Jeremiah Faponle Brown had lost both parents to a fatal road accident. They had died instantly when the lorry they had ridden in had fallen into a ditch right in the middle a typically bad Forwani road. They were returning to Ofa from Kunama and had boarded the lorry because they couldn’t afford the transport fare of a normal cab plying the route. The driver of the lorry had failed to see the pit. It was not there when he had previously passed the spot some few days earlier. The poorly constructed road had sunk in due to excess rain.
JF Brown was nineteen years old when the sad event had occurred and was left with nothing by his late parents: no relatives, no home, no money and no hope. His parents owed three months rent to the landlord who had no compassion on JF. He had thrown JF into the gutter and had confiscated all his father’s properties which amounted to a pathetic little.
