Bill Grange has discovered that there is Radium in the area so he decides to drive out the pygmies. He bribes the evil witch doctor N'Louga to pronounce a curse upon the land. They then lure jackals to the area with hidden meat and release a gas that causes hallucinations. This convinces everyone that the land is cursed but Camilla is convinced it was a trick. She takes Chief Kolo with her and they go after the witch doctor. The tribe follows and kills Bill Grange and the witch doctor when they attack Chief Kolo.
