“His multitudes of clients and patients visit him at different times. Some visit him during the day and the more shy ones who insist on privacy frequent his shrine at night. For one to meet Sekuru Banda, a prior appointment should be made through his assistants who then provide them with actual dates and time. Sekuru Banda is so busy that quite often he skips meals to cater for the needs of his clients.”
