A 48-year-old woman from Honeydew, South Africa, claims that for 13 years, she has lived a life of hell at the hands of a tokoloshe, (goblin).

She says that the goblin rapes her in the presence of her husband for long hours, sometimes twice a night.

When she gets intimate with her husband, the goblin demands that she immediately has to have sleep with him as well.

The woman said that sometimes the goblin is not violent but at other times he pins her down, grabs her by the throat.

She said she wakes up tired every morning."This tokoloshe gives me no rest at night. While he is on top of me I become helpless. I'm like a drugged person. By the time I wake up, he is gone," she said.

The woman, who has three children and one grandchild, said that her life is one continuous misery.

Her body is sore all the time and she suffers from violent headaches.

She doesn't even go to the doctor any more when she doesn't feel well. "I know it is the tokoloshe that makes me sick," she said.

She said she has already tried everything, including going to sangomas (traditional healers) and phoning doctors on the radio.

"I have lived with this pain for years," she said.

The woman said a prophet told her to move out of the house where she stays with her husband because that's where the goblin is.

"But I can't afford it. I'm just a domestic worker," she said.
