Booming business

WHILE people enjoyed themselves at the Nabekavu Primary School golden jubilee celebrations over the weekend, 54-year-old Mohammed Khan sold barbecue making much needed money for his family.

The Nabekavu resident said during the two-day event he made more than $1000 profit.

Mr Khan had to bring his family members to help him because of the demand from his customers at the jubilee celebrations.

He said there were only a few stalls selling cooked food during the event.

"This is the first time that I am selling at an event like this and I am getting the hang of it," he said.

"We thank the school's management for organising an event like this and giving poor like me a chance to raise much wanted money.

"I had been told by someone that selling cooked food was the easiest way to make money because everybody needed to eat at the end of the day.

"During the first night I managed to make more than $500 and I made more during the second night because by then people had known about our family stall."

Mr Khan said they were happy to learn at the end of the carnival that the school's former scholars association was planning on organising an yearly carnival at the school.

He said if this eventuated they would get a chance to make money every year.

Meanwhile the school's former scholars association's president Mohammed Saiyum said they were planning on having a carnival every year to raise funds for unfortunate students in the school.
