Amasuta chamba ameneyu. Why was he alone? Why did he not leave when he saw the water coming? Please, lembani nkhani zenizeni. Ngati si chamba then the boy is not normal. We can confirm with the headmaster.

He seems strangely calm. Perhaps reading a novel. Legs crossed. Head cocked by the side. Si chamba ichi??

Why was he washing clothes on Monday instead of week ends? He seems calm, hands akimbo, neck a destinate, mouth agape and nose ajar. Chamba chenicheni.
