MANY OF those who have spoken out against corruption in KZN have been brutally murdered.

But one of them is still standing.


Zulu, who has consistently spoken out against corruption in KZN municipalities, said it was no secret that he used muthi to protect himself from being murdered.

Zulu, friend of the slain former ANC Youth League secretary-general Sindiso Magaqa, mentioned in a Facebook post that while his family prayed for his protection, he protected himself with muthi.

“Nobody will be able to touch me because I have a strong belief in muthi and I use it correctly,” he told Daily Sun.

“I follow all the procedures and the muthi has protected me many times.”

When the SunTeam asked him why he asked for protection from security services if he believed so strongly in the power of muthi, Zulu said: “I know many people want me dead because I hate corruption and I know a lot. I have been tipped off many times about plots to kill me.

“That’s why I asked intelligence services to provide me with protection. But that doesn’t mean I have lost faith in muthi. I just wanted extra security.”

Zulu spoke up at the Moerane Commission of Inquiry and at Magaqa’s memorial service, testifying to assassination attempts and rape allegations.

Zulu said he received a call tipping him off about a plot to kill him last Saturday.

“I should have attended a wedding when I got a call to say I shouldn’t go because I would be shot. I didn’t go, and I’m still alive.”

Sazi Mhlongo of the South African Traditional Healers Association said muthi did protect a person from their enemies.

“A person has to place faith in the muthi and then it will work. Most importantly, it needs to be used correctly.

“It is true that it protects,” said Mhlongo.
