When I stayed with my Zimbabwean friend, he told me that there were people who could cast a spell to get someone to work for them the whole night. When they woke up, they wouldn’t remember what had happened, but they would feel drained. Another Zimbabwean myth is of the dwarf spirit, who is sexually insatiable. At first you may purchase such as being, to do your bidding, but eventually instead of you dominating it, it dominates you and you can’t get rid of it. There have been serious (I think) newspaper reportages of people trying to use dynamite to blow up tikoloshes. One spiritual healer blew up herself and her client in an attempt to kill it.
