He sometimes, like other workers said to me "I hope you will not follow in the footsteps of your father, who works to hard".
Like some older workers who had spent their life in the mine, I thought the same..is good for a growing boy to learn how to work hard, but there is a difference between working and child labor.
That was practically all the time about what was to be done in the company. I was about to discover how society functioned and at the same time, but more and more intense, I began to understand people better and better.
I did not understand why my father did not spoke so much, but as I get older I know that there is a reason for everything which one wonders about in life.
Once you start building a home, and have a responsibility for a wife and children, then it is not so obvious of changing work.
And if the work you are doing isn't pleasing you, then you are being pushed by circumstances to change your life...otherwise one ends up like people drinking to much because they do not like their work..because their wife loves somebody else.
In fact I wanted to quit school as soon as possible.Looking at the political situation in Congo wright now, it isn't an environment where I would like have been grown up and not at all in those old colonial days back then.The country has seen a lot of his rural people who went to live in cities and in some areas foreign colonial policies go hand in hand with the new Congolese elite, hand in hand with private armies battling for the resources and commiting criminal acts.I stayed in middle Europe and after working for the company of my father and his brother, I decided to look for a job. As a child I saw people of the telephone company climbing wooden structures with irons on their feet and I knew this would be something for maybe.Study hard my mother said while watching me..you study hard you can give instructions.
And in fact, that is what my father wanted me to be, and I would not let him down, so I started studying economy instead of taking the direction 'human sciences'.
