Raelee has had a girlfriend for a couple of months now. It’s been a good thing for her because she has only had the boys to play with and they went back to school. The bad thing is this girl should be in school but isn’t. Remember when I told you Kimuli got married? Partly because he felt it was time and partly because that is what is done to prevent family and friends wanting him to support them because he works. Well, he paid what the family requested and got his wife…plus two of her sisters! They were sent with her to live to “help” her with her household. So, he not only paid for his new wife, he also got two more dependents. Not sure that deal worked out as planned! So, this little girl – Favia – lives with Kimuli but he is not able to pay to send her to school. I’m not sure why she doesn’t go to the government school, it is free except for exams but many people say the education is not good so rather than go there they don’t go at all. She’s a good little girl and they play well together. Now she has someone who wants to play with dolls!
