 Kiswahili: Uzinduzi Wa Zahanati

Mwalimu Julius Nyerere, alipokuwa bado Rais wa Tanzania. Siku moja alialikwa kufungua Zahanati katika mkoa fulani. Alifika Jumamosi jioni, akakaa na viongozi wa mahali hapo. Akaomba asome ratiba ya ufunguzi.

Utaratibu ulikuwa hivi:

Kupokea wageni.

Wimbo wa Taifa.

Kwaya, Michezo, n.k.

Hotuba ya mkuu wa mkoa n.k.

Akasoma ratiba yote lakini hakuona neno juu ya kumtukuza Mungu. Akawaangalia kwa hasira na kuichana ratiba mbele yao, akasema, “Ninyi mnajua kwamba mimi ni mkristu Mkatoliki, huwa nasali Misa kila Jumapili. Na hapa kuna wakristu wengi ambao wanasali, kwa nini katika ratiba yenu haipo nafasi ya kumtukuza Mungu, au kumshukuru?

English: Launching Of A Dispensary.

ENGLISH: THE LAUNCHING OF A DISPENSARY

When MwalimuJulius Nyerere was still the President of Tanzania, he was one day invited to launch a dispensary in a particular region. He arrived there on Saturday evening.He stayed with the local leaders of that place. He asked to be given the opening schedule.

The schedule read as follows:

Receiving visitors.

The National Anthem.

Choir, sports and games, etc.

The speech of the regional commissioner etc.

He read the whole schedule but he did not see anything about glorifying God. As reaction, he looked at them with anger and tore the schedule in front of them saying, “You know that I am a Catholic, I normally attend Mass every Sunday. And here there are many Christians who pray.Why is it that in your schedule there is no space for glorifying God, or for thanking Him?
