Pietermaritzburg - Mountain Rise detectives are on a man hunt for a traditional healer who allegedly swindled a woman out of an undisclosed amount of money in a cash growing scam.
Captain Nqobile Gwala said the woman had just terminated her employment.
"She withdrew her termination package and on June 27 she went to Northdale in Pietermaritzburg to meet with her boyfriend and his brother who was a traditional healer.
"On arrival at the traditional healer’s residence, she was instructed to place the money in a prayer room so that her ancestors could double it," Gwala said.
"The victim did as requested and the brothers called upon the ancestors to do the necessary."
