I went home one day this week and found that the maid had sold my entire stack of precious newspapers that I have meticulously collected over the last 5 years.
It’s partly my fault because I had separated and tied several stacks to be sold with instructions that the others not sorted /tied up were not to be sold. However when the newspaper buyers came round, she sold the entire lot – tied & untied newspapers and away went historic articles from the nation, standard, people, weekly citizen, financial post, defunct tabloids like Kenya confidential, Patriot and some foreign newspapers – pages & pages of business articles, company & executive profiles, election & referendum stories, career guides, strategic & other business ideas, bar-fighting, sexcapades and corrupt deals of politicians etc. – vital sources of information and references for bankelele – all gone to be recycled or to wrap/pack pieces of meat at the supermarket.
The last time I sold my newspapers was after the referendum and 60 kilos of newspapers netted about 855 shillings.
The gain this time was much less (about 500/= to go towards groceries) but the loss was priceless
