Prophet Robert Malambe, a faith healer, in the room where he sees clients at his home in Lomahasha in the Lubombo Region. He claims he can heal snakebite victims with prayer and traditional medicine made from plants. Religious and traditional healers are often the first port of call for victims of snakebite for reasons of belief, as well as proximity to health services and cost. A single vial of antivenom costs approximately ZAR 1500 (GBP 78), and as many as 25 may be needed depending on the species of snake.
