FRANCIVILLE – African football is rife with stories of superstition and ahead of the Botswana game today, a medicine man has predicted Ghana will lose 2-1.
According to online “The Voice” portal, the Zebras appear to have the gods on their side as the well-known 35-year old sangoma (or witchdoctor) has predicted. The traditional doctor, also called Snake Poison has boldly predicted a sensational victory in their Afcon debut.
The bold prediction appears to have the backing of world renowned Nigerian prophet TB Joshua, who in his sermon last Sunday forecast that the Black Stars of Ghana would lose 2-0 to a small team in the Afcon. But how did “Snake Poison” come to the conclusion?
Methodology According to “The Voice”, Snake Poison sat his underground shrine, threw the bones three times to make sure that the message he was receiving was accurate.
And then the results came: We are going to win 2-1. The bones say that at half time it will be 1-1 and there will be injuries and misunderstandings, but I dont know why. I think we are going to win the game against Ghana because they will look down upon us.
I pray that this really comes true. He was asked what would happen in their second game against Guinea on 28th January. He said: The bones say two different things, one says that we are going to win and the other says that it will be a draw. If we are going to win, we are going to struggle before scoring.
I see problems in the second game, we have a long road ahead of us, but the bones say we have potential.
News of the final group game against Mali on 1 February was not so good for Botswana as a 2-0 loss was predicted. I do not know what will happen exactly, but all I know is that we will be happy in the last moments.
