The Footprint by Dabilo M. Mokobi
Tefo was down to one man and he thought he would send him on sales and marketing trips. The farm was 237 kilometers from one of the main farmer’s markets in the North Western part of South Africa, and thankfully both his son’s school and one of the diabetes specialists his wife preferred were also nearby. According to Tefo’s calculations, by the time their daughter arrived it would be okay for him and the farm workers to be grounded for a while.
Baby would be home, his wife would recover from the pregnancy diabetes, they would have sold enough stud goats to pay a respectable deposit for the solar powered equipment and machinery, and everything would be fine.Tweet
At least that’s what he thought.
