Due to the COVID-19 pan­demic and re­stric­tions, the so-called witch­craft doc­tors in Labasa who usu­ally asked money in re­turn for their ser­vice are now en­cour­ag­ing peo­ple to prac­tise at home.

Some in­di­vid­u­als prac­tise at home by of­fer­ing grog, al­co­hol like rum and cig­a­rettes, sit­ting down on a mat wear­ing sulu recit­ing what they have been taught by the witch­craft doc­tors.

When things don’t turn out as ex­pected, they re­turn to the witch­craft doc­tors and end up pay­ing dou­ble.

Mean­while, the witch­craft doc­tors use this time to find out more in­for­ma­tion about what the cus­tomer is af­ter and re­lay this to them upon their re­turn.

What a cun­ning way of mak­ing money. And sad to say, some ed­u­cated peo­ple are part of this gullible lot.
