Former PSL star, Clifford Mulenga, has reportedly admitted to having used the acts of witchcraft during his playing days.
During his time in Mzansi, Mulenga played for no less than 10 clubs, having been at Bidvest Wits, Bloemfontein Celtic, SuperSport United and Jomo Cosmos, among other teams.
Mulenga has been quoted by Zambian website ZamFoot admitting to having used ‘juju’ during his playing days.
As defined by Wikipedia: Juju is a spiritual belief system incorporating objects, such as amulets, and spells used in religious practice, as part of witchcraft in West Africa especially the people of Nigeria.
“Juju is juju, you see it is an African thing that we have grown up within our traditions, we have grown up knowing that we need to protect ourselves from outside dangers. In my experience as a footballer, we have done these rituals at my former clubs as a team and I as well used to carry some other stuff from home which I believed would help me play better,” Mulenga reportedly said.
The 32-year-old, who has been without a club since parting ways with Jomo Cosmos in 2018, says he was once at a club that was strong on juju where their coach insisted on the use of juju irrespective of one’s religion, as he believed that it would make the team to win matches.
