Burglar in Oscar Pistorius's bathroom makes clean getaway...finally!

26 February 2013, 15:00

Another alleged burglar hiding out in Oscar Pistorius's bathroom since the morning of Valentines Day has made a clean getaway after finding the coast clear.

 In an interview conducted at a secret location by a crack journalistic team of a local news channel the burglar admitted that he was indeed in the star athletes house but was only looking to steal one of the athletes running blades as his real occupation is as a gardener and he tends to the lawns of the residences in the posh gated estate.

 He needed the blade because he saw in the news how everyone was talking about how good it was for Oscar as he mowed down the competition with it, and he thought he will use it to trim the grass and hedges of neighbouring homes as he can't afford new equipment due to the recession.

 During the interview, in which his face is kept hidden and his identity secret, the alleged intruder, gives and in depth account of his version of events on that fateful morning.

 He claims that just as he got into the bathroom through the window, which he managed to climb up to using a ladder conveniently placed there and also passing two dogs that were on the ground next to the ladder, he heard noises coming from the bedroom. He then ducked into the shower cubicle and was lucky it had tinted glass so he wasn't seen. He claims that there was another burglar in the house that was trying to steal a cricket bat and the owner was very upset about it because he could hear screaming and someone saying, ‘drop the bat, drop the bat’.

 Next thing, through the tinted shower door, he saw shadows in the bathroom, and he noticed as the other burglar was trying to get a way he dropped the cricket bat and ran into the toilet. Then he saw the most shocking thing, there was a man like shape standing in the bathroom with no legs and thought it must be a tokoloshe, and he knows what it looks like because the farm where he comes from in Nkandla, KZN there is a lot of tokoloshe. Next thing he saw the tokoloshe pull the gun and shoot into the toilet many shots.

 “I froze same time in the shower, my heart was racing, I was so scared, I never saw tokoloshe shoot anyone before......eish! Now I dunno what to do, next thing tokoloshe has legs and is kicking toilet door, and breaking it with bat. Then bathroom is so full of police now and so much noise, one policeman even opened the bathroom door and just looked at me and chose to ignore me, but I was standing so still maybe he never see me. I waited and waited. Every day I could see the sun rise and set and forgot how many days passed. Lots of people coming and going and no one saw me, didn't know what explanation I'll give and who would believe me. I didn’t want to be blamed for shooting the other burglar. I only survived on water from the shower head all those days. I feel very lucky I wasn't shot by the tokoloshe but I feel very sorry for the other burglar. I also feel very lucky the police didn't find me. Sometimes I know the police they drink too much and they don't see anyone. Eventually everything was quiet and no one was coming so I said it must be safe for me to escape now, but I waited for the next morning because I know the tokoloshe won't come in the daytime. Now I save money to buy my own blades."

This story was inspired in the writer by a visiting tokoloshe as she sat in the toilet!
