What is unbecoming of a practitioner of Palo Mayombe

This is a site is for the preservation of our principle rights as paleros the reason being that all ramas and all true munaso’s practice under a banner. Respect, loyalty, honor among many things a heart of acceptance and obedience. To one’s family,friends comrades and other practitioners of different kongo faiths. When we speak of other people and trying to denigrate your reputation and make you look like you are a shady practitioner it only fuels a person like me for instance to persevere.

Mayombe teaches us to have honor and loyalty and above all respect the ritual rites in your home and in the home of others. We as practitioners of Palo mayombe can only truly handle the conflicts within our own munanso and can not involve ourselves with the problems of every house that faces issues. Such as bigotry, hatred, instilling fear, defamation of character. Such is that it seems unfortunately the root of these tyrannical ideologies are based in ignorance. Fear is a liar and one must not fear these hate mongers that are out their with Contemptous lies and bantering of people who have proven time and time again with good works and respect and humbleness you can go far.Interesting fact that I found on the word Gossip from wikipedia and it states:

The word is from Old English godsibb, from god and sibb, the term for the godparents of one’s child or the parents of one’s godchild, generally very close friends. In the 16th century, the word assumed the meaning of a person, mostly a woman, one who delights in idle talk, a newsmonger, a tattler.[4] In the early 19th century, the term was extended from the talker to the conversation of such persons. The verb to gossip, meaning “to be a gossip”, first appears in Shakespeare.

The term originates from the bedroom at the time of childbirth. Giving birth used to be a social (ladies only) event, in which a pregnant woman’s female relatives and neighbours would gather. As with any social gathering there was chattering and this is where the term gossip came to mean talk of others.


You can see where the term cackling hens come into play that is not a sign of a true palero. That is a sign of a person threatened that this movement of Palo Mayombe is moving forward and we are bringing back the old and killing the new innovations of Palo Mayombe that has plagued this religion for far too long. Out there in the world people are reading this site and taking notice to what we are bringing to the table. Truth and knowledge and humbleness and respect. I know for a fact that many people out there have spoken about my person I for one will not entertain them because it goes to show you they fear you when they have to speak about you and these people know nothing of you. You can meet a person and deem them a friend but most likely they are an aquaintance that is not worthy of the term friend.  Always lead by example and good works and you will flourish but if you lead by the constant banter and propaganda that fuels petty flame wars then you who go around pointing fingers at people, What are you? But a sniveling liar and will fall on your face by your own intentions and actions.  My name is Tata Musitu Munanfinda moana filo batalla muna mayombe Saca empeno. It is a title that i wear with honor that i wear with my head up high and I will always keep true to my Munaso, my friends, my family. my wife and those that truly know me and to those who feel the need to talk about my person its ok it is hard to follow in the shadow of someone who is bringing light from the darkness.

I Laugh at the thought that these are the same people who claim to be good and upstanding people yet the walk around with the same disdain a rattlesnake has for the sun. Mayombe is a healing society we are not hating on anyone, we are not into gay bashing, we respect all and as such we expect the same in return.

So take my message for what it is worth…. (amunancuame batalla kongo ndile ndundu mayombe kisa kwambila).

Tata Musitu.  Pull out your dictionary and look it up.

    I have to say that this is well put!!!
    Personally I appreciate all of the enlightening information found here on this website. I am learning so much here, no one has taken the time to explain of of the important basic information about Palo. I felt so lost before stumbling upon this website now I’m sure I know what I know…my Padrino is a santero and a babalawo however he is not initiated in Palo because he is a gay man. He has a good heart but he discourages Palo, personally I think because there is a lot of untrustworthy people and he doesn’t want to recommend us to people he doesn’t too trust himself. This man is wonderful but has a heavy accent and sometimes I have difficulty following. So, when I came across this site I felt enlightened. I am a fast learner if taught to my understanding. So, there are many people who make negative comments about the information on this site about the information given, I feel like when you read you read and compare information and let your spirits guide you to the truth, but keep the negative comments to yourself cause if you know so much maybe you should start your own site and inform people about what you think you know, because personally I feel excited about the the mission and purpose of the site… Don’t be a kill joy!!! They are trying to help those who want to be helped and I’m one of them Keep up the good work Tata you are greatly appreciated we need you. One day I will become a great Palera and make a difference just as you have Thank You for your insight I am eager to Learn more may Zambia continue to bless you with knowledge to share with us all….
