Chitapo- Rumors say that evil water spirits lurk in the waters of Africa, particularly in Lakes Kashiba and Mweru in southwest Zambia, in Victoria Falls, and even in the Atlantic Ocean.

A mermaid is a legendary aquatic creature with the upper body of a female human and the tail of a fish.[1] Mermaids appear in the folklore of many cultures worldwide, including the Near East, Europe, Africa and Asia. The first stories appeared in ancient Assyria, in which the goddess Atargatis transformed herself into a mermaid out of shame for accidentally killing her human lover.    http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mermaid
