Urban child locked up in the country


When I lived with Salmi in Ovamboland we would spend Sundays going to the country side to see her children. Like most women in the cities Salmi sends her children to be brought up with their grandmother from they are about 5 years old. This boy was longing to get back to the city. His mother he hardly knew.
