In South Africa, an unusual court case has sparked fears of a growing trade in human body parts for tribal healers.(Witch Doctor). A police sergeant has been charged with mutilating a dead body in a mortuary and selling the parts for traditional cures. The traditional cleansing ceremony of the Nguni tribe is by no means voodoo, but it is evidence that a strong belief in the healing powers of their ancestors persists - despite the fact that many South Africans live an urban and westernised life. But many traditional medicine cures use human body parts - a charge denied by traditional healers.

I don't place any faith in Mainstream Media. I will however from time to time, use Mainstream Media to show you the differences between Mainstream Media broadcasts (fake news) and REAL NEWS broadcasts. Anyone who is "awake" will clearly see these differences. These videos may contain copyrighted material. Such material is made available for educational purposes only.
