My story is about child labour. There was a girl whose parents died and left her with her uncle. Her uncle was living at Kisumu.Her uncle didn,t like her at all.One day early in the morning her uncle woke up and started complaining about mary. He went to the room where mary was sleeping. He shouted and told her to was utensils.Mary's tears rolled down her cheeks, Mary said that she would not bear the pain and went to visit the elders and told them what was happening to her.When the elders heard about it they started talking to themselves about what they would do. At twelve o'clock they went to my uncle's house and told him all the things that mary said.They decided to take mary and stay with her.
