One day, one of the girls said, "Grandmother, I don't feel well today."
She ate all the meat and then went to sleep.
Grandmother prepared ugali for supper, to eat with the meat she had cooked that morning.
When she opened the pot with the meat, it was empty!
But all three grandchildren shook their heads. "Not me," each one said.
She told each of them to walk on the rope as they sang a song.
The first granddaughter walked quickly across the river, singing the song.
The girl said to the boy, "You go next." The boy replied, "No, you go next!"
As she stepped forward to walk on the rope, she slipped and fell into the river.
Grandmother said to the other two, "She is guilty, but we must help her."
Since that day, the old woman's grandchildren have always told the truth.
