Children, siblings unlucky too

No idea why they are unlucky

She lamented that it bothers her to think about how much the family has amassed in terms of knowledge yet they struggle like illiterate people.

"I don't know where we went wrong as a family because I have struggled and still struggling. Trust me I have done odd jobs to raise my fees since college and to date, I've never gotten a job," she expressed.

Consolata and her siblings were raised by their maternal uncle after her mum got married elsewhere and died a few years after.

The string of bad luck seems to be following her away from matters education and career as she became a mother while in college and marriage didn't work when she tried, so she opted to stay single.

Currently, the quinquagenarian struggles to make ends meet and lives in an unfinished house in Katani, Syokimau.
