Please tell a story about a time when a person or organization tried to help someone or change something in your community:

Corruption

Chief Nunga was not familiar with many people. Those who knew him, knew him about corruption. He misused public funds for his benefit. In Nunga's location there were ragged roads, few hospitals and even schools. Whenever anybody went to complain he would send his askari to chase him away. After serving the people by force and brutality, one day the wananchi organised a strike and demonstration. The main aim was to burn chief Ninga's belongings which he acquired in a dirty way. The demonstration began and Nunga was not aware. the residents burnt down his beautiful house and matched to his office. Nunga heard noise through the windows in his office. He saw the crowd coming. Nunga managed to run away and hid in a neighbour's house. The angry residents burnt down his new mercedes benz. Nunga watched as fire was eating his car. His family, who had travelled abroad heard about this and and were astonished. Since that day Nunga learnt a lesson.
