A Pygmy girl does chores for a wealthy Bantu family in Beni.
This is the daughter of Kenge-known because of a book, "The Forest People." Kenge is possibly the most famous pygmy. His daughter was traded off to a wealthy Bantu family when the father had a good job with GIC and his wife needed help with the kids. During the war, the family moved to Beni, because it was a little more secure than Epulu. They brought their pygmy with them. She does various chores around the house-laundry, sweeping, mopping, washing children.
