At the early stage of her marriage, Anjawo learns the craft of preparing illicit brew and supply of drugs, legally unacceptable but proves more lucrative. Viewing at life to blessings on her side and curses on others, she cushions her children against alcoholism and drug abuse but treats others otherwise.
Anjawo’s behaviour blurs the distinction between a disciplinarian and the subject. Her effort to stop her children from drug and alcohol abuse is hampered by her own effort to influence other people’s children into the same. Her effort to stop her daughters from engaging in irresponsible sexual behaviour is constricted by her own narratives of her engagement at a school going age.
