Ahuli! Nyuli! Olihoi Badri Wenge o parokia ya Sumve. U Badri Wenge olinkali noi. Ijina gumela, ulu hamo unkristo utola mhali, U Badri Wenge agushiga okalihaga bho higulya. Agusola pigipigi yakwe na guja gukaya ya nkima ng’wunuyo na gujunpeja ahalingosha ng’wunuyo.

Hangi, unke o nkristo ulu adajile ukukanisa ulushigu ulonfungo, onsangaga na guntula ngumhi.

Ahanuma yaho, agiza Badri Jola, umuparokia yiniyo. U Badri Jola agabhalomela abhazunya bhakwe, giki, “imihayo ya dini iliyabhuyanguji bho ng’wa munhu. Nulu ubhuzunya bhudadulile gukula bho gwihadikija.

Imihayo iyadini iliyabhutogwa bho ng’holo. Iyagwita mito gawiza, nulu mabhi, bhulibhuyanguji bho munhu wei, giki, bhulibhutogwa bho ng’holo yakwe.” Gutumo bhanhu bha kale umobhayombela, “Ya ng’holo ya ng’wa Jola.”  Ing’holo uluyutogwa umunhu ulya nyama mbisi.

UJola agalanga, “Ulu munhu alichagula lufu ubhuleka ubhupanga, wimana weyi. Ulu munhu alihaya gusaga na shibhi jakwe nduhu ugujileka dudinagogwita, wimana weyi na bhuyanguji bhokwe.”

KISWAHILI: PADRI WENGE

Paukwa! Pakawa! Alikuwapo Padri Wenge wa parokia ya Sumve. Padri Wenge alikuwa katili sana. Kwa mfano,  kama mkristo akioa mitara, Padri Wenge hufika juu kwa hasira. Atachukua pikipiki yake na kwenda nyumbani kwa mwanamke yule na kumfukuza kwa bwana wake.

Mke mkristo kama hakwenda kanisani siku ya jumapili  alimwendea na kumpiga ngumi.

Baadaye alifika Padri Jola katika parokia ile. Padri Jola aliwaeleza waumini wake, “mambo ya dini ni utashi wa mtu mwenyewe, wala ukristo hauwezi kustawi kwa kulazimishana. Mambo ya dini ni upedo wa Roho. Masuala ya kutenda mema au mabaya ni uamuzi wa kila mtu binafsi yaani upendo wa Roho.”  Kama wahenga walivyosema,  “Ya ng’holo ya ng’wa jola.”  Roho ikipenda mtu hula nyama mbichi.

Jola alifundisha, “Ikiwa mtu anachagua mauti badala ya uzima ni shauri lake. Ikiwa mtu anataka kubaki na dhambi zake bila ya kuziacha hatuna la kufanya, ni shauri lake ni uamzi  wake.”
