Story of the Week: The Man Watching Our House

It is time! And the Story of the Week is:

The Man Watching Our House by Makena Onjerika: The night my mother first spoke of the death of her mother, we had had no electricity in Zimmerman for four days. The hurricane lamp on the table gave her a giant head on the wall. She said, “The day after we buried Njerica, we were in the farm, me and your Aunt Batha. We were digging and then we saw a man walking across our fields.”

Congratulations Makena!

The Man Watching Our House wins the author KES 1000/- Shillings airtime. Makena, please contact Juliet Maruru on to claim your prize.
