The New Student Monitor

16-year-old Faustin, the new student monitor at Kijana Kwanza, takes his role seriously. He has a notorious reputation for patrolling the dormitories at all hours of the day, in pursuit of untidiness.

Messy cupboards are his biggest angst and the punishment for stuffing your laundry at the back of your locker, is ruthless. Just yesterday, Saidi and Johanes had to crawl through the chicken coop to rescue their clothes, Faustin’s new favorite place for depositing every illegally stored garment.

For this reason, the boys are watching earnestly as Faustin demonstrates his exacting method for folding and storing your trousers.
