“Kambili, you are precious.” His voice quavered
now, like someone speaking at a funeral, choked with

into the tub, tilted it towards my feet. He poured the hot
water on my feet, slowly, as if he were conducting an

was crying now, tears streaming down his face. I saw the
moist steam before I saw the water. I watched the water
leave the kettle, flowing almost in slow motion in an arc

Eugene Achike ,a prominent man in the hearts of the villagers of Enugu, Papa was a successful businessman who runs several successful factories and publishes the only Nigerian newspaper that dares to criticize the corrupted government. He was one of the few man that would not falter underneath the tyrannical Nigerian authority. Even though he opposes the government, he stills have the country’s interests in his heart.
Papa is a devout Catholic who is a holy and respected man to the people. Father Benedict said that the regard he has for Eugene “Pope, Papa, and Jesus in that order”. The church and the state both favours him because of his generous donations and his strong faith in god. Papa is known as the “Big Man” with the villagers coming for help.
The man of principle and honour
