Residents have raised concern after a man claiming to cure black magic curses, impotency and infertility with spiritual healing has been advertising services in Hainault.

Readers got in touch with the Recorder saying they were worried people would use his methods over more conventional healthcare, and reported cards had been posted through letter boxes in Gants Hill, Barkingside and Clayhall as well.

Mr Bamba claims to be an “international spiritual healer”, with 21 years experience, who can give advice for “all your problems” regarding marriage, love, jobs and exams.

Mr Bamba also claims to cure men with impotency and women with fertility problems.

“If you are suffering from black magic or any evil cases he will get rid of them,” his card states.

A Hainault resident, who did not wish to be named due to fears that he may be cursed, said he didn’t want “all people of faith to be tarred with the same brush”.

The Recorder called the spiritual healer, who is based in East Ham, to see what his cures would be for impotency.

Mr Bamba at first appeared confused, asking: “What is impotency?”

After being told he advertised this on his card, he said we would have to make an appointment.

“If you come to my office I can take a reading from your hand, and we can find out what the problem is.

“It may be black magic.”

When we explained we were calling from a newspaper, and wanted to ask some questions for an article, Mr Bamba became edgy.

“I have many years training from Africa,” he explained.

He said he was in the middle of a prayer and he would have to go, he would call us back later.

After waiting for Mr Bamba to ring, we again got in touch. He was friendly until we said we were from the Recorder.

“I am at someone’s house, doing a prayer to get rid of a spirit,” he said tersely, hanging up.

A Redbridge Council spokeswoman said it had not had any reports about Mr Bamba.

She added: “We advise that people with medical problems visit their GP regarding health matters first.”

Faith healers have attracted controversy in the press for claiming to kill animals such as alligators and chameleons to get rid of alleged curses.
