This paper examines the practices of traditional healing and how they are integrated or rejected by the African Independent Churches (AICS)in Botswana. The paper argues that in spite of some doubtful elements of rejection in the AICS, there is a large degree of integration of healing in the AICS Botswana. The story of this paper is based on a long discussion with a prophet healer who does not have a clear view of his position with respect to integrartion of healing in the AICS and traditional healing.
