And we now return to our regularly scheduled programming…
Last night there was a huge fire in the main market here, Konyo Konyo. This has very serious implications for hundreds of Juba merchants, who depend on the market for their livelihood. That being said, people are resilient, and much of the market remains in tact.
Today, a news outlet reported on the fire. Casually tucked halfway through the article:
Fire-fighters were seen gazing at the fire taking no action.
Of. Course. They. Were.
We didn’t light it but we… uh, didn’t try to fight it?
