“It just brought back the memories, (a crying Akothee) I can’t remember how many times this woman gave me fish , when I had just given birth to my daughter, and my parents in-law kicked me out, you know how you can get hungry after giving birth. I remember her lending me fish; they helped me a lot. I lived here for ten years, I remember having gone to the market to sell Kahawa shilling Moja Moja when the child was only two weeks, I don’t know where I was getting the energy from. You know I even gave birth my second born to the streets because I didn’t have money for the hospital, nilisukuma mwenyewe tu” said Akothee.
