Sheka currently lives with his uncle. At one time Sheka's uncle visited the village where he lived to solve a case that had to do with accusations that Sheka’s mother was a witch.
Sheka's father ran away due to the community shame and his mother was so humiliated that she lost her dignity. The people in the village no longer associate with her and as a result Sheka was also stigmatized.
His mother begged his uncle to take Sheka away from the village to Freetown where he would be safe and could attend school.
Sheka's uncle is now finding it very difficult to provide for Sheka. He works as a radio technician to support Sheka's schooling but the funds are very limited and Sheka is currently in danger of having to drop school based on the limited funds that are available.
