Friday is JuJu day!

Following up on the massive interested generated by our story on the Konkoran, we are proud to present a one-time series on the juju (or Ek-pe) of Cameroon.

Our first juju is a relatively benign one who typically shows up at palm wine drinking parties. Likes to get drunk and molest cattle.

Next, the money juju. Common during the holiday season. Collects money from revellers, especially white people.

And finally, the one-legged juju. A juju so powerful only its missing leg can be captured in a photograph.

There is also a no-legged juju, but that one is too dangerous to photograph.
