Where is peace,security and hope? I will live to recall Nandwa and the beautiful Lila.
Years ago I came across Nandwa by then a primary school girl. She was very beautiful through born of a single poor parent. Her secondary education was made possible through helping hands from community well wishers. She passed well and joined a college as a teacher student. During her college she met a handsome man who proposed to marry her. Little did we know that one day this will be a sad ordeal. Nandwa accepted to get married traditionally.
After her graduation she gave birth to a baby boy. Life seemed to be good. She progressed well, built a good house started farming and finally started a big business. Unfortunately her husband lost his job and came back home. By that time Nandwa was pregnant and she gave birth to a beautiful girl Lila. Lila resembled her mother very much. She grew up and joined primary school. At age 12 her parents began having differences.
Since Nandwa was working, she decided to look for a transfer to another location. The difference deepened and Nandwa left with her daughter and left the son will the father at home.
She had hardly settled in her new house in her new working station when the sad news paved in all radio stations anouncing about a Mother and daughter beheaded inside their three bedroom house.
Where is security? Why was Lila beheaded at that age, Nandwa thought she was providing security to Lila. Whom should we ask???
