Lucas Sebona, a former winger with the Moroka Swallows, describes how the team escaped a lightning strike during a game against Jomo Cosmos. Sebona, who spent almost a decade with the Swallows, suggested that the bolt of lightning was caused by Muti being used against them.
"The one that I remember, which was quite a scary experience, was when we were hit by lightning," Sebona stated in his Still In Touch interview in the newest Soccer Laduma edition when asked about a comical incident that comes to mind.
"I believe it was a match against Jomo Cosmos." We had a well-known inyanga at the time, and we were hurriedly removed from the spot on his orders."
"Hey, there was a lot of muti there (at Swallows), hey." They started without your permission.doing everything on you as a player I've never been a believer in muti."
The former footballer from Middelburg also detailed what would happen if a player refused to participate in the club's muti rituals back in the day.
"They cast you aside. You will be unable to participate. In fact, everyone used to have input. Phela wonk' umuntu bekane "No, let's not play him," even the muti guy would protest. "This one is going to kill my muti," he predicted.
