The Vanuatu Supreme Court has jailed a man from Malekula working in traditional medicine for six years for having sex with two patients.

Obed Osea had been charged with sexual intercourse without consent.

Osea was claiming that he could make a woman, who couldn't bear children, get pregnant with his custom medicine.

Osea, who is 50, also told his two 20-year-old victims that he had visions.

The court told him that he had breached the trust between him and the two women.
