AkazoBud'a mumba, akaona, maiwe, irga zaipi-

Wakazoti kunaGuveya, "NdiZoZo, aawataura

M'toko wakataura navamie oakuru, Zino taku-

Uarwi oaGuveya Zaoakanzwa kuti mairgwana

KURWA PA MASHWAWU.
Kukundwa kwakaitwa Guveya nehondo ya-

Guveya zaakazopepuka, oona hondo yaM'toko

Uabudya naUazezuru uakaramba oacimuteeredza

M'toko akatambira nyama akatenda akaidya

Pashure pokuramba kuteerera kwakaita Uazezu-

Ba6a Richartz akati, "Ari pano Yosefe Munyo-

Yosefe Munyojgani akaendwa naye kuGoromo-

Kusika kwakaita Yosefe kunyika yaBudya, aka-

M'toko akazotaurira oanhu oake kuti uaende

Gurupira akaenda nehondo yake kwaMrewa.
Kuika kwaakaita, uaruggu ndokubva vati kwaari,

Zino Gurupira akaita seza akaiga audzwa uanhu

Uakarwa kwaZo. Zino nokwaMrewa Zauakaona ku-

Uakabva oapinda vaciwanda imomo, ino nemombe

Zino akakwira mugomo ari oga kundorwisa Ua-

Kuzoti Dazezuru ragara mazuva mashoma ma-
