IN HER life, gogo has never even believed that a tokoloshe exists but attacks by a short creature, with long black hair, have shocked her into changing her mind.
THE TOKOLOSHE COMES AT NIGHT AND SLAPS, CHOKES AND TOUCHES HER.
“I’ve never had a tokoloshe problem before,” said the 64-year-old gogo from Katlehong, Ekurhuleni.
“I found it hard to believe that these things even existed.”
But the short creature, looking like a man, with very long hair, had made her think again.
“It only wears black underwear and it doesn’t have nipples. It’s just flat,” she said.
She now believed it was the same tokoloshe that was harassing her son, who died when he was 33 years old.
“The tokoloshe terrorised my son for three years until he died in a car accident.”
She said the creature visited her every week, with the last attack on Wednesday, 7 December.
Speaking to Daily Sun that when it started touching her, she thought it was a wet dream – especially as she had not had sex for years.
“But it kept happening, and when I was wide awake,” she said, adding that in July she asked a sangoma to help, but the tokoloshe only took a few days off before it came back again.
She said that she had sprinkled salt all over the house many times, but this was pointless.
She even sent her granddaughters to live with their mum because she believed what was happening in the house would affect them.
“It hurts me deeply to send the kids away, but they’re very young. They won’t understand,” she said.
Her sister (56) said she did not know how to help.
A neighbour (50) said she once slept over at gogo’s house because there was an unveiling ceremony at her home.
“I woke up in the middle of the night to hear her being choked. Even though I couldn’t see what was choking her, I could see that she was struggling to breathe.”
The gogo eventually woke up and told her friend what had been happening since her son died.
