Foolish Tongue African Folktale

Fools words get them into endless troubles African Folktale

The chief of a village once asked, “Who are more in number in our village, the women or the men?” Koa, the village jester answered without hesitation, “Men are the minority, women the majority!”

Koas' wife turned to him puzzled and asked, “How do you know this?”

Koa laughed and said, “The reason why there are more women in our village dear wife is that men who listen to what women say are counted as women!”  

As soon as he spoke the words, Koa knew he would soon have one foot in this world and one in the next for his wife answered, “It is your foolish tongue that will carry you to your grave husband!”
