How Monkey Saved Baby Antelope from Certain Death African Folktale Story


The Python one day posted himself near a trail where the animals of the forest passed on their way to the river.  

He cried with a loud voice and threatened to catch them and he did catch a straggler, a baby Antelope, and said that he would swallow him just as he was, hide and hair, head and tail, all in one gulp.

At this critical moment, the Monkey happened to come along. On seeing him, the Antelope called to him at the top of his voice, "Friend, the Python has caught me, and he threatens to eat me up!"

The Monkey, on hearing this, said to the Python, “Now tell me your side of the story!"

"I have caught him, and I shall certainly eat him up," answered the Python.

"How disrespectful, do bow your head and open your hands when you talk to your elders, and don't act like a brainless fool!" said the Monkey.

Then the Python felt ashamed and loosened his coils. The Antelope understood. Quick as a flash he extricated himself and fled. The Monkey also sped away, glad that he had been the means of saving his little friend the Antelope from certain death.

The simple task of charging a cell phone is no simple matter in rural African villages far from an electric grid.
With the advent of tiny rooftop solar panels electricity could be accessible to millions.
African governments are struggling to meet to electric needs of the poorest of the poor living in rural areas.
