- ‘Patice is given a panga, ploughshare, planer, bag of maize, bag of beans and small packets of tomato, onion, pumpkin and cabbage seed and he puts all of these in a hessian bag.’
- ‘We went down the footpath to her house between a small army of native boys who were cutting the coarse grass with scythes, known in West Africa as pangas.’
