The third-best day of Sadiki Ngoma’s life was Wednesday, the day he got a working car.It’s a used car in good shape. It’s a donated car. It’s a car that can fit his family of seven: wife, Salima, and five children ages 10 to 2.What’s more, this car — a hulking 2012 Toyota 4Runner SUV — comes with three months of insurance thanks to a second donor. Both donors learned about the African refugee and his struggles in Omaha from a column I wrote in January.Sadiki, who works at the Tyson chicken plant in Millard, and Salima, who works part-time at a day care, just have to worry about gas for now.On Wednesday morning, the pastor of a Benson church where the Ngoma family worships drove the donated 4Runner to Decatur Street near the Northwest Radial Highway.
