Namadi Shocks Residents

Namdi is one person who left the entire mayenje community in a state of shock.He had tried to do everything to help and support his family but all in vain.Namdi who had four children,one in class six,another in class seven, and the other two in form one and form three,sought for something to do in order to provide his entire familly. As he struggled with life,an idea struck him and so he went to the constituency Development Fund offices where he requested that he be given the amount which is used to pay for his children school fees so that he can use the cash to feed the children as there was no need to take them to school yet they didn't have something to eat at home. This act shocked so many who lashed words at Namadi for his selfish behaviour
