His daughter was traded off to a wealthy Bantu family when the father had a good job with GIC and his wife needed help with the kids. During the war, the family moved to Beni, because it was a little more secure than Epulu. They brought their Pygmy with them. She does various chores around the house: laundry, sweeping, mopping, washing children, anything that is necessary.
