Yumboes are a kind of African house-elf. They are spiteful creatures, and tend to steal food from humans as revenge for crossing them. They also have intrinsic magical power, and can vanish at will.[1]

History

During the 1998 Quidditch World Cup, more stringent security measures were put in place (as a response to the riots that broke out on the night of the final of the previous World Cup). One notable incident was the arrest of the Senegalese team mascots, Yumboes, outside the stadium. The Yumboes responded to the arrest by stealing every bit of food within a ten-mile radius in revenge and vanishing into the night.[1]
