Exams have come and gone, some students passed and others failed.
Posters of prophets all across Braamfontein claim that they can assist students pass exams.
spoke to 32-year-old prophet Moyoza in Hillbrow last week about his claims that he could assist students in passing their exams.
The Zimbabwean-born prophet said: “Failing is caused by the evil spirit like witchcraft and I can cleanse a person from that.”
A student who spoke on condition of anonymity said: “I believe there is witchcraft, I would definitely consult prophets to pass, as long as he is not a traditional healer.”
He pointed out that consulting a prophet does not mean one should not study.
However, 1st year BCom student Sibahle Mkhungo said she had heard of lots of scams about prophets and believed that one would pass exams if they studied hard.
“I don’t need a prophet to pass; I believe in God, if you ask, you will receive,” said Andiswa Mangisa, 3rd year accounting science student.
Godfrey Maja, 2nd year LLB, also believes that one has to study hard, attend lectures and sleep sufficiently in order to pass.
The Hillbrow prophet said he started prophesying at the age of 12. He started having bad dreams, then got sick and consulted a traditional healer who told him he had a calling. His consultation fee is R100 and a healing procedure is R1000 but students get a R500 discount.
Moyoza claims that he has assisted many people who have come back with gratitude.
“I help people from all walks of life, whites, Indians, students everyone,” he said.
