A TWITTER user has warned others about muthi that is smeared on money.
He said if people got this type of money, to ensure the muthi loses its power they should not put it in their wallets.
Twitter user @Hlanga_o said he was given a R10 note that refused to leave his wallet. He said it had blood stains. His elders then advised him to throw away the wallet with everything inside.
Never take money from person directly to your wallet. Always put is somewhere first 🔐🔐.

After he warned social media users, others started sharing similar experiences.

Bongi waka Mtsweni wrote: “In 2017, I fell pregnant and bought a car. This old granny asked me to buy her snuff. When I was walking back to my car to get the cash, my aunt came running towards me and said: ‘Don’t you dare’. She gave an example of all my cousins who were doing well and then this granny suddenly became close with them. All of them don’t work, failed marriages.”
Lebo Maile wrote: “I don’t want to believe this but there is a lady I work with. I used to be able to save R2 000 every month and then she loaned money from me. Ever since then, I can’t save even R10. I go broke every month.”
Traditional healer Majoko Hlongwane said people used money to bewitch others.
“They can take your cash and curse you with it so you cannot keep money. Victims need to be cleansed by a sangoma to wash the curse away,” she said.
