Tractors and Peasant farmers

The tractor at Tsitsikama Witelleibos is broken again. Sicelo has not been able to plough. The tractor is broken more often than it is fixed. I am sure that a lot more ploughing would happen if their were no tractor for people to wait around for! With no tractor people would harness their donkeys or their oxen and just get on with it. " But we are not Peasant farmers" says the drunk and slurring Boyana. " we are commercial farmers. How can we be seen to plough with oxen when we are commercial farmers?"
