Johannesburg - A Soweto sangoma has disappeared with a car he obtained in exchange for medicine, which would purportedly make the owner lucky and rich, police said on Thursday.

Police spokesperson Kay Makhubela said the man went to see the sangoma in May.

He apparently gave the sangoma his Nissan Navara as payment for the good luck medication.

"When the complainant realised that this luck was not coming in, he went back to the sangoma [on Wednesday]," Makhubela said.

"When he got there, he found that the sangoma had moved [away]. The sangoma was nowhere to be found with the Navara."

A case of theft under false pretences was opened.

Makhubela said police were searching for the sangoma.

"We urge people not to be cheated by those promising that they will give them muti to win the lotto, when they [the sangomas] themselves did not get that same luck."
