Jerigu N-Dari O Salima

Jerigu is the appellation of Kar-naa Ziblim. When Kar-naa Ziblim’s father died, there were many sons who were eligible to replace him, most of whom were older and richer than Ziblim. Though lacking in wealth and stature, Ziblim was well known for his respectful and helpful character, and so was chosen to succeed his father as Kar-naa. The drum language for Jerigu says that a foolish man uses his money to buy gold, but a wise man uses his character to buy respect.
