Here is the reading for tomorrow:

The People of the Great River

This is the story of the River Tonga People. In 1955 they were removed from their land. They had lived for many generations by the river Zambesi, on both sides of the river. When the Kariba Dam was built, their river became a lake. They were resettled on Inferior land away from the river. No one asked their permission to flood their land and create an artificial lake. Uprooted from their land, they have left behind a way of life and a culture that was built around their closeness to the river. Their story is one of many.
