Ma'e sewo bebo, nitu ngadho no'o babo mamo eo te'ti tei ra kita. ebe, langga do leka fila bewa, nuka leka keli soke ele nesi susa, jaga paga do no'o jala-jala medu tei nia ana mamo muri bheri..


Don't forget your forefathers who struggled for you; they passed the deep dark ravines and the high mountains, although troubles always came. They saved our life to keep their grandchildrens' life safe and well.
