Brilliant Tokoloshe prank!

About the tokoloshe
Tokoloshe or Tikoloshe. From the Xhosa word uthikoloshe.

The tokoloshe is a short, hairy, dwarf-like creature from Bantu folklore. It is a mischievous and evil spirit that can become invisible by swallowing a pebble. Tokoloshes are called upon by malevolent people to cause trouble for others. At it’s least harmful a tokoloshe can be used to scare children, but it’s power extends to causing illness and even death upon the victim.

The way to get rid of him is to call in the n’anga or witch-doctor who has the power to banish him from the area.

It seems incredible to most of us that there could be any truth in the legend of the tokoloshe or the power of the witch-doctor. But they do exist in some parts of Africa where superstition and legend is very much alive and well.

How many of us won’t walk under a ladder or touch wood in case something bad happens? Is that any less ridiculous? We should never underestimate the power of the mind.
