FUMBE.  f. African Sungu name meaning "slave."

... The stranger, perceiving his eagerness, said, "I will accept all the goods your wife carries as a favour from you, because you are such a nice-spoken gentleman."  This was great impudence, for this was more than twice the fair price, but Gika, without another word, paid the man.  Then he asked:  "What is the girl's name?"  "Oh, we never troubled to give her one; we simply call her Fumbe (slave)."  Then Sudila, with a grateful look at her husband which amply repaid him for his kindness, snatched up the sobbing child, and, hugging and kissing her, said:  "You poor little mite, you shall have a mother now and a name too.
