How old are you?
I am six years old. I am in primary one. I live with my grandmother.
You were recently photographed doing your homework by the light of an ATM gallery…
I went there to do my homework because there was no electricity in our house.
Did your parent not have a generator at home?
No, we don’t have.
Is that what you normally do when there is a blackout at home?
Yes, when there is no power supply.
Who asked you to be going there?
Did you see anybody there the last time you went there?
Yes, I saw a man there.
What did man tell you?
He asked for my name and I told him.
Are you not afraid of going there in the night to read?
I am not afraid.
What do you want to become in the future?
I will like to become a nurse because of their white uniform. I like them because they take care of people that are sick.
So you like treating people…
