Two sisters and their families live across from one another.

But an overactive tokoloshe was not stopped from attacking both families.


Nkele Shuping (47) and her sister Joyce (55) from Swanville on the West Rand, are hoping for things to get better, but they seem to be getting even worse!

They explained to Daily Sun that they’ve been living with the tokoloshe for two weeks. They tried to get help from a sangoma and it got more angry.

Nkele said when the tokoloshe began throwing stones on top of her roof she assumed it to be neighbours and called the police.

She then realised it was a tokoloshe when the stone landed inside her house.

The stone vanished when Nkele was on her way to see a sangoma with the stone inside a plastic bag.

“When I went back it was near my bed,” said Nkele.

The sisters stay opposite each other.

This tokoloshe began terrorising the older sister too, burning things around the house, splashing water everywhere, and stealing.

The tokoloshe makes two cups of coffee, makes a bed with two pillows and even pees in the bath.

On Monday it locked one of her grandkids inside a room and stole the key said Joyce.

“We only sleep for two hours a night because we’re always up to see what damage it might have caused,” said Joyce.

Joyce Shuping is in shock as she is witnessing a Tokoloshi destroy a house she built when she was a hard working domestic worker.

“This thing wants us dead. It even wrote my name using dishwashing liquid.”

Now, Joyce, her daughter and the grandchildren live in fear.

She said yhe charges of the izangoma they wanted to get were, R30 000 and the other R4 000!

“I can’t afford this,” she said.

Joyce explained that they’ve tried throwing salt around the house but things get worse.

“Now the tokoloshe is even going to the outside room. On Tuesday morning it started burning curtains in one of the rooms,” she said.

Joyce’s daughter Cindy (32) said seeing her kids so scared is stressful for her.

“I just want it to end and for us to go back to our lives again,” said Cindy.

The angry tokoloshe is said that it even terrorised the SunTeam.

Said the SunGirl: “When I got inside the house I didn’t feel scared.

“As we went into one of the bedrooms I felt my blood rushing through my veins and my head felt cold, as if we’d just entered a freezer.”

“During an interview the tokoloshe splashed powder soap all over the kitchen floor.

“This is how they live. They’re waiting to see what stunt this tokoloshe will pull next,” said the SunGirl.

Sangoma Joseph Dungamanzi explained to Daily Sun what the family the family needs, which is to get someone to perform ukufemba, an African exorcism which is done using a ndau ancestral spirit.

Dungamanzi said once this is done, the evil person who’s behind this will be caught and whatever the family chooses to do with that information will be up to them.

“They must ensure that they perform this in both houses to avoid the possibility of it jumping to another house,” said the wise Dungamanzi.
