Vangethongo greets family members at her home in Constantia after returning from  her "red" ceremony in Pondoland. Her neice, Talia May Barrett, 4, and nephew, Jasper Barrett, 7, check out her new garb. She is now dressed in red and will wear goat skins until they start falling off, symbolizing her readiness for the final ceremony when she will become  a practising sangoma.
