I like to recount some stories from the past, this one sounds like a joke but it is true storyooooo like they say back home in Africa I am not lying neither am I adding salt and pepper.
Shebi if I add salt and pepper nko is it soup I am cooking, just read the story and leave matter for Mathias. Just like you would enter a bus and not look at the face of the driver or conductor whether they are smiling or not, after all its money you are paying.
So back to my story or do I call it tale or fabu, just take it as you perceive it. There was this woman in those days in our neighbourhood. Every week, she prepares stew and the sweet aroma of chicken stew from her kitchen fills the air. The only thing in it which many kids mention to her kids is that no one sees when she buys or kills the chicken (in those days the 80s and 90s live chicken were bought and killed for meals in Africa).
Well, the kids always boost of the mum making chicken stew every week but where does the chicken come from was a mystery. One faithful evening a woman living in the neighbour returned from her daily business and found that her hen and the chicks dis not return to their little box where they are kept for the night and so she decided to look around the neighbourhood with the lantern. She got to this lady who prepares delicious stew place and found her chicks in front of the door but no hen.
She decided to trying to chase them towards her home but each time she does the chicks return to the front of door where she found them. At the third time the tired woman wonder speaking her thought out why the chicks have refused to move, if their mother was close by. At that the door was open and the lady of the house pounced on the owner of the hen that what does she mean by asking if her hen was close by.
They got into a fight and the Police were invited, the officer who came after hearing both sides of the story and seeing the chicks stick at the same spot decide to search the lady’s stew cooker’s house. Lo and behold the officer came out with aport of stew with chicken feet protruding upward and some feathers which the owner of the hen confirmed was her hen’s feathers.
The lady stew cook have been stealing neighbours hens to prepare her delicious meal, the police arrested her and the pot of stew which they said was exhibit “A” according to law. But first officers at the station will take photos then consume and confirm to the judge when the woman is charged that it was indeed a hen.
That is my story, if you don’t believe come and beat me, I am in my house. Thank you.
