Coordinators in the country have expressed happiness with the change of weather, which they say will improve their business.
June and July were worse for the coordinating business, particularly in terms of dressing.
Coordinators are fond of dressing almost half-naked, whether you call it improper dressing or not, that is for the church to consider.
But the fact is that every person dresses according to their nature of work. Mechanics wear overalls while most nurses wear their traditional white garments.
Coordinators have to make sure that their thighs are in the open to attract customers. With that kind of dressing, the cold weather is probably their biggest enemy. Unfortunately, they cannot wear sweaters, either. So what they do is to pretend that everything is fine when it is not. Now that the weather is somehow warm, coordinators are happy.
It was at my usual joint in Bangwe, Blantyre that the news was made known. The time was around 7pm when two coordinators came wearing more than mini-skirts and sleeveless blouses.
They then went straight to the sofa where Chief Kazingist sat.
“That is better. Someone on duty today is doing a good job,” said one coordinator.
“It is not only today but the whole of this month,” replied the other coordinator.
Chief Kazingist was surprised. He could not guess what the two were talking about.
“Sorry, if I am disturbing you. Which ‘someone on duty’ are you talking about?” He asked.
“We are talking about someone up in heaven,” one coordinator replied.
“Which one particularly,” Chief Kazingist wanted to know.
“The Angels, of course. Don’t you know that God puts these Angels on duty everyday to look at things such as the weather and the like?” She asked.
“No, I didn’t know,” replied Chief Kazingist.
“Then know from today. The Angels that have been on duty this month have been kind to us coordinators. They have been bringing warm weather which has helped us to dress like ladies on duty. We should be excited. God is great,” the coordinator replied.
“Is God great because He has provided conducive environment to your business. Don’t you think He is actually sad that the weather is allowing you to sin?” Chief Kazingist asked.
The coordinators looked at him, with one of them visibly angry. She wanted to say something but her friend stopped her.
“We are not stealing but doing an honest business. We don’t force men to come to us but they follow us. What I am saying is that God gave everyone an opportunity with which to survive and we were given beauty. So you better shut up your mouth before we help you shut it up,” said the coordinator.
