“Our governor no know him job,” says the coffee vendor to the newspaper vendor, hissing at the day’s headlines and handing him a steaming cup.
The newspaper vendor takes a sip and cringes at the taste. He heads to the roadside market for a ‘De Rica’ of cassava flakes.
The cassava flakes seller, hot in a complaint about the ‘nonsense wey NEPA do’, pours an invisibly dented cupful into a nylon bag.
The vendor heads to his stand, brushing past a beggar with a cardboard sign that read ‘Blind, Deaf and Dumb’ receiving a phone call on an iPhone.
