The Popobawa is a creature from the Island of Pemba. Many describe it as bat like with one eye. While others say it is a physical creature, others say it is a shapeshifting spirit. Attacks are nocturnal and they will attack anyone in a household. Typically when there is a rash of Popobawa sightings a panic ensues and the locals tend to stay out of their homes at night and huddle together around a fire and sleep during the day.
