Macks, who has starred on some of the biggest shows in the country, including Egoli, Isibaya, Rhythm City and Skeem Saam, told TshisaLIVE that his calling doesn’t require him to thwasa (a trainee to become a sangoma (traditional healer).

“I went through a change. I am a very sensitive person. I am in touch with my ancestors. I am my ancestor’s child. When my ancestors want me away from the wild and jungle of the industry, they take me away from it because they see that I am going crazy or could die. They share me with this world.”

“I have for many years had the calling but mine is different in that I have not had to be initiated or go thwasa. I minister through my talents and acting. Those close to me know about it because they see that I am different,” – Macks Papo told the publication.

Sending love to all these young women(sic),” The Queen actress Rami Chuene said.

While television personality Anele Mdoda shared: “Women are the biggest protectors of rapists and molesters. This is why uncles, fathers, older brothers and cousins can rape sisters in the same house. It’s not that no one sees, it’s because males are constantly protected. Victims have had to self heal years on. Askies Cheryl.”

Actress Mona Skenjana also took to social media to share her views, saying: “What happens when the witness isn’t strong? Do we still rally behind them? Do we still believe them and not doubt them? Why must a woman be a rock to be heard? Trauma breaks the spirit, not all of us are able to carry it well. #OmotosoTrial”
