Waliho ngosha umo lina lyakwe Manyanda. Agading’wa bhusese ugagulwa hikulu, hali Ntemi Bhudoshi. Umu milimo yakwe wali nkomezu no.

Ntemi nang’hwe akantogwa no ung’winha na cheo (bhutale), nose ubhiza ntale o bhasese. Uitanwa nkujiwa wa ntale nsese manyanda (mheshimiwa wa mkuu, mtumwa manyanda).

Kushika nose bhiza bhabyaji bhakwe kunkomola (kung`winja mu bhusese). Aliyo iki cheyo jakwe ijo winhwa akalema. Ubhawila bhabyaji bhakwe giki. “Bhabyaji bhane nalina bhulumbi bhutale no iki ng`wizaga kunikomola, aliyo natajile, na manila no ukunu.” (kulemela mu shibhi)

Huna lulu bhabyaji bhakwe bhandya kulila, nu Nina ung’wila giki ulu walemaga tutibhona nu bhebhe hangi (izumo. Kumb 30:19) Kuhayimanila Ntemi Bhudoshi uzumalika. Mu shiku jene kaliho kajile, ulu ucha Ntemi akujikwa na nganji wakwe (mpaga kuja na nsago).

Lushiku lwene lwa kucha Ntemi, bhanamhala bhakang’witana Manyanda nang’hwe akayega no uhaya, “Lelo nagubhiza Ntemi.” Aho washika bhanamhala bhung’wila, “Lelo ugujikwa uli mpanga, iki kajile kise kali chene, uyo bhitogilwe nu Ntemi akujikwa nang’hwe mpanga.”

Aho Manyanda wigwa agasunduhala no, ugema na kupela aliyo uding’wa utungwa utulwa ng’wichongo.

Ntemi Bhudoshi nang’hwe utulwa higulya, bhandya gufugila, ukunu Manyanda akulilaga mugati. “Ulu ninazunije ya bhabyaji bhane,

ninatapandikile makoye.”
