Is it me who changed? I have always asked myself and if my change was so radical and spontaneous, then why wasn’t I corrected? Why do we have to let this change drive a whole consequence to a wacky end?

This comes to pass because, once in Sokomoko Imani and Amani get menial jobs where they work for two brothers – Nasaba Bora and Majisifu who are both oppressors. Continue reading
