of security because it is located near the police quarters.

Therefore by acquiring a home in this location has led to various advantages including high security levels due the nearness to a police residence and also low cost of transport to school for us and also for my parents to city where they go to work. We also have an added advantage in that the house is in the middle of a five acre land and that we bought the house and therefore we do not have to pay rent at the end of the month.


The house is large with four bedrooms, a master bedroom which has its own bath and this is for my parents, we also have our own bedroom each, we have the sitting room, entertainment room and dinning room, the bedrooms are up stares while the kitchen and the other rooms are down stares. The most amazing thing is that when we acquired the house it was not in good condition but my father contacted a construction engineer who repainted and repaired the whole house it is now as good as new and very beautiful.

However the initial cost was high but bearing in mind that this is an asset my family was ready to undergo the full initial cost.
