She added: “If you look at some races in this country, such as the Britons, Indians or Westerners, they have a culture that they inculcate into their youngsters.

“They give them businesses and money so that they can have a better future but in our case, we do not have that type of culture.

“I am also pleading with the aunts and sisters who we accuse of being witches and wizards but they are there to safeguard and protect our children. We need to protect our children from drug abuse, that is why I am pleading with the chiefs as custodians of our culture to help inculcate the values of ubuntu/hunhu in our children.”
