A CONTINENT FILLED WITH DETERMINITATION

A FRIEND IN NEED IS A FRIEND IN DEED!

A group of friends carrying a coffin bearing the remains of their deceased friend. Their friend passed away and they had no money to rent a hearse and transport his remains to his village for burial. Hence, they decided to carry his coffin and walk all the way to his village.

Liz,hiyo picha ya jeneza inasikitisha sana,binadamu tumedadilika,kile tunachojali sana ni matumbo yetu.Dunia haibadiliki embu niambie kisa cha wa hutu na watusti nini,bara laafrka halijalaaniwa bali kanavijivilafi vinavyosababisha mambo yote haya.

Bless Blessed I
