Traditional and religious healers’ body puts workshops on hold

TAFELKOP – The South African Religious and Traditional Healers Organization (SARTHO) has decided to drop all its workshops that were scheduled for 2021 and further urged members to obey and abide by government’s COVID-19 regulations.

SARTHO highlighted that it was aware that some of its members have completed their training as required but were unable to host welcoming ceremonies due to COVID-19 regulations.

The body urged those affected to touch base with their local health promoters to collect or apply for their certificates in line with their training.

Shadrack Mathume Maelane, SARTHO Chairperson, advised members to refer their patients to local clinics in case they suspected or identified symptoms COVID-19.

The structure added that it was 100 percent behind government’s plan to stop the spread of COVID-19 and urged for its members to vaccinate and work together with the Department of Health to avoid loss of life due to neglect and ignorance basic health protocol.

Regina Mankge, SARTHO Secretary, expressed concerns that they were aware of people impersonating traditional and religious healers, an act which endangered the life of the society and also painted a bad picture of traditional and religious healers in general.

The structure’s deputy chairperson, Morose Mathunye, pleaded with members to contact the local health promoters (Kobela) for their certificates and cards because all workshops have been suspended until further notice.
