Shocking! Zodwa Wabantu shows off her ‘Mamlambo’ the God that she worships – Video
According to the source, if you do not comply with the demands of the Mamlambo, the consequences can be dire. In some cases, children can even inherit their parents’ servitude of uMamlambo.
Zodwa’s most recent post in which she jokingly claims to be introducing her followers to her Mamlambo has resulted in a series of polarising comments. Those who understand that the entertainer was just joking have expressed their amusement at the post with comments such as “Can I also have one.. angifuni ukuzi roba” [I don’t want to sell myself short] and “it’s good to see Mamlambo once again besengiyibuza sowashonaphi [I was wondering where she had disappeared to]. How long is she? I need to see her live mani Zodwa.”
Others could not get over their own fear of snakes, while some felt the concept uMamlambo was not something to joke about.“The way I am scared of snakes, even watching you play with it freaks me out,” said one user, while another added “Udlala kakbi ngoku mtase, yini ndiyoyika kangaka inyoka,” [you’re not playing fair now, why am I so afraid of snakes?”]
The video seems to be from a recent visit to Soweto’s popular Vilakazi Street where one can expect to encounter pythons and a range of other fascinating things.

“Hi guys, I’m just waking up my Mamlambo, this is my mlambo, I get anything I want because of her. Don’t sell yourself short guys,” said Zodwa speaking in a mix of IsiZulu and English.
The uMamlambo is a water deity in South African mythology that is believed to be the “goddess of rivers.” Those who claim to have seen it have described it as a large snake-like creature.
A young, spiritually gifted South African who spoke to The Citizen about the concept of uMamlambo on condition of anonymity explained that it is essentially a deity you worship and sacrifice things to (as part of ukuthwala) in order to obtain and keep money and power. The demands of the deity in exchange for these things can range from things like human sacrifices to pacts to never having children.
According to the source, if you do not comply with the demands of the Mamlambo, the consequences can be dire. In some cases, children can even inherit their parents’ servitude of uMamlambo.“So basically what I know about ukuthwala is that it comes in different forms. There are people who thwala for the sake of getting rich, for the sake of their kids being successful, fast-growing business, cash in transit heist and so forth,” said the source.
