One Isaac MUSAMBAZI is a 7 year old Grade one pupil at Jacaranda primary School situated in Rhodes park area east of Lusaka Central business District.
Isaac keeps up with his biological mother Ireen Ngoma in the densely populated Chibolya Compound. The mother works at a local community Tap.
Guess what? Isaac goes alone to and from home to school every school day. Crossing roads like Lumumba,Freedom way into Kulima Tower bus station, Jump on a bus with a K2 and drop at Civic centre and usually crosses roads like Independence avenue and church road among others and back home through the same route.
It was this morning when I was on a bus from UTH to Town when it stopped at Civic Centre to pick some more passengers when this innocent boy entered the bus sat with us on the back seat.
After the bus departed for town, I realised that he was alone. This situation touched my Heart such that I had to abandon my programmes temporarily and escorted Isaac home. I know that he always moves alone but I wanted him reach home safely for today. I wish I could do more for this future CEO. I wish those who can help this boy could do something agently.
Isaac goes to this distant school because he could not find space at the only school in Chibolya( Chibolya primary School) and the neighbouring schools.
Last but not the least, Am sincerely appealing to the Head Chibolya primary school, Debs Lusaka which is a Stone throw from Chibolya school,PEO Lusaka , Education Ministry or indeed any one who can help baby Isaac.
