Tokolosh rape interview gets thumbs-up

A Free State radio station's interview with a man who claimed he was being raped nightly by a tokolosh did not exceed the bounds of freedom of expression, the Broadcasting Complaints Commission has ruled.

In the ruling, released on Tuesday, the commission dismissed one complainant's claim that Radio OFM had made fun of a mentally ill person by broadcasting the interview.
Another complainant, identified only as R Thirtle, took interviewer Rian van Heerden to task for making light of what he said was a very real phenomenon.

"It is a fact that the Spirit Incubus rapes people in the evenings," Thirtle said.

"And it is particularly common among the black people... who follow the traditional religion of ancestor worship. But more general among black women, who are raped by the tokolosh in the evenings.


"It is not a story, it is a fact, there are thousands of witnesses to verify it. It is a very traumatic experience to be raped in the dark by a heavy thing sitting on your legs, over which you have no control. "

And to know that it is a demon that is doing it, is even worse."


The commission said it received a total of four complaints about the interview, broadcast just before 5pm on March 18.
The complainants had claimed the interview was unsuitable for children and had been broadcast at a time when large numbers of children could be expected to be listening.

However the commission ruled that the target audience of the station was not children, that those children who did hear the interview would likely not have understood it, and that it contained no grossly offensive language.

The station had also broadcast repeated warnings beforehand that listeners could find the interview offensive.
OFM suspended Van Heerden for two days after the broadcast.

And so we will continue to live in a world of contemptible name-calling, in which everyone knows the truth but no one dares speak it.

The tokoloshe is a short, hairy, dwarf-like creature from Bantu folklore. It is a mischievous and evil spirit that can become invisible by swallowing a pebble. Tokoloshes are called upon by malevolent people to cause trouble for others. At its least harmful a tokoloshe can be used to scare children, but its power extends to causing illness and even death upon the victim.

The penis of the tokoloshe is so long that it has to be slung over his shoulder. Thus sexually well-endowed, the duties of the tokolosh include making love to its witch mistress. In return, it is rewarded with milk and food. Salt must not be added to food offerings for tokoloshes. The witch keeps the tokoloshe docile by cutting the fringe of hair that hangs over its eyes.

In South Africa maids raise their beds by placing the legs of their beds on bricks to keep the occupant of the bed out of reach of the tokoloshe.

The way to get rid of him is to call in the n’anga or witch-doctor who has the power to banish him from the area.

Look out here comes the Tokoloshe
be sure you don’t annoy him
he’s evil and he’s hard to see
and you never will destroy him

He’s eaten a pebble but you know that he’s there
because strange things are occurring
there’s a rattling in the rafters
and the cat has ceased his purring

The fire’s gone out and a cold wind swirls
and a window is flapping about
then suddenly everything’s quiet
a silence as loud as a shout

You’d best call the n’anga now
he’s the only one who can save you
he’ll exorcise the tokoloshe
before he can enslave you

I vote for a two-state solution in South Africa!
