Two Missing Nurses Found At Sangoma School In PE. Two public hospital nurses were missing from January 2019.
Two public hospital nurses were missing from January 2019. The nurses have currently been discovered at a sangoma training school in New Brighton in Port Elizabeth. The nurses were found yesterday (Wednesday) when the authorities were told that the two ladies were undertaking their sangoma training at a place close to Mavuso Road.
The event has made the authorities question whether other missing people may be trainees at the sangoma training camp. Captain Andre Beetge, the police spokesperson, says one of the two nurses who is a 52-year-old nurse at the Empilweni TB Hospital was reported as missing by her daughter after missing for 23 days, the lady was last seen on 24 January and her daughter reported on February 12.
The other nurse, a 35-year-old nurse at Dora Nginza Hospital was only reported on 3 July and she went missing on 22 January. Her father was called by her employer after not coming to work for a while, the father then reported the case.
The police spokesperson says, “According to their families, they did not say where they were going or that they were going to any form of traning; they just did not return home.” The traditional healer who was training them told the police that the women were there because they wanted to. The two ladies left home without telling anyone where they heading.
“The women requested the police to inform their families that they are fine and their traditional training requires them to be left alone and have no contact with their families,” says Captain Andre Beetge. The police are working on other missing persons cases to see if the people are also in the sangoma training camps.
