In this episode, the host "Otako" tells his stories and gives more information about the widely known word in East Africa that every European or white person hears when visiting East Africa. This word is called Muzungu!
For those who don't know the Swahili word: "mzungu" or "muzungu" (sounds like "muh-zun-gooo") generally means "white man", although it also applies to women. It can also mean a kind of "boss" even if you are black, brown or white!
It can therefore mean a white man (or woman!), a "European", the boss or the person who pays! It is thought that the historical roots of the word probably come from the expression " Those who are wandering aimlessly", probably related to the African experiences of the early explorers, traders and missionaries.
