Mkhulu Majola said the gift has been taken lightly, and there should be a way to minimise publicising it.
“There are African healers, sangomas, shamans, and Indian shamans. There are also psychics. Most of them are on the Western side. There's Chinese healers. There are different types of healers and the question is why is there more concentration on ubungoma than the other healers?
Speaking about what she thinks needs to be done to ensure the sacredness is kept intact, the traditional healer said there was a need for regulation of the content aired.
“It starts with us healers ,who have a federation of healers that governs most things and operations. The reason everyone feels they can do whatever they please is because there's nobody to whom they are accountable. You look at the industries of lawyers and doctors, their licences can be revoked.
“The same applies to us. We need that body that will govern things for us. While we are trying to do that, I think from the grassroots level let's try not to entertain or allow ourselves to be used in these shows for the benefit of destructing our lovely gift.”
