Pre-Naivasha Days

Emmanuel Monychol (An Excerpt)

We used to fight flies and heat

In the bullet ridden grass thatched huts, We lived in the hope of milk and honey.

We tried to share the little we got with guerrilla forces

Who lived in hope too and tried To survive with little or no food and water

 Tyre sandals for shoes and old clothes looted or donated.
