LITTLE Asande was taught from the tender age of two years old how to handle his prophet father’s four snakes.

And now, four years later and at just six years of age, he is ready to handle his father’s clients while the prophet goes to Mozambique.

Asande is the son of prophet Delano “Madlanduna” Luthuli from KZN.

The snake boy made headlines on 28 January, 2015 with the headline, “Asande goes to bed with his dad’s snake.”

His father’s recent WhatsApp profile picture showed his son with a snake around his neck and money, with the caption: “This is your money, my son”.

Madlanduna told Daily Sun: “His job is to heal people. His ancestors will give him more money if he does his job properly. I taught him how to handle my snakes and how to use them to heal. He passed with flying colours.”

The Grade R pupil said: “At first I was scared of the snakes but now they are my friends.”

One of his clients said: “The boy is very powerful. He’s always spot on.”
