SKEEM Saam actress, Oratile Maitisa, has answered her ancestral calling and is now a sangoma.

The actress, who plays Eunice on the SABC1 drama series, posted a series of videos and pictures on social media from her graduation ceremony.

She accepted her calling three years ago.

“I knew I had a calling for years. I started seeing signs from a young age, but didn’t understand what I had to do,” she said.

Oratile said her gift was helping people.

“I went to initiation school to become a sangoma and to help people with their daily challenges. My gift is to help, heal and make people aware of their roots and culture,” said Oratile.

She said the journey was difficult, but she stayed strong.

Oratile said she was grateful to people from Skeem Saam for supporting her.

“It was tough and almost seemed impossible, but I persevered because initiation needs patience. The journey isn’t a walk in the park. I didn’t take a break from Skeem Saam. They supported me from the beginning until I finished. They made it easy for me and I appreciate that a lot,” said Oratile.

She said she will officially be working as a sangoma from now on.
