A lullaby

Let us have a look behind the cactus forest. Where Kamumyi, suspected being the thief of a goat, left behind his wife and nine children. He died by the law of the bush, representing the will of the people, grown over tens of thousands of years. He died by the stones of his neighbors. Up to that day, when the family had lost it´s breadwinner, they were poor, but now they are no longer seen in Ishiara with it´s biggest East African open market. As if they are doing so since the dawn of the time, you see them sitting on the naked soil in front of their hut, built of clay. Sitting and waiting. Baby Kagendo, sucking the empty breasts of Mama Njeru, Ngatha, heavily traumatized, by being witness of when her father was murdered. Hunger is their daily companion, leaving them sick. But sometimes you hear Mama sing. A lullaby, which will bring Kamumyi back to life. “Your father was not the one. He has not stolen the goat. But let them talk."
