A 47-year-old woman passed away during a spiritual healing process in Lautoka yesterday, with the cause of death yet to be determined.

Police Spokesperson, Inspector Atunaisa Sokomuri said the woman told her husband she was not feeling well, after which she was taken to a healer.

“Her husband conveyed her for spiritual healing. It is alleged that during this process of spiritual healing, the woman’s pulse could not be felt, as she had passed away.

Inspector Sokomuri said the force had seen several cases of people going to witch-doctors and spiritual healers instead of going to medical facilities.

A post-mortem examination is being conducted to ascertain the cause of death.

Once again, we plead to members of the public to seek immediate Medical Attention when feeling unwell as their lives are at stake. It is always advisable to seek help from proper authorities.
