At the age of 78, one would expect a septuagenarian to spend her sunset days with grandchildren just like others. However, that is not the case for Cecilia Wangari.
Wangari is a music technician and a proprietor running Shosh Sound Systems complete with a garage in Nairobi, Kenya, where she fixes music systems for public and personal vehicles.
As opposed to selling vegetables in the estates which are highly perishable, Wangari said her goods can withstand low seasons with few customers as reported by Citizen TV.
"This business is good because I can stock these items for years when business is low. It depends on the customers since they see the sign post and come. My family members do not want to be employed too. They tell me they do not want boring jobs," she said on Wednesday, July 25.
Interestingly, Wangari never stepped into any tertiary learning institution but her aptitude in a male-dominated area is worthwhile to men and women looking to pimp their cars.
Her parting shot:
"Let everyone stop being lazy and idle. If we all work hard, we can end some of the financial constraints we are facing. However, no child will work hard without support and guidance from the parents," she advised.
