Teachers guide Luntu Masiza Tells the Truth


Good evening Sir!

My first idea was to call this assignment THE LEGEND OF LUNTU MASIZA because it sounded exciting. I was thinking of starting it in the following way:

People sometimes say that Luntu Masiza was not born. Instead, he fell from a passing comet to set the earth alight. They say that his brain burned as brightly as the comet against the night sky, that his heart was as hot and red as the comet’s core, that his tongue was as smooth and golden as its flashing tail, that his feet raced as fast as comets are said to move, etc.

Which, I think you’ll agree, Sir, would be very exciting to read and to write, even if it was full of exaggeration for effect (or hyperbole, as you have taught us). But then I remembered the purposes of the assignment.

I have thought about this for so long that it is almost 7 p.m. and time for the computers to be shut down and the containers to be locked for the night. I have decided that my title will be:

LUNTU MASIZA TELLS THE TRUTH

I think you will agree, Sir, that this is accurate.

Yours sincerely

Luntu
