Gulf Harbour flowerpot has "sex change ions"

Thu 3 Dec 2009 In: New Zealand Daily News View at NDHA

A thief who took a 'cursed' flowerpot from a psychic medium's Gulf Harbour garden risks their gender slowly changing, he tells the Rodney Times. At du Plooy says the terrecotta pot contains his grandmother's ashes. She was a sangoma or witchdoctor who died in Africa aged 93, he claims. "She has cursed a one kilometre area around the pot with sex-change ions – meaning men may gradually change to women and vice versa. Dumping the contents won't break the spell, he says, only its return," reports the paper.
