Musungu Learns Nyanja

Given how much time I spend in the car with Peter (MOH Driver), we have decided to make use of it with Nyanja lessons.  He first explained that musungu meant “white person”, but this I did not need translated, as 4 out of 5 people say this word as I walk by.  In South Africa I was mlungu and in Zambia, I am musungu.  However, my favorite new word so far is yeweo, which means “yes”.

  1. Haha - "yeweo" sounds like that sound you and Leigh always make.
