Inyanga predicts upper hand for Kaizer Chiefs ahead of Soweto Derby

Posted: 7 December 2012 Time: 23:38

It is an open secret that players and fans still believe in muti for luck – travelled all the way to Wintervelt to meet a renowned Inyanga and find out his predictions.

Both SuperSport and the SABC have shown images of soccer teams sprinkling liquids and other substances on the field before the start of matches recently, supposedly to bring them luck – or to give the other team bad luck.

Fans will also recall Sibonelo 'Matatazela' Madela, an Inyanga from Ulundi in KwaZulu-Natal, who claimed in the media that Safa owed him close to R100,000 for services provided to Bafana Bafana during the 2010 World Cup.

Madela threatened to create bad luck for Bafana if Safa failed to cough up the remaining R90,000 he was owed – and his threats hit home as Bafana went on a losing streak ...

With the Soweto Derby looming large, travelled to Wintervelt, outside Pretoria, to meet local inyanga Timothy Mkhondo, popularly known as 'Ty', to find out his predictions for the match at Soccer City tomorrow.

"It's going to be a tightly contested game ... both teams have spent a lot and brought in powerful muti for this game," Mkhondo revealed to

The Inyanga continued after throwing a second set of the bones: "There has been lot happening this week. One of the teams has consulted a powerful prophet from a certain church in Atteridgeville while the other team has brought in a man from one of the countries outside South Africa and he is booked in one of the nice hotels in Johannesburg.

"However, there could be change of plans in terms of using muti, with the other team bringing a new person a few hours before the start of the game.

"There has been some other disagreement with some officials in the other team in terms of muti, which could spell bad luck for them on Saturday ..."

The 68-year-old Inyanga predicted that even though Kaizer Chiefs will enjoy the upper hand in the Derby, the game will end in a 2-2 draw.

"I see many people at the stadium. Both teams have very good strikers. I see number 31 and number six scoring goals. I see more goals and fans will be happy with the game on Saturday."

Number 31 for Pirates is Collins Mbesuma, number six is Thandani Ntshumayelo.

Number six for Chiefs is Reneilwe Letsholonyane, while number 31 is Willard Katsande.

What is this rubbish! If this voodoo works then why has no African country ever reached the semi finals of the World Cup! Technical ability, systemic discipline and tactical execution and yes a bit of luck are what win you games not this rubbish. In that case should either team win then credit must go to these wizzards and not the players and technical team. Nxa this is hogwash
