John was delighted on Saturday morning when Lukondya and Dotto called round to say hello. They are motor vehicle mechanics students from Kalwande College.
The boys are in Mwanza on placement at the Ministry of Transport garage. Dotto is in his final year and Lukondya is on his first placement, in the second year of his course. He gets rave reviews from the college for his enthusiasm and he was very keen, some years ago, to help with the concreting of the fence back at Mayega. Very practical.
In a thoroughly British way, the boys and John had tea – Kilimanjaro English Breakfast, as a matter of fact. No Dundee Cake or Eccles
Cakes, unfortunately, but they did have chilli banana crisps as their ‘fly piece’.
Dotto and Lukondya are very keen to see aunty and were reassured that Christine will be arriving soon. They want John and Christine to visit them at their placement, as all the students do. John thoroughly enjoyed the visit and the lads were a picture of health and vitality. They were heading off for a day in town, as young chaps do a on Saturday everywhere.
