Sazan and Jimba are awake now. They will climb trees and hang about the balconies of surrounding houses to get a clear view of us.

In every facet of our lives — in politics, in commerce and in the professions — robbery is the base line. Because he was in it with us.

Which may leave some critics to suggest that Bana is playing the role of a martyr. My corpse will iwwa be available to you. Liked this story at high school,at hihg school didn’t understand how deep corruption but now can c it my doorstep.

Happy moments they were, and I am glad I got to experience it all with you. And many will not find a place. The Black Maria will take us to the sfrica or to the stadium.
