Whenever a baby was born to this outback African tribe it was cause for great celebration and merriment as the future of the tribe would continue to survive.
However, on the last occaision there was a bit of concern as the baby was white and the only person around for 500 miles that was white was the missionary.
The Chief calls him into his hut and explains the problem and highlights his accusation.
The Missionary is put on the spot and slowly strokes his chin, thinking. " I see your dilema Oh great Chief. Come with me. "
They go outside and over to the sheep pen. "You see all these sheep here?
They are all white except that one over there that's black.
I'll do a deal with you.
You don't say anything about the kid and I won't tell anyone about the sheep, okay ?"
