“mum, is it true that mermaids exist inside isiama river? “I asked and she raised her head surprised with my question.

“who told you that ?”.

“they taught us African mystery in school but I don’t believe the teacher”.

“my son, the teacher is right,there are marmaids inside the river “.

“are they all wicked?”I asked again.
