Babu, whose given name is Donald Zakao, is a storyteller living in Wamba, Kenya. Babu means “grandfather.” Donald has been called “Babu” since he was four years old. A gifted story teller, “The Thief’s Hand,” is a good example of his craft. You will find several other of his stories at my YouTube channel. These were recorded in the late 1990s. I am preparing a volume of Babu’s stories. Violent! Yes.
