Africa Creates: Who has more Lightning Bolts than Zeus?
Vered Ehsani

What has a dietary preference for human brains? Forget zombies and listen in! Village mythology comes to life as Timothy Kiprop Kimutai shares stories he heard from his grandmother. Watch out: African paranormal creatures come with a bite.

In this interview, we learn about the chebakerit, a creature that looks like a cross between a hyena and a bear, but with a peculiar preference for brains. Large talking snakes and security bees inhabit the world around the village. Or how about the chemarinda, a humanoid with a tail and a nasty habit of devouring its victims?

All this and more. Just take a listen on  to the interview below or hop over to Artist First.
