SECTION A (10 Marks)COMPREHENSION AND SUMMARY

1. Read the passage below carefully and then answer the questions that follow.
Coming from the background I came from is fundamentally what actually made who I am today, I learnt so many life lessons which Am afraid that my children might miss.
I remember when I was still very young, one of our neighbours we had was mid class fam, at some point the father of that house was so so sick. There was not many friends and relatives who showed up for caring & comforting, even his closest family members like brothers & sisters. No one really paid attention. Very sadly that dad died after stuggling for his life, leaving behind 4 orphaned children
During the funeral, we saw things yooh. A lot of people came through, some travelled from very far, cows and goats were slaughtered, people ate and drunk, expensive things were bought, so many cars packed outside. Everything was on point... like propeeer.
After the burial, things were never the same for the orphans, no one paid for their school fees, now they dropped out of private schools and started going to public school, their life was miserably bad, no food, no new clothes, no happiness, nothing... and no one cared
Same applies for most African communities... Am telling you, your hommies, your true friends & close relatives will be last people to support your dreams & hustle. People will back u up in silly things but not important stuff, they will fundraise so much money for your wedding, send-off and kitchen party or kigodoro even BD party. But when you need money for business, everyone is broke. The moment you say you need money for your CPA or masters, everyone runs away. Its a tragedy!
