I live in SA and although I haven't seen it myself, I know two people that claim they have...
One was a black girl I went to school with (Zinchle) she said that you are not supposed to say the word Tokoloshe repeatedly out loud otherwise he
comes to see you in the night. Anyway her & her sister, obviously non believers at the time were defiantly chanting his name and that night she awoke
to strangled noises coming from her sister. She looked over and apparently the tokoloshe had his hands on her sisters throat trying to kill her. She
screamed and her parents came running and switched on the light...apart from marks on her sisters neck their was no sign of the bastard. Naturally, I
asked her for a description of the creature and she said that it was a half a meter tall, very old black man, with red eyes and a long beard.
The other witness was my Italian friend's mom - although she didn't call it the tokoloshe (she had no idea what it was), she described the exact
same entity, but it did not hurt her - it was just a sighting in her home.
I never understood the bed on bricks thing myself - I would think a large knife under the pillow might be wiser.
