 en The Village Man who became a Doctor
Cheema, Baljit & M'baya, Bridon


Bridon M’baya at 31 years of age has come a long way from Juma village where he grew up the eldest son in a large family. “Both my parents are subsistence farmers – peasant farmers. I grew up in the countryside, even when I was at secondary school or college every holiday I would go back to my village and it’s a long way from the main road so there is nothing about village life that I do not know.” Juma is in the heart of the swamps of Lake Chilwa – not accessible by public transport and 21km by dirt road from Ntaja.
