A FINGER of a parent points to a son who is a witch doctor after his house is set on fire and claims to be cruel.
Khanyisile Simu (64) of KwaNzimakwe, near Port Shepstone, on Wednesday afternoon woke up to the flames of a house fire. Ms Shusha accuses one of her sons of being a witch doctor and says he does not wish her well.
"I was coming back from the doctor's bed and I was woken up by the children saying it was on fire. The boy in the house had been seen before the house burned down. I have no enemies outside, he is my child," said Msisha.
One of the rooms burned down during Khanyisile's house fire. He said the son was arrested after he shot, killed his other son who was a security guard and he suspected that they had been cheated on by a witch doctor's son.
"My children were shot dead last month, by their brother who I suspect has misled them in some way. I don't know what to do because I am still injured. My children are being cheated on by this child. He has a bad heart and I don't know if he wants to see me dead." said Mrs. Download.

Asked by the leader of traditional healers, Sazi Mhlongo, whether a traditional healer can deceive people with medicine? He replied that this was confusing and that they did not know about it as traditional healers.
"The advent of modern witchcraft and the kind of people that exist create new beliefs that we are not aware of because I do not know anything like that," said Mhlongo.
