By-A Chitungwiza-based traditional healer, Sekuru Kafura, says he sells goblins to fortune seekers.
Sekuru Kafura told Sunday Mail that prominent people from all over the country visit him seeking goblins.
There is nothing to be ashamed of. I sell goblins to whoever can afford them. I have been doing this since 1972 and this is not a secret.
… When it comes to goblins, we have three packages. We charge US$2 500, US$1 500 and US$500 for the three packages on offer,” he narrated.
He also said that he had sired 100 children and is married to 12 wives, excluding three that died in the past five years.
The 68-year-old is also a successful businessman and farmer.
The Malawi-born traditional healer loves flashy, expensive cars and his garage holds 35 vehicles, among them the latest BMWs, Ford Rangers, Mercedes-Benz and commuter omnibuses.
He said his very large family consumes a beast every week and spends US$826 every week on bread alone.
Unlike the typical traditional healer, Sekuru Kafura, who resides in Unit J, Chitungwiza, is a well-dressed teetotaller who does not take traditional snuff.
He told The Sunday Mail that he is currently training four of his children to become traditional healers after he is gone. He said:
They will only become fully-fledged traditional healers after I am gone. My father taught me this craft and I only started healing people long after my father had died.
I will do the same with my sons; I will not allow a situation in which I will one day compete for clients with my own children.
Sekuru Kafura warned people who are reportedly using his name to defraud his clients. He said:
I am aware of people who are using my good name to rob people. My clients are being robbed in broad daylight.
What I can only say is that those that are doing this must stop or face the consequences.
