Takwe A Taamba are no longer animal characters with human features who play tricks distort rules', make the abnormal normal as found in Wimbum trickster tales and in other folktales. Derogatorily Takwe is any person (character) who is cunning, trickish, anyone envious, anyone who uses his wisdom for selfish and egoistic purposes. anyone who works against the communal interest, anyone who wants to succeed alone or reap from where he has not sown. While Taamba in the folktales is not clever, gullible and easily manipulated. The Takwe and Taamba have moved from the fireside stories to our global village today, where our leaders and those in authority (Takwe) can distort and change the rules and manipulate the gullible masses (Taamba) for their selfish and egoistic reasons thus the eternal duel between the unpatriotic, corrupted leaders and the masses, the Wise Vs the Idiots.Though the 'Wise' claim monopoly over wisdom but the 'Idiots' may not be fooled all the time.
