Limpopo ANC Youth League secretary David ‘Che’ Selane has reportedly accused his family of bewitching him.
According to Sunday World, his mother, Mmasape Sabina Selane, had been complaining that her son had not been home in months, so she called prophets to his home in Tickyline, Tzaneen, to come and pray for him so he could go back home.
She further said people saw the prophets walking into his home and told him his family was bewitching him.
Selane, who is married and stays in Polokwane with his wife, only visits his friend in Tzaneen and not her, she told the Sunday paper.
His mother said it was not the first she had been accused of witchcraft, as she has been chased out of another church, along with other women, because of the same accusations. Mmasape added she heard her son and his wife were expecting a baby, news he has not told her.
As a result, she has told him not to come to her funeral, as she felt she was not getting the recognition she deserved from a son she raised in difficult circumstances.
When contacted for comment, the Selane leader reportedly told the paper his personal matters with his family were not for public consumption but did not deny the reports.
