Some doctors in South Africa are in a state of shock after they found a snake in the belly of a woman they had presumed she was pregnant.
According to a source, the lady identified as Maria Tsotetsi,49, of Vosloorus, East of Johannesburg, went to the hospital and complained about the rate at which her stomach was protruding.
The doctor’s decided to run tests and scan on her only to discover that she was carrying a snake in her belly and that was the cause of her illness.
After the revelation, the woman blamed a certain man of God as the one responsible for putting the snake in her womb.
Explaining how it all happened and why she believes the man of God is the one responsible for all that she was going through she said:
“They said I had lost a lot of blood and I needed surgery,” she said. But the family was too poor to pay for surgery and nothing happened after that. Nurses gave her medicine, and she was released from the hospital a few days later.
In an attempt to help, Tsotetsi, her then-boyfriend, took her to a bishop to cure her.
According to Tsotetsi, the bishop told her to remove all of her clothes and he gave her muthi, a herbal medicine.
“The muthi was covered in white and brown snakeskin. The Bishop said this would cure me,” she said.
A few days later she became sick and her teeth began to fall out.
“I think the muthi made me lose my teeth,” she said. After the visit to the bishop, her boyfriend of 14 years left her and she was unable to find love since then.
“I want him to come and remove the snake, which he placed in my stomach. I believe that the bishop is responsible for this.” Tsotetsi said.
Traditional healer Ntsimbi Ngema said: “This kind of thing is done by jealous lovers. There is no way Maria could have a new boyfriend because he could die after having sex with her”
