"My father, Banda, has gone off to work in the towns, for a long long time, to buy himself clothes." how true a reflection this is upon thousands of Tonga men in this district who go off to mines and towns for their own reasons leaving the women and children to fend for themselves at home. Many send back money, but as many others find local foreign girls and forget their home and children.
