By the way, families in Zimbambwe are now buying lots of sacks (tu-gunias) to keep in the house. That's because a loaf of bread in Zimbambwe costs 200,000 Z - dollars.....and you need a small ka-gunia to carry the money to the shop. God forbid if you decide to do a month's shopping!!...because I hope you remembered to komboa a lorry in Kariobangi.
