How was the foreigner dressed?
The foreigner was dressed in khaki clothes, making him look like a policeman or a soldier.

What was the visitor actually interested in?

What did he offer Muni soon after they met? Why did the offer surprise Muni?
Soon after they met the foreigner offered Muni a cigarette.

He was surprised at the offer as he had had no offer of a smoke from anyone for years. The nonchalant way the visitor offered him a free smoke was beyond his understanding.

What happened to Muni’s 40 goats?
Muni’s goats were most probably carried off by jackals or cheetahs. Moreover there were thefts from over in the next village.
