Traditional healers, who in African terms are known as Sangomas are highly appreciated by many people. This is a spiritual gift that most Africans are assigned. Not everyone can accumulate this gift, and it should be appreciated when you have it. However, since Africans are westernized by colonization, they are losing their roots and culture, calling African spirituality demonic. Sangomas are part of our societies and we need them.
