Imagine growing up in a three roomed house with a toilet located in a side street, on a corner of the yard. Imagine going to the toilet at night with muggers, thieves and unknown quantities moving at night. One has to sprint or dash to the toilet, relief themselves and hope no uninvited quantity has come near the house or entered the rooms. Imagine doing this in the middle of the night with rain pouring down on you. Imagine the toilet being a bucket system emptied into a tractor pulling a tank and nature calls slightly before the bucket is unceremoniously removed? Imagine six children growing up in a house with one bedroom, a lounge and a kitchen plus a small verandah. Then imagine three of the male siblings turning out as athletes of repute, a long distance runner, a sprinter and a boxer. Imagine the Rhodesian bush war raging. What effect will the bush war have on the children as they grow up? What does society say in an era where siding with the Caucasians is taken as being sell-outs? What effects will teenage experiments with sex, drugs, beer, cigarettes etc have on their future in a society where bareness is blamed on the woman? What will sexually transmitted diseases and HIV/AIDS have on them? If the ladies are eyes spotting, the gents' maybe beasts but the male siblings create flashbulb explosions, printed names and photos on newspapers.Imagine growing up in a three roomed house with a toilet located in a side street, on a corner of the yard.
