BUSINESSWOMAN QUITS TO BECOME SANGOMA
A Victoria Falls businesswoman has quit to become a n’anga. Dr Manake believes in the power of the marine spirit.
She said she has found peace in her new world where she claims she carries the Nyaminyami spirit and conducts healing sessions along the mighty Zambezi river.
“I used to operate a ten bedroomed lodge and established a successful tour company little did l know i was scaring wana sekuru. I consulated and was told i carry a spirit. I said the best thing is to follow the spirit,” said Dr Manake.
It was not easy for the resort town community and friends to get to terms with the rebranded Dr Manake.
“We do get into the underworld depending on the level of spirituality. I carry one or two spirits. I carry the spirit of the Nyaminyami iri pana Zambezi and when l get there ndinongonzva ndichida kupinda,” she said.
“We need something which moulds us starting with our culture. Why should we deny communication with our ancestors?
God will appreciate people if they follow the pattern from which they come from,” she said.
