He lived with his father Syonzola.
Musau hardly ever saw him.
But they would find that he was drunk and just teasing them.
But each time it was the same story. He would only be teasing them.
Musau knew his father's voice very well. He would listen as Syonzola moved in the dark until he reached the door of their house.
When he screamed, the hyena fiercely attacked him.
They turned over in their beds and went back to sleep.
But his father did not seem to move closer to the house. Musau sat up and listened more keenly.
He grabbed a smouldering log from the fire and rushed out of the hut.
He raised the burning log. When the hyena saw the fiery log, he ran away.
He spent his days telling interesting stories to the school children.
