The law doesn�t apply to non-politicians

Indeed it was a good weekend I had with my family, and particularly Uncle Sporo. We managed to travel to his field, which promises a good harvest this year. The maize, sorghum, and watermelons are galore. He is proud of his love for farming, and that this time, his perseverance is going to pay off. But he has one last word for television people, weather is unpredictable.

He argues that he almost gave up on ploughing this year after learning from his neighbour’s television news that there was going to be below-normal rain. It was in the first week of November, he claims, when the television warned that there were not going to be enough rains. He still holds a grudge against his neighbour. He accuses the neighbour of trying to discourage him by using a lying TV set on him.

Uncle Sporo offered me maize cobs and watermelons for my trip back to the city. He also uttered a few words that still haunt me – “remember that I must get that diff before Shonkololo sells it to another customer”.
