This, she said, will help complete the healing process. “I am a spirit medium and I heal with guidance from above. There must be a vigil where people should gather, celebrate the healing process of these kids through song and dance. Without this, there is a danger these kids will have this problem again. I have told their parents this over and over and this is what I do to every patient I discharge,” she said.
She said once the rituals were done she was free to release the children into the custody of their mother.
“It will be up to them to then come back and thank me for treating the kids and taking care of them for the last four years. They are going to school. I pay fees for them and the police who mediated over the issue saw their school reports.
“We then agreed that since it’s now near year-end, we should just let the kids finish this term and then they re-unite with their mother,” she said.
Gogo Maphilisa said she has spent more than the cost of two beasts in the four years she has been with the kids and that the payment was only a matter of principle of the occult.
“Actually when I consulted with the spirit when the kids who could not walk were brought here for the first time, the spirit wanted five beasts but for the sake of helping life, I only said two and it’s not that they should be forced to pay. It’s just a thank you for the job the spirit using me did to heal the kids,” she said.
