It is over 12 years, Bintu and Chintua is now 20 years. While Bintu got scholarship to study abroad Chintua couldn’t go further as he preferred to learn trade than going to school. All effort made by his parents for him to be in school was to no avail.

On a Sunday morning, Chintua decided to go to church not because he wants to attend to service but to make advances on the Choir mistress.
After service, the pastor called him and advised him that he should change his way that the day of the lord is coming.
He was so terrified that he started planning on staying more of indoors should in case someone wants him to die by accident. He stopped going with Vehicle rather he will follow the bush area. He stopped eating outside should someone wants to poison him.
One day as he is relaxing under the Mango tree in front of their house, the pastor came again and told him he has message for him but he refused to listen as he told the pastor that he is being careful. Chintua will bring his girls in his house and sleep with them.
One day as he was ironing his cloth, he heard someone calling him. He asked who could that be as he is not expecting any visitor. He listened to know who could that be but he could not recognize the voice but decided finally to go and see who that person is. On getting to the door, a very thunderous sound hit the door, lo and behold Chintua was rolling on the floor in a pool of blood, he has been shot. He shouted what a fool I am. It is all over, he breathe his last and died.
