Flying pots, bottles, bricks and mirrors were enough to strike fear into the hearts of the people of Duduza, near Tsakane in Ekurhuleni.
Sylvia Mahlangu said the Phura family told her last Tuesday that strange things have been happening in their house.“I didn’t take them seriously but on Saturday they asked me to come and see,” Sylvia said.
She said she could not believe her eyes.“The cupboard suddenly opened and cups and glasses started flying and floating in the air,” said Sylvia.Neighbour Tayitayi Nzolo said he brought impepho and lit it on the roof but it must have angered the tokoloshe who stabbed him with an invisible object.
He said since Saturday things have been flying around at night. On Sunday night, a child in the house said something was throwing him off his bed.They tried to take the bed outside but it wouldn’t move. When they tried to burn it with paraffin, it would not burn!When the owners of the house refused to speak to Daily Sun, residents became angry.
Mmathapelo Sigaza was attacked by the tokoloshe while talking to the SunTeam.She screamed in pain after she was beaten on the shoulder. Inyanga Ntsimb’edlezinye Ngema said that the tokoloshe might belong to someone who had died.“Now the tokoloshe is not getting its meat and is eating food in the house or from the stomachs of the residents,” he said.
