Context of the observation

A mkokoteni operator mit his vehicle on a typical market road where motorized vehicles are unthinkable. The mkokoteni is empty and the operator is in quick motion probably on the way to load the vehicle. On his way through crowded areas he gives signals with his mouth (which are very individual) for the people to go aside because people would not hear the non-motorized vehicle approaching.
