We were going for a drive one Sunday morning. Me, my mother and my stepfather. Just a bit of sight seeing of farms in a village called Philidelphia near Blouberg in Cape Town. I wish I never looked in that direction, because what I saw haunts me still.
We were driving passed a open farm. The grounds were just ploughed and it was just one large open field of sand. Suddenly I saw something very strange. I saw a hole in the ground, and someone was inside it, it looked like he was busy digging. When we drove passed, this little black man jumped out of the hole, and it took a few steps towards the car and then it just looked (very angry) as the car drove further away... I just sit in the backseat of the car, speachless!
Till today I can not explain this one. It looked like a dwarf or something, but it used it's forearms more than it's legs to move. It scared the daylights out of me.
In South Africa, the native culture believe in something called 'The Tokkelossie'.
They believe this Tokkelossie is a very small black man that can do witchcraft, and they are very scared of it. They also believe that the Tokkelossie wears his balls around his neck, but I am sure that is a bit overexacturated... Many people claim that they have seen this Tokkelossie, but mostly the natives. This is also the people that believes in the Sangomas (Witchdoctors). I don't know what I saw that day, could have been a Tokkelossie..., who knows. But whatever it was, it was one of the creepiest things I ever saw!
