By a female, 16-21 years old, in Kampala, Uganda
Map of STARTED SMALL AND BECAME ENORMOUS Jessica, a woman who got married to a care-free man named Samuel, who labored so much as a mechanic and bought a plot of land and the two built and because the land was a full acre, they left the land fro the compound and piece fro the outside kitchen. Now because Samuel was so lenient, Jessica's relatives made long lasting visits and in fact he built for some of them just because the population was increasing every year as the relatives were bringing their wives into the rooms that Samuel had built and also started producing children. Imagine a family that had seven people in 1992 (nuclear family) and by 1998 it had over 30 people of which some were jobless, and turned thieves, Casanovas and by 2002, the family which was in the the suburb (Kireka) of the capital city now had 40 people. Samuel had no respect within his whole family and the entire neighborhood. He by then still couldn't take his own children to school and they started dropping out after senior four. Read more.
