Wretched of the earth?
I normaly sleep late and wake up kidogo late (7:00 am hivi), but on some occasions find myself up much earlier (for prayer and such).
Today I woke up kitu 4:00 am and guess what…. I found a neighbour’s house-help was still working; same chores as late last night.
I’m not sure the pay is consumerate with all the labour.
Of course the jiranis are sound asleep.
Such “small” stuff prick my conscience big time.
Whatever your station in life, if you are going to work for or with me, I’ll let you rest with the rest of humanity.
Of course unless the state has paid you to keep watch over me, for which I care less anyway.
I’m a night owl, – that’s how I survived campus and my stint in the media – but I won’t hold you to the same standard.
I wonder if domestic workers have organized themselves into anything in this country, say some organized labour movement or such?
