Panel 1: A party at Kipepe’s house is always a success, because he always welcomes guests with some wild boar meat.
Panel 2: Right, but we saw each other yesterday and he told me that he was not successful at getting a wild boar and because of this I believe he will…
Man 1: Has he finished it?
Man 2: You ask has he finished it when he hasn’t even begun to eat the boar.
Man 1: No, I meant has he killed the boar?
Man 2: Of course he killed the boar. You asked the answer.
Man 1: Sir, our elder, we have seen what you’ve accomplished.
Kipepe: Even if the animal was an elephant, it would have been taken down!
Man 2: We are very lucky, we’ll all eat fresh boar!
Kipepe: You know even I had started to despair.
Kipepe: But when I saw this stupid creature, I put all my anger into my club…you’ll remember my club weighs two kilos. But when I get riled up it weights eight kilos. Now think about it, eight times five. Is there a creature that is able to withstand that?
Kipepe: Now my friends, we don’t have any time to lose. Cook this boar quickly, chop, chop.
Panel 11: Ok now we can go inside and I will bring a TV for us to watch.
Panel 12: Just one minute.
Man 1: Is it true that Kipepe has a TV?
Man 2: What do I know, didn’t you hear what he himself said?
Panel 15: Greetings visitors to this household.
Panel 16: I am your host. The elder of the fields or the elder of work.
Panel 17: Stop confusing us with this TV of yours.
Panel 18: No, when I said TV I meant that we should wait for things.
Panel 19: And now the things are here!
Man: Give me these corn kernals to lure and catch a chicken that we can slaughter.
Woman: Catch one and do not say a word. Do it quickly.
Panel 2: Chicken, come to eat some food (ukoko=burnt food remains at the bottom of a pot)!
Panel 3: Chicken come to eat all the food!
Panel 4: Hmm, these are indeed the chickens, but I don’t know what to do so that they don’t suspect my intentions?!
Panel 2: I’m going to add salt so that the seasoning and taste is so good as to be desirable.
Man: OK, let me taste it first to see if it’s good.
Panel 4: Cat, get out of here. I don’t want to see your face!
Panel 2: Kalulu is a bad person, I know that he wants to kill me so that he will get money to buy himself beer.
Panel 3: It is necessary that I think very hard about this again. Until today, have always been a reliable dog.
Panel 4: Even my cousins the wild dogs live in the wilderness and they do not depend upon humans.
Woman: Wake up, let’s go to weed my plants!
Man: I can’t right now, I have very bad pains.
Woman: Stop this laziness, don’t you know that a lazy person does not get any food?
Man: But this is not laziness its aches and pains.
Woman: What kind of problem are you dealing with?
Man: The pains are from your dog!
Woman: My dog has no problems. You are being annoying!
Man: Don’t blame me, because you are also annoying him!
