Description:Honey Badger is sent to fetch honey by his uncle. When he has taken down the honey, he calls his friend Eland to come and eat. He gives the best pieces to his friend and brings only the rest back home. The next time, the one who sent him, lies in wait and watches what Honey Badger does with Eland. He waits until Honey Badger has gone and kills Eland. The next time Honey Badger calls for Eland in vain. When he realizes that his friend was killed, he puts a snake in his bag and makes his uncle reach into the back. The uncle is bitten by the snake. Honey Badger leaves the place and kills more people with the help of the snake. Lesson to be learned according to translator: When someone sends you to get something you must not give it to your friend. Otherwise the person will make a plan to kill your friend.
