MALAMULELE – The SADC Unified Traditional Healers Association under the leadership of its president Dr Sylvester Hlathi, celebrated Medicine Week at the Mhinga Village outside Malamulele on Thursday 31 August 2017.
As part of the World Traditional Medicine Day, the Kruger National Park handed over some Traditional Medicinal plants from the park during the ceremony.
President of the SADC Unified Traditional Healers Association, Dr Hlathi issued a warning against the use of human body parts in traditional medicine practice.
This comes after a disturbing report last week that a corpse was reportedly exhumed from a grave and body parts were harvested in an area outside Thohoyandou. “With this event, we want to eliminate crimes that include ritual related murder and Rhino poaching”, said Dr Hlathi.
The event was attended by the Mhinga Traditional Council, the Kruger National Park management, Mozambique Government delegates, Tups sports federation and other stakeholders.
