X-rated Kinyarwanda mistake of the day

The story goes that there was a European priest who was learning Kinyarwanda, as any good foreign missionary will do. One day he had a meeting with a man who worked in an office, so he walked in and addressed the secretary, a young and modest Muslim woman. “I’m looking for the man who likes books,” ibitabo, he said. Or tried to say. But what he actually said was “I’m looking for the man who likes ibituba,” or “the man who likes vaginas.”
