Ugandan, Julius Mamba Sebange graduated with degree in civil Engineering in Makerere. After practicing as engineer for about five years, he realised his calling in witchcraft.
Based in Gweru, Sebange is the most sought after traditional healer in Zimbabwe and minting millions of shillings.
The 49-year-old Ugandan national Julius Mamba Sebange has been practising as traditional healer at the age of 10. He reportedly had to abandon his profession as an Engineer to pursue his calling as a healer.
“I graduated with a degree in Civil Engineering in Makerere University in Uganda. After graduating, I practiced as an engineer only for five years in Botswana. It is then that I realised I needed to heed to my calling. I registered as a healer with the Dingaka Tsa Setso Association of traditional healers in Botswana and I started practising right away,” Sebange told Bulawayo reporter.
Sebange moved to Zimbabwe in 2004 after getting married to his Zimbabwean wife Priscilla Sebange whom he met in Botswana. They initially stayed in Bulawayo before moving to Gweru which is Priscilla’s home town.
Due to the demand of his services, Sebange who stays in Ascot suburb had to acquire an office in town where he meets with his ever-increasing clientele.
“After moving to Zimbabwe I ventured into the transport industry since I had four commuter omnibuses. I also registered with Zimbabwe National Traditional Healers Association because I needed to practice as a traditional healer. Since then I have had clients flocking in from all over Zimbabwe,” said Sebange.
Professor S J, as Sebange is known, says he is able to summon ancestors of his clients so that the client can have a one-on-one conversation with his ancestors.
“At times I go to the mountain and summon ancestors belonging to the client. The client can then have time to talk to his/her ancestors if brave enough. Sometimes the ancestors show up in the form of a snake or a lion. Sometimes the ancestors refuse to come at all,” he said.
