Tokolosh and UFO's - is there a connection?

I found this mention on and thought it was relevant. A very interesting theory

"On September 16th, 1994, three flying saucers were seen hovering over Ariel School, in Ruwa, Zimbabwe. In Zimbabwe, UFOs are so common that local people have an indigenous word for the flying saucer, "ruserwa". One of the spacecraft landed, and a small being with long black hair and large eyes emerged. The being certainly satisfied many descriptions of the tokoloshe, and some pupils took it to be one, and fled for their lives.

Perhaps tokoloshis do have an extraterrestrial origin. Some of the children felt that the alien was telepathic. The incident was investigated by the Zimbabwean ufologist Cynthia Hind, and by the abduction expert Dr. John Mack. "
As a note of interest the following story i was told is relevent to this article. The person concerned was not the kind of person to believe in ghosts or ufos or tokolosh and yet he was convinced this was a being not of our world:

At about the time of the Ariel school sighting a young friend of ours claimed to have seen what he thought was a tokolosh.

He lived in a house on the northern outskirts of Harare. next to the property was an empty plot that had running water at the lowest part of the land.

He had been walking in the plot when he came across a small creature with bulging eyes which appeared to be startled at being found. The creature gave chase to our friend who fled the plot as quickly as he could. Could this have been an alien being? He never went back to try and see the creature again.
