Apparently the Swahili chants in Mombasa were a code to warn the gang members who were busy nicking the toys and similar,from Japan which were on their way to South Africa,that the stevedores were closing in on them.
After we had discharged the timber and trees from the lower holds the empty boxes we had to clear up showed they were pretty successful.
