Zulu 3 - Lies

Amanga
Sweetness the novel has some words in the language isiZulu.  Let's test your knowledge.

Mama said telling lies is a no! no!  She didn’t know that liars are more successful than honest people.  Maybe she was right because of a tale about a wife who called her husband and asked him where he was.  He said he was in another province.  She told him to check his rear view mirror.  She was right behind him on the highway.
