Popobawa is a much-feared spirit who periodically terrorizes the inhabitants of Zanzibar (and coastal Tanzania), attacking and most notoriously sodomizing men and women as they lie in their beds at night. Victims are told to spread the word of their traumatic experiences or risk being visited and assaulted again. I'll therefore be making a rare public appearance to talk about Popobawa at the Centre of African Studies in the University of Edinburgh on Wednesday, 3rd February (Inshallah).
