The lens of my superior camera caught this duo working on a customer’s tricycle popularly called Keke yesterday at Itikke street, off ikot ekpene Rd.
When I spotted them, I became curious and went to interview the mechanic.
Me: Good afternoon sir.
Mechanic: Good afternoon bro, you bring work?(sic)
Me: No sir, I saw you and the little boy working and became curious and decided to come and admire your work.
Mechanic: Ok bro.
Me: Who is he, your son orrrrrr..
Mechanic: (cuts in) he’s my son. He is very strong.
When he comes back from school, he works here with me.
Me: How old is he? I think he’s too small to start now to work.
Mechanic: Who told you?? That boy knows all the spanners and their numbers. I want him to repair aeroplane in future so that he will rescue me from poverty.
….There and then, he told the boy to get him 10 spanner, I was shocked to see this 2 years old boy fiddle through the tool box and brought out number 10 spanner for the dad.
My heart melted.
Is it proper to do this??????
