ENGLISH: I HAVE RIDDLE – LET IT COME: NKWIMBA’S MOTHER HAS THREE CHILDREN, THE FIRST ONE IS MILEMBE, THE SECOND IS KWANGU, WHO IS THE THIRD ONE? – NKWIMBA’.

The origin of this riddle is a mother of three children. She knows her children well by their names and behavior and the children too know their mother well.

The villagers, too, know the mother and her children, because of their good way of living in harmony. That’s why people pose a riddle, ‘Nkwimba’s mother has three children, the first one is Milembe, the second is Kwangu , who is third onet?’ and respond ‘Nkwimba.’

This riddle is used comparatively with reference  to a person who knows how to nurture his/her children. The person nurtures them by teaching them how to live in harmony with each other, just as Nkwimba’s mother properly nurtured her children. Such a person lives together with his/her children and they execute their duties cooperatively. Their lives also teach others how to live in harmony with each other. That is why people pose a riddle, ‘Nkwimba’s mother has three children, the first one is Milembe, the second is Kwangu , who is third onet?’ and respond ‘Nkwimba.’

This riddle teaches people about living in good relationship with their people, so that they can better fulfill their family responsibilities.
