TV AND TELEVISION...

When an Aringa (who had never reached Arua town) passed near Ombaci Satellite, he later inquired from his friend:
Ako basi ombaci ga loco da a’du: ’da TV ku?
Yu, TV ba ‘ba ja ga, anve da ba edi omve Television

(What is that huge thing in Ombaci, isn’t it a TV?
No, TV is put in the house, that one out there is called Television
).


THE 'SPRAY'...

A priest was celebrating the Eucharist (Mass). When he said “Let us pray” one of the faithful went to collect a spray thinking in Swahili that he said “leta spray” (bring the spray) to kill mosquitoes.
