SPINACH, green peppers, onions and carrots… all these vegetables with nutrition where grown at the school’s vegetable garden…
But the carrots started disappearing! Initially the teachers , pupils and parents at Mkhanyo Primary School in KwaMhlange, Mpumalanga, suspected the naughty boys from the villiage. But it was later revealed that it wasn’t them, but one rude tokoloshe!
Those who claim to have seen this thief of a tokoloshe described it as black and white in colour with a hairy face like that of a baboon, big round eyes and limping, as if it was missing a leg! Speaking to Daily Sun, a group of pupils coming from the school toilets say they saw the creature, adding that it went crazy and started to attack them… while eating a carrot!
It then rushed into one of the shacks at the school they say. Parents heard all about this. Theey got so frightened that they demanded that all of the children be sent home. But principal Simon Mahlangu refused. So the parents decided to release them. There were no classes from last Wednesday until Friday.
The parents then demanded a prayer meeting to be held to get rid of the carrot chomping demn. On Sunday community members, parents and the congregation of Christian Church of God all gathered at the school asking for God’s intervention. The prayer was led by the church’s Archbishop Sello Ramaekane.
The archbishop promised the parents that their children would now be safe as the power of the Almighty has already engulfed the school’s premises. “This evil thing that is causing trouble here will never come back again. Things will be back to normal and our children will continue with their lessons as usual and they will write their final year exams with no problems…”
Some parents also wanted a sangoma! “I want to see the tokoloshe with my naked eyes. Even if we have to donate money for a sangoma, I won’t hesitate,” said parent Annah Skhosana. Another parent, Angel Kekana, said the principal must remove all the shacks inside the school premises s that there will be no more space for it. A grade seven pupil, Refiloe Makuwa (13) said: “I believe the tokoloshe is gone and everything is back to normal. We will now go back to the class with or without a sangoma’s ritual.”
