He was a good man who never fought with anybody in the village but unfortunately he was eaten alive in Murchison Falls by a Nile crocodile and now the family is left without head. The man had gone to fetch water at the river late in the evening. So all the responsibilities are left to the poor woman who have nothing, and she can only afford a little job of digging in people’s garden and get a small amount to buy food that can sustain them for some few days.
