Mampintsha’s family reveals what a Sangoma told Mampintsha to do with a goat a few days ago so he wouldn’t die. The musician and songwriter died unexpectedly on Saturday morning.
The 40-year-old, whose real name is Mandla Maphumulo, was admitted to King Edward Hospital in Durban before being transferred to the Durcoc Hospital, according to a statement that was officially released on Wednesday.
Mampintsha’s sister, Pinky Gumede, told the Daily Sun that they received a call the previous week telling them to rush to his house.
“When we arrived he looked very sick. His speech was very affected. He told us that he consulted with a sangoma and was told to do (amagobongo) traditional ceremony,” Pinki told the outlet.
Pinki revealed that they bought a goat for the ritual but Mampintsha did not arrive home for the ritual. Instead, they slaughtered the goat and ate it.
“He asked us to buy a goat and get impepho, so he could perform the ritual. We went back home and did exactly that. But he never arrived. Instead, he told us to perform the ritual without him. We were surprised by this., but couldn’t do anything. As a result, we slaughtered the goat and ate it. But we did not burn impepho,” she said.
“Days later we learned that he had suffered a stroke and he was admitted to hospital. Again we contacted Babes and her family, but we were told not to worry about him because everything is fine. We know he’s very sick but we are being sidelined again and there is nothing we can do. We are worried and scared that something bad might happen to him.”
