Honestly bafethu.....Igwababa😥, but OK that was my excuse when they tease me of how I did not have a girl
Mdantsane is an abondoned Village in the Eastern Cape which has been ruled under Monarchy for centuries by the royal family of the Sukwini Clan.
So I told moghel I was coming.
But she left a day before, but directed me where to get off and that if she doesn't come to the bus stop, she was gonna send people to pick me up
Nutritional imbalance, they eat Paw Paw like we eat Pap & Vleis
They were very fit, they were trained to carry heavy stuf
They drove me in the wheelbarrow until I slept, woke up just before the village
I got there during their ceremony called Intonjane , where they slaughter cows for Sangoma initiates
I'm talking about Sangomas who live in the Sea under water.
People who accepted the call to become Sangomas would stay underwater for a certain period as initiation , so Intonjane ceremony was to feed them
Flying on a broom was believed to have been invented by them, they did far more scary shit like mating Snakes with chicken to give birth to an animal called Inxakwe
She had lots of brothers, I lost count at 38 when she was introducing me to them.
All of them where trained to drive a wheelbarow
He had so many children that he didn't even know some of their names, he called them by numbers, he had them in groups.
Moghel was in a group called the izi trom trom , meaning River Goddesses
They where about to start one of their rituals called "ukubhebhisa umtshakazi" a ceremony where a woman is taken to the river and chooses a man of her choice then sama nyobi nyobi
I then headed towards the river following their trails.
It was my first time in the rain forest
It was all misty and foggy, they believed it was bad spirits causing that mist
I remember this one time while I was sleeping in a rondeval hearing a knock on the door in the middle of the night, a guy was busy saying "Ndicela okwe jersey ndiyagodola"
Shit scared me to my toes
So I left to go find help , but proceeded to other side towards the river where everyone else was
Ukufutha and Ukucima is a ceremony where Xhosa people slaughter a cow to celebrate heroes, a Cow is slaughtered & drained off it's blood, about 30L of blood then..
So they did the UKUFUTHA & UKUCIMA ceremony on me, and took me out then offered me a bride
Deeped my hand in the water and pulled out those 2 bottles I had found in the crashed Airplane, ones meant for water for the crashed pilot
