His confidence came from the muthi belts that he wore on his arms.
But it appears he broke the basic rules of wearing muthi belts and almost paid for it with his own life!
Residents said the young man from Joburg killed someone and fled.
But minutes later, even before his alleged victim’s corpse was stiff, he was lying bleeding just streets away.
Early on Monday morning, residents say the young man killed the man on the corner of Jeppe and Goud streets and ran off.
It seems he stopped and took a breather at the corner in the Joburg CBD, when a group of unknown people cornered him and gave him the beating of his life.
This time around, his muthi belts could not save him.
Vosloorus traditional healer Mahlinza Dlamini said people who wear muthi belts must make sure they follow the rules.
“The first rule is you cannot sleep with a woman while wearing them.
“Secondly, you have to come back to the inyanga to revive the belts every year or two to keep them powerful.
“If you don’t do that, back luck will follow you everywhere you go.”
