AIDS Hospital Appeal
South Africa - September, 2010
ICKE (DI): [noise of people talking indistinctly in background]
Hello. I’m standing here in the Kalahari region of South
Africa, and behind me is the home of the great Zulu Sanusi shaman
Credo Vusamazulu Mutwa. And here is his and his wife Virginia’s
great dream. It is to open a hospital to help people in this area who
have AIDS and other diseases where they’re not getting
treatment and in so many ways are being treated like lepers in their
is also in this area, and indeed in this country, an epidemic of
child abuse, and this is also designed to help to heal those
children, and help to give them their lives back.
of course, as you can see, so much has already been done. There’s
buildings being worked on here all the time. But Credo and Virginia
need money to finish the job so they can serve this very impoverished
and Virginia have had this as their dream for so many years. I’ve
known them both for a long, long time, and he’s always talked
to me. ‘Mr. David, I want to open a hospital to help my
people.’ And here he is, coming up to ninety years of age, and
you can see that somewhat seventy percent of that dream has already
been realized, but they need more money to finish the job and get
this open as soon as possible.
is one of the typical rooms, private rooms, where people can come to
be healed in mind and body. There’s a bathroom, private
bathroom, toilet and everything.
these kind of facilities are not known in this area. This is new. And
it’s an attempt to treat people with AIDS who are being
stigmatized, who have been cast out from their own communities simply
because they’re ill, and treat them with dignity and care and
love. It’s ... [pause] It’s a fantastic project. Please
support it. And here’s Credo telling you why we need to do
what would you say to people looking at this, all over the world, of
why they should give money to make this dream a reality?
MUTWA (CM): Honorable friends, money is the saber, the sword, by
which you can win many battles. Honorable friends, money is the
shield, the helmet, and the breastplate to fight for the side of
do need help to complete this thing as quickly as possible. We are
fighting a war. We are fighting a battle against a pitiless and barely
seen enemy. AIDS has got to be stopped in South Africa. AIDS has got
to be stopped worldwide. Do you think, do you think by feeding the
python of conspiracy with the bodies of our children, then the
python, having eaten, would leave you
alone? Think again, mates. Think again, friends. You don’t feed
the devil and... without him turning upon you in the future.
DI: And you want to make a difference here, using those medicines that
make a difference.
CM: Yes, I do. I am learned in distilling medicine. In fact, there are
groups of South Africans, in South Africa, firms which made thousands
of dollars out of my knowledge. I want that knowledge back to save my
people. I want that knowledge back to give it to our people where
declare a war on Africa. You will need Africa. You will need this
continent. Africa has got shining gifts for the rest of humanity,
which humanity refuses to listen, to recognize or listen to.
herbs are capable of keeping an AIDS patient alive for a long, long
time. Not only that, we African people have the knowledge not only to
heal the human body but also to heal the human mind.
fight AIDS even with energies that come from under the earth. The
structure which my wife calls ‘Ndumba’
is actually a special
hut which draws energy from underground to heal a human body. Inside
that hut there will be not beds, but hammocks, which are very good in
treating sick people.
the knowledge that was left to us from the... our ancestors, we shall
bring it to bear here and the world, skeptical though it may be, will
see that knowledge in action.
