‘TOKOLOSHES’ are having s3_x with female teachers at a school in Zimbabwe’s eastern Manicaland province, a state-run newspaper has claimed.
The Manica Post reported that the attacks by the tokoloshes started at Chishuma Primary School in Odzi last June and are ongoing.
Two female teachers confirmed the attacks and said a pastor from a local church had conducted prayers to try to get to the bottom of the drama. He did not succeed, apparently.
“Mysterious human-like objects, believed to be tokoloshes are allegedly having forced s3_xual intercourse at night with female teachers at Chishuma Primary School in Odzi in a real-life drama whose script reads like folklore plucked from Gothic literature,” the Manica Post said. The head of the Zimbabwe National Traditional Healers’ Association George Kandiero told the paper: “The solution comes when the people affected find a genuine traditional healer who can cleanse that.”
Tokoloshis have been reported before, often in connection with money-making enterprises.
In 2014, a Mutare MP was forced to deny publicly that a tokolosh had been found at his business premises. Three years earlier, the Chronicle said that the demand for tokoloshes (some of them imported from South Africa) was “outstripping supply” in Bulawayo and the eastern city of Mutare.
