Kure kwegava ndokusina mutsubvu.

Word Definitions

mutsubvu: tree which produces an edible fruit known as tsubvu (chocolate berry). – see picture

gava: jackal


A place with a mutsubvu tree, no matter how far, will never be considered too far by a jackal.


Jackals can best be described as opportunistic omnivores. They cooperatively hunt small antelopes and also eat reptiles, insects, ground-dwelling birds, fruits, berries, and grass.


One will not hesitate to accept even a daunting task, when it helps them meet their own objectives.
