The actress went on a three-month long initiation and upon her return, shared a meaningful message, accompanied by an image of herself and one of her sangoma acquaintances.
Part of the captioned image read:
"The hardest months of my life. Emotionally, physically and spiritually. Away from my home, my kids, my mother! But I’m a soldier, a powerful spirit. I’m connected in the most amazing way to God,uMveliqandi, Abathembu, my ancestors. I know who I truly am. I am stripped of the worldly things I thought defined me, made me."
Lerato is the second actress we know who has become a sangoma. Generations: The Legacy actress, Letoya Makhene is also sangoma, and once palm read Phat Joe's love life on television.
Although not a sangoma, former Skwatta Kamp member Bozza is now a prophet who went through a rite of passage for a year at the All Nations Apostolic Church in Nigel, east of Johannesburg.
