These Are My Friends: Saaibu

Son of Kambɔnluŋŋa Yakuba, Saaibu is always hanging around Kolbugri‘s shop. He doesn’t speak a lick of English and loves to joke around.

His favorite past time seems to be to stump me with new Mampruli phrases and words that I have no chance of knowing yet. He will stubbornly repeat them over and over and will tell people not to translate for me. Drives me crazy.
