But when we went to the traditional healer and he didn't confirm anything he just gave me something to drink pastors tried to pray for me but dololo help I ended telling mom not to waste her money fixing things that can not be Fixed I should just accept whatever that was going on with meI accepted my fate. Oh another thing i heard that my grandfather was a witch rumours were " he had the baboon that he used as his bicycle at night" those were the rumours i heard i even asked my mother about it but she shut me outthen I decided my mind my own business Mother did manage to get me a school KwaHlabisa and I was going to stay with her brother and his wife...
