Pule Motshabi, 49, who walks without clothes in the streets of Turflaagte Kasi in Mangaung, Free State of South Africa, says he is punished by his ancestors for stealing the native doctor eight years ago.
Pule Motshabi, who admitted to stealing people by trapping them, was never caught, but the native doctor’s theft caused him a life of suffering, he added that he wanted to pay back.
The South African man who worries about the death of his native doctor that he stole is likely to have to spend the rest of his life being punished by the ancestors, told DailySun Zambia;
“I have looked for him everywhere. I am like a mad man. I sometimes walk down the street naked and only discover later that I have no clothes on,” he said. “I really need to ask for forgiveness and pay him back.”
Mojimang Shupping, Pule’s aunt who told Daily Sun that it hurts her to see her nephew walking around naked, said; “Sometimes people beat him up because they think he is a witch”.
“I have taken him to many native doctors, but they say the only thing that will set him free is paying back the money.”
A native doctor named Rakouana Mamoya who also shared his thought on the incident, said; “If the native doctor has passed away, the man must search for his family to pay back the money and let the family ask the ancestors to forgive him.
“There is no native doctor who can help him. Only the ancestors of that native can help him.”
