Cation Beter Than Experience

It was 2009 when M.R NGUGI called us for avery special meeting. The main point was to nature us (youths) from bad companies. He told us real stories of life. I remember him giving cation to A classmate by the name that I cannot say. He told him to take care because we don't know what Kibera in General has for us. He told us that we should be in a position of being self detectors. Unfortunatelly tables turned round to the boy who was told to be cations. The week that followed after the meeting the boy was given a suspension from school. When the boy went outside He joined a group of peers who were bad. Infact it took only one month when the environment took notice of his bad behavious of stealing. you can Imagine how the mob Killed him. This gives me a very strong proverb that I follow Take cation!
