Fun Read

Many Basotho, at some stage in their lives, believe in the existence of thokolosi, or poltergeist in English, and that the thokolosi is controlled by some village woman who has supernatural powers or who can converse with the spirits. It's always a woman, and never a man. So it was quite natural, under the circumstances, for Basotho to take a meteor shower for ghost activity, and proceed with the sprinkling of holy water and other protective measures.
