How The Donkey Came Out Of The Well

Wambugua lives in Lenana. They have cattle,sheep,goats and donkeys which help them to carry good to the market. One day donkey fell into abandoned well. The animal brayed piteously as the owner looked down and tried to figure out how to get out of the well. He couldn't think of any way how to do it. As much as he loved the old donkey he realized that animal need help. He used a ladder to save his life and lifted the donkey up and it was saved.
