The village council led by #MwineMushi sat down to negotiate the damages due to Polopela after Kapaso (Mwine Mushi’s bumbling personal security guard) ran over Polopela's prized rooster with his car as it tried to cross the road. We put our detective hats on and tried to find the answers.

Q. Why did the chicken cross the road?

A. It thought it was an egg-cellent idea!

Perhaps the rooster imagined a better life across the road, away from Polopela’s daily schemes and tricks. After all, Polopela’s mischief was likely to have extended to all the animals and people in his care.

Q. Why did the chicken cross the road?

A. Because it was free range.

The council of wise men and women went further to deliberate on why the chicken was allowed to roam so freely in the first place? Perhaps it should have been tied up or at the very least confined to a field along with the other livestock. To this point Polopela argued that because the rooster was in fact a ‘very big rooster’ it could not be restrained by mere ropes or even typical fencing. This was an important observation from which Polopela proceeded to negotiate a higher price in damages for his deceased giant bird.
