Netshirembe returns with another hit album

Entertainment: 22 May 2022

“A skilful hunter lived in a deep rural village with his three wives. He used to go to the bush to hunt khambas (tortoises), which he enjoyed alone without sharing them with his wives. One day, after returning from one of his hunting trips, he found that one of his khambas had been stolen and eaten. He confronted all his wives, who denied eating the khamba, and the man became very angry. He went to the local river and, over some days, made a thin bridge out of wood. He then took his wives along to cross the river. As they reached the middle of the river on the makeshift bridge, the wife who ate the khamba fell into the river and was swept away; her body was never recovered.”
