Answers from Mma Ramotswe

I love reading about your adventures especially aloud to my husband. There is one problem however, and that is that I haven't been able to read your name properly! I don't know what title "Mma" is an abbreviation for and have tried even to find it in both French and English dictionaries.

Many Thanks,

Dear Mma Kate,
I hope that your husband does not go to sleep when you are reading to him! I have tried reading to Mr J.L.B. Matekoni but I find that his eyes close and soon he is asleep. Men are like that, I find. Perhaps Rra Mayfield is more attentive when you speak to him. Mma means mother or Mrs in Setswana. I am sorry that you did not find that in the French and English dictionaries. I wish that they had more Setswana words in them, but they don't. I can tell that you are a kind lady, and I send you all my blessings, and to your husband too. One day I hope that we shall meet, but until then:

Mma. Precious Ramotswe.
