Khekheke Sangoma First Fruits Ceremony

Khekheke Sangoma First Fruits Ceremony

Khekheke: Sangoma First Fruits Ceremony.

Khekhekhe, a great South African sangoma, a legend in his time and descendant of the great Zulu leader Dingiswayo, the mentor of King Shaka, passed away in 2014. Being a family man with 14 wives and over 100 children, Khekhekhe had many people trained to take over from him.


So on the 23rd of February each year, his family still holds the annual first fruits ceremony which was done by earlier Zulu Kings. A feast is held and several of Khekheke’s adult children perform this ceremony at his homestead overlooking the Tugela River. Many sangomas are invited to attend.


Date. 23rd February each year.
