KISWAHILI: MWAKA MBAYA WA NG’WANA NCHEMBE.

“Matondo, mwana Nchembe, Manju maarufu alichekwa kwa sababu ya uvivu wake na Mangu mwenzie Sengwa, mwana Jibishi akiimba: “Nitawezaje kujadili juu ya mwaka wa ukame.

Majira yote ni sawa kwake ndugu “Ng’wana Nchembe.” Kwake hakuna tofauti, kati ya neema na ukame. Yeye hakuna Baraka, siku zote ni ukame. Jembe hulionea soni (aibu) ndugu yangu “Ng’wana Nchembe.”

Wala mpini hajui kuushika kianaume, uvivu usijivunie. Kutotambua ukame, hufai kitu chochote, rafiki yangu “Ng’wana Nchembe!” Rejea Kugundua Mbegu za Injili, ukurasa 93.

Kitabu hicho, kiliandikwa na Kamati ya Utafiti wa utamaduni Bujora, kilichohaririwa na watafiti: Padri Donald Sybertz, M.M., na Padri Joseph Healey M.M., na kuchapishwa na Benedictine Pubhications Ndanda – Peramiho, 1993.

“Mtaguso Mkuu wa Vatikano wa Pili umewahimiza watu kufanya kazi kwa bidii: “Waumini hawana budi kujishughulisha na kuirekebisha dunia hii iwe mahali pazuri pa kuishi” (Utume wa Walei).

Uzembe umedharauliwa na watu kama mwana Nchembe alivyodharauliwa na Manju mwenzake mwana Jibishi. Tena umekataliwa na Mungu. Katika mpango wa Mungu ni juu yake kila mtu kufanya kazi kwa bidii ili atimize wajibu aliopewa kutoka kwa Mungu. Kazi yoyote tunayofanya inayo thamani ya pekee kwetu na machoni mwa Mungu.” Rejea Kugundua Mbegu za Injili, ukurasa 94.

ENGLISH: THE BAD YEAR OF NCHEMBE’S SON.

Nchembe’s son, the famous traditional singer, was laughed at by his fellow traditional singer,  Jibishi’ son, through the song: ” How can I discuss the year of drought?

According to Nchembe’s son, all seasons of the years are the same. To him there is no difference between grace and drought. Also, to him, there is no blessing; the world is full of drought. He feels ashamed of touching a hoe.

Nchembe’s son is futher described as someone who cannot handle well his hoe to demonstrate that he is not masculine enough to dig for his family. Failure to know the seasons of year makes Nchembe’s son appear as someone who doesn’t fit in the society (Refer to Kugundua Mbegu za Injili, which means ‘Discovering the Seed of the Gospel,’ page 93).

This book was written by the Bujora Cultural Research Committee, edited by researchers: Patriarch Donald Sybertz, M.M., and Patriarch Joseph Healey M.M., and published by Benedictine Publications, Ndanda – Peramiho, 1993.

The Second Ecumenical Council of the Vatican urged people to work hard:” Believers must work to make this world a better place to live ”(Apostolate of the Laity ).

Negligence is despised by people as Nchembe’s son was despised by his fellow Jibishi’s son. It’s In God’s plan for everyone of us to work hard to fulfill our God-given responsibilities. Any work we do has a special value to us and in God’s eyes (See ‘Discovering Gospel Seeds,’ page 94).
