Shalom Makiyi Mwale from Malawi message
l think l deserve to be the winner because l am 27yr old single parent with two small children, a four year old girl and a one year old boy. l just separated from my husband in Nov 2014, when he was leaving he took with him the only car we had a vitz.
My daughter, Tyra loved her father and she loved his car too, ever since he left she has become a moody child, doesn’t want to to go to school because now she has to walk. All her friends have daddy’s with cars but she alone only has mommy without a car, l keep telling her we will have our own car one day, but even as a child she doesn’t believe me, because sometimes even when she wants something as simple as chips, mommy can’t give her.
My son Jeremiah was too little and is too little still to notice anything, it is just interesting to see him now that he is one year and two months the interest he has in cars, he talks to cars and whenever the chance arises for him to touch a car he is always thrilled, and he carresses it,he loves cars.
As a mother life is so hard with my two young children we can’t visit relatives because l can’t take them both on a bus.
this competition seems like our heaven sent answer, me and my children will be waiting for Japanese cars to sand us that car, it will bring back a smile on our faces.
It is common for children to assume that everything their parents buy belongs to them, my daughter is the same.she used to say the car belongs to her.She said if we buy another one then it will be for Jeremiah her brother.A week after daddy left he came home to collect his other belongings, Ty said to him, “you stole my car, but mommy is going to buy another one for me.He laughed his lungs out because he knew that with what l get it will take me forever to save for a car and maybe even never!
It is not just about the smile,it is also about the inconvenience,if l had known he would leave us l would have made plans, to find a job closer to my parents, where my nephews and nieces would be helping to take the children to and from school, it is depressing for a mother with a four year old,and a one year old child to use public transport.
Apart from all that it is about restoring honour to my children, Sometimes when Ty is playing with her friends and am around l hear her saying to her friends that daddy left us, he took our car, and mommy can’t buy another one.
Here in Malawi Japanese used cars are everybody’s favourite, because they are affordable to us.and also we get our money’ s worth,l have never seen a Japanese used car having trouble for at least two to three years. Our neighbour has one it is a beautiful car, no scratches.
personally l love Japanese used car if l don’t win, but l ever have the chance to buy one Japanese used cars are definately my number one choice!
