We travel to the depths on Nandi County, Kapsabet Town, Chesumei Constituency, Kosirai, & settle at Kaptiltil village.
The air is fresh, plantation blossoming, sky blue & the atmosphere so joyous.
It’s the homestead of Mzee Benjamin Kiprotich Keino that hosts us this hot noon.
Song after song/ hymn after hymn/ Melody after melody/ Praises after praises, fill the air Kaptiltil.
There’re lot’s of villagers ready to receive us – a tent for visitors – a public address system for communication – & family – to rejoice with their brother Ben.
The women – at the far most corner of the tent are outdoing each other with vocals.
