Zulu 21 - The Moon

The people called amaZulu live mainly in South Africa.  They are named after the sky izulu.

Izulu is many things.  It is the weather.  It is the king.  It is heaven, for religious people.  Now let’s look at other things that determine our fate like the sun and the moon.
The ‘i’ is pronounced as ‘e’ found in e-books.
