. In some way, the man ended up finding his way back to the same traditional healer who once assisted him.


Information gathered was that the man came to the traditional healer crying on Friday, asking for help again. The inyanga, who also noted that the illness had become severe, reportedly tried all he could to undo the spell but all efforts were in vain. The man eventually succumbed to his illness on Monday afternoon.
“He lost consciousness while relaxing in the yard on Monday afternoon. I tried to wake him up but his body remained unresponsive,” narrated the shocked traditional healer during an interview yesterday.
