His father completed primary school but his family were unable to send him on to secondary school. His mother never had the chance of an education and did not attended school; she works as a housemaid. However she does not earn enough to be able to afford to send Yobe on to secondary level education.
Yobe has a full brother, Silvester and two half-sisters, Felida and Jane. Silvester and Felida no longer live in the family home. However it is still quite a full house as Yobe’s parents also care for his sister Jane and her 4 month old son; three nephews and two nieces.
Yobe is a likeable boy who is small for his age. He has been offered a place at Mambwe Boarding Secondary School which is about 60 km from Mfuwe.
