A long time ago, in the village of Mkosi, there lived a greedy hyena.
In a nearby village, lived a timid tortoise.
The hyena and the tortoise were friends.
Hyena heard that across the great western river lived bees that made delicious honey. These bees traveled once a year, and were away from their hives for a whole week.
“We must get that honey while the bees are away,” said Hyena to Tortoise.
