Sannadkii 2019, Sebastião waxay ka timid dalka Angola, halkaas oo ay ku qaadatay ku dhawaad ​​20 sano oo shaqadeeda xirfadeed ee ka shaqaynaysay qaybta maaliyadda ee saliidda iyo gaaska. Waxay leedahay afar carruur ah: saddex hablood iyo wiil.

Tan iyo dhallinyaradii, waxay xiisaynaysay daryeelka timaha dabiiciga ah, isla markaana waxay la dagaallantay kinky, timo jilicsan. Carruurteeda ugu da’da weyn, laba gabdhood oo mataano ah oo lagu kala magacaabo Zara iyo Zora oo hadda jira da’da labaatanaad, ayaa sidoo kale la halgamayay timahooda sannado badan, taasina waxay ku dhiirigelisay hooyadeed inay sii qoto dheeraato raadinta xalka daryeelka timaha dabiiciga ah. Ugu dambayntii waxa ay samaysay hab-socodka daryeelka timaha oo ku salaysan wax soo saarka dabiiciga ah, taas oo u ogolaatay in ay daryeesho timaha carruurteeda ugu yar oo ay ka badbaadiso halganka la midka ah ee ay la kulmaan walashooda ka weyn.

Waxay buuggeeda u hibaysay gabdhaheeda, iyo dhammaan hablaha kale ee dunida ku nool ee ku soo koraya timo kiin-jilicsan ama qalloocan- oo aaminsan in timuhu aanay qurux badnayn, iyadoo u malaynaysa inaanay timuhu dheerayn haddii ay doonaan, iyo wixii ka sarreeya. dhamaantood ma qiimeeyaan timahooda oo ay u arkaan “taajka amiiradda.”

Waxay samaysay khadka wax soo saarka ee Kilumba Kyawaba, oo si gaar ah loogu talagalay timaha dadka Madow oo si gaar ah loogu habeeyey daryeelka timaha carruurta.

Maaddooyinka dhirta ku salaysan waxay gacan ka geystaan ​​xoojinta caafimaadka timaha, jilciyaan, oo kordhiyaan cimrigooda. Buugan oo dhawaan la daahfuray ayaa akhristaha tallaabo-tallaabo u qaadaya hannaanka daryeelka timaha carruurta, waxaanu ujeeddadiisu tahay in carruurta la baro sida ay timaha u daryeeli lahaayeen. Edna waxay si adag u aaminsan tahay in daryeelka timaha dabiiciga ahi ay faa’iido weyn u leeyihiin, oo ay ku jiraan beddelidda aragtida dadka iyo fayoobida.

Marka Edna Sebastião aysan shaqayn, waxay jeceshahay inay wakhti la qaadato qoyskeeda, safarto, barato waxyaabo cusub, oo ay kariso cunto caafimaad leh.
