Ubushiku bumo kwali Ing’wena yali nensala saana.

Once there was a very hungry crocodile.

Ubushiku bumo kwali Ing’wena yali nensala saana.


Yalefwaya ifyakulya mumutalalila ukwabula ukupanga ichongo. Elyo nomba…

He searched for food slowly and quietly. And then…

Yalefwaya ifyakulya mumutalalila ukwabula ukupanga ichongo. Elyo nomba…


Wiyu!!! Kucheshuko, Ing’wena yaikata icakulya!

POW!!! The crocodile strikes!

Wiyu!!! Kucheshuko, Ing’wena yaikata icakulya!


Panuma yakulya, Ing’wena tayaumfwilepo insala nelyo panono elo yalifye iyasekelela nganshi.

After that he is no longer hungry, and he is happy.

Panuma yakulya, Ing’wena tayaumfwilepo insala nelyo panono elo yalifye iyasekelela nganshi.


Pakafye yaumfwa insala nakabili.

Until he gets hungry again.

Pakafye yaumfwa insala nakabili.
