Aza the Shady Friend African Folklore
Aza received a prestigious invitation, to visit his old friend chief Basi in a faraway village to celebrate the birth of his first child.
In his room, a hand woven golden blanket was stored. The blanket was to be presented to the chief during the feast at tomorrow’s festival celebrating the chiefs’ first-born son.
He takes the golden blanket, stuffs it in his travel bag and leaves the village, telling the people that urgent business requires him to go home and he is unable to attend the festival.
Aza denies it, and declares that it is a lie to ruin his good name. Nevertheless, the people insist Aza is a thief.
To his surprise, he finds the stolen golden blanket on Aza but does not have the heart to disgrace his old friend.
Chief Basi loudly declares to the people of his village that he has found no golden blanket.
