Description
Fanisa Mwamitwa is the 'Sati WaHosi', the wife of the Chief. The connection between the meaning of the words of the song and its description as a praise song is not clear. "Khanye kude wawula niudawaze mashanga. Mluwetela wena minda twaze mwana warila." "Bright light (from afar) they mean you, Mindáwazé, worrysome. Keep cool, you Mindáwazé, the child is crying."
