“Miles, for Makali’s benefit, let me start our gathering by giving him a quick summary of our mission.”
“Great idea. We talked about it some on the way here, but he needs to hear it from the ‘horses mouth’, sort of speak.”
“Farasi kinywa? (horse mouth?)?” Makali asked, looking confused.
“Well it’s what we call a slang saying. Misimu (slang), it means hear it from the main person, I guess,” I said.
“Ok Bwana Farasi,” Makali said laughing.
“Yeah, funny. Thanks, Miles. I’d rather stick with kifaru, Makali.”
