AbstractThe ekong is a relatively modem notion of wilchcraft which is spread throughot large areas of central and southern Africa. According lo this belief, the witch does not devour bis victims anymore, but transforms them into zombies and makes them work for the benefit of another person. In this manner, newly lich people supposedly owe their success lo this particular form of exploitation. The article describes this belief according to empirical data obtained through fieldwork in Equatorial Guinea. It also deals with some reflections of a more general nature about wilchcraft and the inlerpretative work of the anthropologist on this kind of phenomena.
