Daily SunSangoma Fortunate Machaba claims it doesn't concern her ancestors that she appears like a slain queen. Aaron Dube's photo. When she wanted to answer her call, she spoke to her ancestors about looking stunning and sexy.

"Amadlozi is very understanding, as long as you make brewed beer and use snuff when you talk to them."

The 25-year-old from Mamelodi Extension 4, east of Tshwane, told Daily Sun that she was still dressed to kill, wore weaves and make-up, and made her nails.

"It doesn't mean that I disobey my ancestors or I don't listen to them. They assured me they weren't concerned as long as I valued my call," she said.

"I used to get sick, both emotionally and spiritually," she said.

"I went to the prophets and traditional healers who advised me I had to answer my call to get rid of the headaches.

"I was healed after I had finished my training."

She said that even if she never intended to be a sangoma, she wouldn't marry someone who didn't believe in custom.

"I'm happy to be a sangoma, but don't believe I have to be married to a sangoma," she said.

"I need someone that can understand and communicate with me.

"I respect my spiritual life more than my personal life."

She was a founder of the Apostolic Church and is now in the operation.

"There is some discrimination on the part of churches against izangoma, but people should understand that we also pray," Fortunate said.

Her gogo, Chongo Mamogobo (64), said she was concerned about her situation when she was younger.

"I'm glad she knows the truth and she's going to support the family," she said.
