That people will have so little to eat

A BOY, about 12 approached   my car as I stopped at a traffic light in Abuja. It was difficult to guess when last he might have had a bath. His bushy hair might not have felt the touch of a comb in a long while. When I looked more closely at him as he asked for alms, he was a beauty; like gold in a mud. I asked him his name. “Abdullahi.”  His surname? “Abinchi.” That means food in Hausa. So I explained what I was enquiring. He replied: “Abinchi.”  He was not smiling, so it wasn’t a joke. But I was convinced that could not be his surname. It might simply mean the reality he faces; hunger.
