The tractor arrived at break-neck speed
Exactly a week after it left, the tractor came back. The speed at which it came through the estate left a lot to be desired. How safe are the kids who have little space to play, as it is?
Hurriedly opened gate by the askari and it quickly entered
It made a racket as it arrived and the resident watchman quickly opened the gate for it to enter.
Once inside, the driver leaves it on and goes to talk to his buddies
The driver took a while to 'park' it and even then did not switch off the engine but got off and joined his friends near the white pick-up, totally impervious to the noise still going on as well as the noxious fumes and with total disregard for the neighbourhood.
These are his colleagues or buddies or both
Those guys at the pick-up were doing something and he joined them.
They saw me continuing to take pictures, so a guy in yellow T-shirt and white trousers strolled to the offending tractor to switch it off, but couldn't.
Then, a guy in yellow T-shirt and white trousers detached himself from the group at the pick-up and leisurely strolled to the tractor, climbed into it and tried switching it off but was unsuccessful.
He eventually reached inside the engine compartment and somehow managed to switch it off!
So, he got off and reached inside the bonnet and did something which switched off the offending noise and the fumes and peace descended once again in the neighbourhood.
The next day, the truck hastily left.....
The next morning it was the turn of the truck to be left for quite a while to rev and be left idling after which it took off very fast. At the time of writing this, it has still, mercifully, not come back......, yet.
