Cops flee from station as family dumps goblin (Zimbabwe)
Bulawayo 24 (Zimbabwe) ^ | January 17, 2014 | Mafu Sithabile

Posted on 01/25/2014 2:20:08 AM PST by Stoat

A family from Bulawayo's Nketa 7 suburb dumped its tenant's "goblin" at the Tshabalala Police Station, sending cops fleeing in different directions.

The incident occurred at about 8 pm on Wednesday.

A family that claimed a lodger owned the goblin brought it to the station in a suitcase.

"We heard some screaming from the charge office and most officers who had knocked off rushed to see what was happening. At first everyone gathered around the suitcase, wanting to see what was inside," said a cop.

The officer said a traditional healer who had come with the family opened the suitcase and a weird looking creature jumped out of a bottle that was filled with blood.

"No one told anyone it was time to run. One minute, the charge office was full, the next, it was empty. I think some people went out through the windows because we could not all have fitted through the door. Fat cops and slim cops all ran for their lives screaming," said the cop.

Police officers gave differing versions about how the goblin looked. Some said it looked like am snake with the head of a dog and others said it was a dog with scales like a pangolin.

They all agreed that it smelt terribly.

The traditional healer is said to have overpowered the goblin and burnt it.

Contacted for comment, Bulawayo deputy police spokesperson Assistant Inspector Bhekimpilo Ndlovu confirmed the incident.

"We are handling a case whereby a 34 year-old Emakhandeni man was brought to one of our police stations by members of the community following witchcraft suspicions. It is however, too early to conclude that it was indeed an act of witchcraft.

"However, the intelligence that we have gathered suggests that some criminal syndicate could be operating in a similar fashion in an attempt to trick people into parting ways with their money all in the name of cleansing their homes. We would like to urge people to be extra vigilant as we continue with our investigations," said Asst Insp Ndlovu.

It certainly explains Obamacare, as well as pretty much everything that’s happened at the Federal level since President Bush left office. “sigh”

Absolutely true. It’s amazing how an administration as horrific as Zero’s can make some disappointing ones seem like “the good old days” by comparison. “sigh”

That object is probably a National Treasure in the lands that the photo was taken in. How absolutely, profoundly depressing.

Check it out Drummie, it's the 'black magic football' (minus the shrunken baboon head, of course) described in Richard Dooling's White Man's Grave.

A read I highly recommend, BTW. Good satirical contrasts.

Sharp observers, those cops.

The traditional healer is said to have overpowered the goblin and burnt it.

For all the good that's going to do.

Probably a tokoloshe. The really funny thing is what the blacks do with their beds. Place cinder blocks under the legs. Elevates the bed to where you need a running start to get up onto it. Hilarious when they knock it off its perch. Scream... Crash... Funny stuff.

Forgot to mention, they think the tokoloshe can not jump, hence the bed elevation.

Not trying to make this racial, but have you ever watched David Blaine do his street magic?

Most of the blacks he encounters will react in the same way when he does something they can’t grasp. They always scatter in all directions immediately yelling, grabbing their crotches and making weird ‘grunt-like’ noises. Then they slowly return one at a time to try and figure out what just happened.

Two of my most memorable reactions are “Mah, you ain’t right” when he bent a quarter with his teeth and “How you did that?” the time he ‘magically’ turn a dollar bill into a hundred dollar bill.

Funny stuff.

Judi Dench wrote about performing Shakespeare in Africa, and she said the African audiences were fascinated by Macbeth, because, they said, it was about an Englishman who was afraid of ghosts and witchcraft.

With family names such as this, I don't fault them for not knowing how to read cursive. (or maybe they misread the nurse's sursive on the birth certificate.)
