Over the years, technology has totally transformed the way we live. It has helped us find new ways of doing things, kept us connected with loved ones, and it’s even allowed us to do grocery shopping from the safety of our homes. These days, it’s not unusual to go to church online – or see a traditional healer.
Sdumo Dumezizweni Viwe is a sangoma from Langa, Cape Town, who offers online consultations. The 30-year-old traditional healer turned to technology last year because he didn’t want to turn people away. He’d been practising for more than a year and word had quickly spread, he tells DRUM.
