Aunt Betty and Uncle Mzolo

Aunt Betty and Uncle MzoloMy uncle Mzolo is a descendant of the people of my village. Together with my aunt Bettie, he has agreed to provide a home for me. Like the other uncles who have looked after me from generation to generation, he knows where i come from.

He is sworn to secrecy.

I am safe with them on their farm. Safer than in his car, because he sometimes drives like a hoodlum. Looking after a ‘magical’ boy like me has perhaps inspired him with a sense of adventure that he finds difficult to control.

It also fills both of them with a strong sense of tradition.
