It's like becoming a rabbi. Get two or three sangomas to point and say "his muti is the bees knees".OT but how long does it take to become a Sangoma? Is there formalised training or on the job, watch a pro type of hands on training?
Sick is one thing, getting a month off for being tormented by your ancestors is quite another.Mountain out of molehill. If you are sick whether you go to a doctor or a sangoma you can get a sick note. Labour laws and employment contracts are clear on the rules regarding sick leave.

What happened to him, was the employer finally able to get rid of him?We had a guy here by my work not showing up for work or showing up late for work an a regular basis. He was counselled, given written warnings eventually charged and dismissed. The employee went to the CCMA and still lost the case. He then went to the Labour court. The Labour court then instructed the company to re-employ the guy. The court said, "How can a company dismissed a employee for time keeping! he needs to feed his wife and kids" He came back to work and was paid a full years back pay.
