THE FAMILY couldna��t explain the disappearance of their granddaughtera��s school books.
But that was only the beginning of a life of hell for the Rahlogo family.
They did not know that a tikoloshe was taking over their house!
Madala Richard Rahlogo (72) said it has been a month of hell since the tikoloshe arrived at their house in Mamelodi East, Tshwane.
a�?My granddaughter needed her books to do her homework and we all searched everywhere without any luck,a�? he said.
He said the tikoloshe overturned the chair he was sitting on and he fell to the floor.
Then the unseen creature started ripping down the curtains.
a�?We ran outside into the street in terror,a�? he said.a�?Then we realised that whatever was vandalising our house was responsible for stealing the books as well.a�?
Since then, the creature tears down curtains, spills food and sprinkles soap powder on beds.
He said they called a sangoma to come and help them but she ran away. a�?The sangoma was beaten. She ran for her life, leaving some of her stuff behind.a�?
He said they were advised to ask prophets for help since the sangoma could not help. a�?The prophet came with water but as soon as he put it down the tikoloshe took over.
a�?It sprinkled us with that water and threw the Bible outside.a�?
a�?Maybe Sun readers can help us. Ia��m a pensioner and Ia��ve spent all my money on sangomas and prophets.a�?
Prophet Makgonatjohle Seaparo said the family needs to be cleansed.
