A prophet has claimed to have saved  prostitutes leave their trade for better things.

Daily Sun reported that the prophet holds  two calabashes in his hands while sex workers queue outside his room to be healed of what some of them call an addiction.

And thanks to Sibusiso Mokoena (37) from Yeoville, in Joburg, many magoshas claimed they have turned over a new leaf.

Sibusiso said Yeoville is one of those places where there are a quite a few magoshas.

"I give them muthi that suppresses their sexual desires so they can live positive lives,"he said.

Sibusiso claimed he got the gift of healing from his ancestors and he was following in his father's footsteps.

"My father Elias is 82 and he doesn't do a lot of healing anymore but he always gives me advice," he said.

Sibusiso claimed magoshas have been visiting him since he first helped one of them in 2012.

A prostitute Maria Tema said she ended up selling her body because she couldn't get a job after coming to Mzansi from Zimbabwe in 2005.

"I hated prostitution but I had no other way to survive in a foreign land," said Maria, who now sells cigarettes, fruit and vegetables in the Joburg CBD.

Tshego Madupe (35) also claimed after Sibusiso helped her with muthi, she stopped being a magosha and started helping her friend at a salon.

Another 28-year-old woman said she went to Sibusiso after hearing about him last year.

"I wanted to stop but it was difficult.

"He gave me muthi to bath with and drink and I have not been on the streets since November."
