Local herbalist/traditional healer Sekuru Kamwelo Banda plans to build a rehabilitation centre for drug addicts worth $US500 000.
The Mail and Telegraph report that the famous healer last week visited high-density suburbs to counsel the youths. Said Banda:
I am worried that great talent can go to waste because of drug abuse. Besides being a traditional healer, I am also a proponent of a socially stable society where our youths are of physical and mental wellbeing and healthy enough to participate meaningfully in the economic prosperity of the country.
The crime rate also increases because these drug abusers end up stealing so that they can fund their habits.
Sekuru Banda rose to fame through his claim to have the ability to help thieves recover their stolen goods. He has a surgery in Hillside where receives patients from across the world.
