An 82-year-old woman has gone to an initiation school in an attempt to avoid more bad luck.

The woman who cannot be named because her church does not allow initiation, went to the initiation in October after she started getting her periods at the age of 76.

Her menstruation ordeal was reportedly followed by the sudden deaths of her seven sons.

This was after she went to hospitals for check-ups and suspected cancer but she was told she did not have any.

The initiation school owner from Botshabelo Mamoya Rakauoane said women circumcision has been practiced for many years but she has never seen an elderly woman being initiated.

She told Daily Sun: "I was involved in two car accident in less than ten years. Every night, I would have dreams and visions about women initiation school. But because of my religious believe and age, I declined to go.

When I was 76 years old, I had my periods again after a menopause when I was 50 years old.

I suspected cancer and went for medical check-ups but there was no cancer and I was discharged."



She said the menstruation later stopped after she had consulted a local traditional healer who told her that, in order to avoid more misfortunes in future, she must be circumcised.

"But I hated the idea of being circumcised even though I know it is part of my family culture.

My sons died from unknown illness while the other one died from a car accident."

She said that is now left with one daughter said through her dreams and visions, she was told that, if she wanted to save her family from more pain, she must make sure that she gets initiated before the end of this year.

"I then decided in October to obey the dreams and went to the initiation school.

The dreams and visions as well as the pains through my entire body have stopped. I am able to walk by myself again," she said.

Mamoya Rakauoane said: "Gogo's ancestors wanted her to be circumcised as it was part of her family tradition.

Women are supposed to go to the school when they are teenagers or still young and fit enough.

But when the ancestors have spoken, nothing can be done expect to do what they want to avoid bad omens and problems," she added.
