Ngoso jali jogoha jangu kibhi niyo. Jalijitugima kubhuluka hape limi nulu bhujiku nahene yaya, nguno jali jogoha kubhulagwa. Jubhona jikucha duhu na nzala.

Nose jibhilinga kulomana jite kinehe, aho jitali jukobha umu jite, nsumba wa ngoso wimila, uhaya giki, “Bashi lulu, nene napandika umhayo gwa wiza, guli giki, tuyitunge jangu ikinda mu nhingo, tubhize tuyigwe hose uko ujilila.”

Bhana ngoso bhuyega niyo no, bhunkumilija no unsumba wa ngoso uyo wabhalanga masala genaya.

Aliho namhala wa ngoso walahumulile du, ubhuka uhaya giki, “Hene mhayo gwenuyu gwa wiza bhuli, aluyo alagantunge u jangu ikinda nani?” Ngoso ki uyo ugima kuja kuntunga jangu ikinda? Henaho lulu yubhalemela, na kushishana haha.

Kiswahili: Panya Na Paka

Panya walikuwa wanamuogopa sana paka. Hawathubutu kutoka mchana wala usiku wakiogopa kuuawa. Wakaona watakufa na njaa.

Mwishowe wakafanya kikao wakitafuta la kufanya. Wakiwa bado hawajakaa, kijana wa panya akasimama, akisema hivi, “Jamani mimi nimepata wazo zuri, liko hivi, tumfunge paka kengele shingoni, ili tuwe tunaisikia wote kule anakoenda.

Panya wakafurahi tena mno. Wakamsifu mno kijana huyo wa panya aliyewafundisha akili hizo.

Lakini mzee mmoja wa panya alikuwa amenyamaza tu. Akauliza akisema, “Lakini wazo hili ni zuri, lakini atakayemfunga paka kengele ni nani?” Panya yupi atakayethubutu kuja kumfunga paka kengele?” Hapo basi ikawashinda na mpaka sasa.
