PALESA Nyandeni believes prayers stopped muthi from coming into her house.
A woman came to plant muthi at her home, but instead went next door.
The neighbour, Nhlanhla Nhlabathi from Wattville in Ekurhuleni, said she found the woman digging and sprinkling muthi in her yard on Thursday.
She said she called her sister Lily to come and see. When they asked her what she was doing, the woman apologised and said she was at the wrong address.
Nhlanhla called neighbours and they wanted to beat the woman. But she was saved by cops patrolling the area.
The sisters sprinkled holy water around the yard to chase away evil spirits.
Palesa said it was not the first time the woman had tried to attack her family with muthi.
“I believe prayer made her get lost and instead of sprinkling muthi in our yard, she went to the wrong house.
“She accused us of being jealous of her, but she doesn’t see she’s blessing us.
“Her muthi doesn’t work. There was a time she spread it on our clothes on the washing line.”
Before being taken by cops, the woman said she was not done with the Nyadenis. “You are going to pay for this!” she said.
Residents said they didn’t want her in their kasi.
The woman was taken to Actonville cop shop for her safety.
Sangoma Ndukuyamanzi Sithole said the muthi was probably intended to bring bad luck.
