Bhaliho bhasumba bhadatu  abho bhagigwa habhali ja ng’wa shetani bhudachiwa noi. Bhagiyangula kuja gujunchobha bhamulage. Aho bhashiga bhunsanga bhung’wila, “Lelo duligubhulaga.”

Ushetani agashosha, “Sawa, aliyo tamu diyeje na soda.” Umo wing’we agadenhele Soda.” Aho atali uguja ugujugula isoda, ushetani ng’wunuyo agabholekaja abhasumba bhenabho lunasi na dhahabhu, ubhawila, “Ulu ng’wunileka ugunibhulaga nagung’winha isabho jiniji.”

Halafu unsumba uumo agaja gujugula soda. Umunzila unsumba ng’wunuyo agandya guiganika umo alajipandikile isabho jinijo. Abhona igubhelela ugutuula simu umu soda jinijo, kugiki pye abho bhalamale gujing’wa na gucha, agudula gusola isabho jinijo, lunasi ni dhahabhu.

Bhasi, agita chiniko. Gashi ukunuma abhiye bhenabho bhizunilijaga giki, ung’wunuyo uyo ojaga gujugula soda, ulu oshoga abhulagwe kugiki abhoi abhabhili bhadule gugabhana isabho jinijo. Aho obhinha du isoda unsumba ng’wunuyo agabhulagwa. Aho bhamulaga bhagang’wa isoda jinijo.

 

Kiswahili: Vijana Na Shetani

Walikuwepo vijana watatu waliosikia habari za Shetani wakachukizwa. Wakaamua kwenda kumtafuta wamuue. Walipofika wakamkuta na kumwambia, “Leo tunakuua.”

“Sawa, lakini kwanza tuburudike na soda.” Mmoja wenu atuletee soda.” Kabla ya kwenda kununua soda, yule shetani aliwaonesha vijana wale almasi na dhahabu, akawaambia,  “Mkiacha kuniua nitawapa mali hii.”

Halafu kijana mmoja akaondoka kwenda kununua soda. Njiani yule kijana alifikiria jinsi ya kupata mali ile. Akaona itafaa kuweka sumu katika zile soda, ili wote baada ya kuzinywa na kufa, ataweza kumiliki  ile almasi na dhahabu. Basi akafanya hivyo.

Kumbe kule nyuma wale wenzake wakakubaliana kuwa yule aliyekwenda kununua soda, atakaporudi auwawe ili wao wawili waweze kugawana ile mali. Mara tu yule kijana alipowapatia soda, aliuawa. Baada ya kumwua, wakanywa zile soda.
