Faloka  -- Faloka is the witch doctor to the chief named Katumu.  He has colorful air filled bladders attached to his knees.  He advises his chief to vote in favor of permitting the Arabs to sell guns to the seven tribes.  Boy rides in on Kobu, the waterbuck.  One of Kobu’s horns bursts one of Faloka’s bladder balloons.  Katumu is not so sure about Faloka’s advice and wants to sleep on the question.  He meets secretly with the Arab Hassan and promises him the vote with go in his favor even if he has to do something to his chief.  Katumu dies naturally in his sleep.  Faloka pulls the chief out into the open and puts some his own blood on the chief.  He raises the alarm and accuses Boy’s waterbuck Kobu of killing the chief.  He also suggests that Tarzan was responsible because he was afraid that the chief would vote for the guns.  Tarzan challenges him to a trial by combat with the accused waterbuck.  Faloka is given two knives to defend himself.  The witch doctor throws one of the knives into Kobu’s back.  Kobu knocks the other knife out of his hand.  Faloka leaps onto a tree branch.  Tarzan declares Kobu the winner.  Faloka begs for his life.  He confesses to staging the fake murder of his chief.  Tarzan’s punishment is to let everyone know what Faloka did and let him live with the consequences.
