Title: SD1-294
Issue Date: 22 Sep 2015
Description: Genre: Medicine/huru: Wora Ngangene, grandfather (born 1935) and elder brother of Mama Yuli, where we record. Here Wora tells about his very own (not inherited) 'huru ndosa botane' "(huru sex organ disappears"). Curse: make a small bow with its "rope" made of red thread, twisted. Hang. Symptom: sex organ disappears. Cure: He twists a white thread to a "rope". Then a woman of mature age must help. She knits the thread to her pubic hair, after which it is torn off. After that he places that thread on the patient's organ. After which the patient can pee again. (I wonder if the treatment is same for men and women? forgot to ask.. damn it. Wora says the patient must be cured within three days, otherwise she/he will die. It, the huru, had happened to a person from Lio that he cured. Wora does not want to do it on the island, because it is too harsh.
