A long time ago in a riverbed near Beaufort West a man killed his wife. Since then people have been seeing a fast-moving light running up and down the river. They mean, that it's the angry spirit of the dead woman. Once a man rode towards it, and he ended up in a lunatic asylum.
The most famous story is about a hitchhiker. It was a stormy night in 1968, and an Air Force officer and his fiancée had a car accident just outside the town in the Kamanassie Mountains. The woman died, and the man got hurt. Since this happened, people who have travelled in the area on rainy nights have picked up a female hitchhiker. But she always disappears into the darkness again.
