Ghost Cow!

A Ghostly Accident
28/06/2004 Nelspruit - An Mpumalanga woman swears she drove over the ghost of a man who was conjured up with muti. (Ghost Cow)

Primary school teacher Mettern Maseko said she came to a screeching halt after "hitting" the man along the main road in Newscom tribal trust near White River last Tuesday morning.

When she looked back, there was nothing there.

"I could swear I drove over a man who appeared from nowhere," she said. "It happened so fast, I didn't have time to brake. When I looked in the rear-view mirror, he was gone."

She stopped and hooted for her husband, as she wasn't too far from her house.

"We looked under the car, where we found muti. There were three animal horns and black cloth tied around a small wooden drum," she said.

The police were alerted, but were too afraid to touch the muti, so they called a local inyanga, said Inspector Isaac Mnisi.

"The inyanga then took the muti and the horns away and we later heard he burned it," he said. "Luckily, the incident has not resulted in any witch hunts."

He said this is not the first report of a ghost on the main road in Newscom.

He says other motorists have reported seeing a ghost cow on the road for the past 10 years.

"About 20 motorists have died after losing control of their vehicles while trying to avoid the ghost cow," he said.

Two speed bumps have since been placed in the road to slow down traffic along the road, he said.

Since the Ghost Cow is of course dead, and not very quick, these speed bumps will be very helpfull in her effort to get her message delivered...whatever it may be!
