One day, he approached his master and hinted to him on better ways of improving the farm yields. “Who are you to tell me how to run my farm?" his master exploded out at him. “But we have been farming using the same methods year in year out with some dismal yields," the servant tried to convince his master.
            "Listen!" shouted his boss! “I make rules here and you have to abide by them! Those night studies are making you stubborn and thick headed.” Saying this, he dismissed his servant with anger.

           Ni jambo la kusikitisha mno tunapoona jinsi vijana wanavyojitumbukiza katika janga la kutumia au kuuza mihadarati kwani vijana ndio nguzo na matarajio ya taifa lolote.
           Ni matarajio ya umma wowote kuwakuta vijana wakitumia nguvu zao katika kuimarisha na kulijenga taifa badala ya kuzama katika shughuli za dawa za kulevya.
           Wimbi hili la kutumia mihadarati limeingia kwa kasi kubwa na yote ni kwa sababu ya uhaba wa kazi, ukosefu wa mwelekeo na wa maongozi kwa vijana hawa. Zaidi ya hayo, wale matajiri walafi ndio wanaowapotosha vijana kwa kuwaingiza katika janga la kuuza mihadarati. Vijana hawa wanakubali kuwa
makala wa matajiri wenye uroho. Hii ni kwa vile wanavutiwa na malipo ya juu wanayolipwa hasa wakilinganisha wepesi wa kazi hizo na pato lake.

           Bila shaka muuza mafuta mazuri lazima ajipake ili kuwavutia wanunuzi. Vivyo hivyo, muuza mchuzi inambidi kuonja kukolea kwa chumvi ili kuhakikisha kuwa mapishi ni ya hali ya juu. Lazima atumie angalau kwa kiasi kidogo mwanzoni kabla ya kitendo hicho kuwa ni uraibu na ada asiyoweza kuiepuka kwa hali yoyote ilivyo.
           Vijana ni rasilimali kuu kwa nchi na jamii yoyote kuwaacha kupotea katika uraibu huu mikononi mwa mabepari walafi na waroho ni kama kuwakubalia kuwa mshumaa.
           Visa vya vijana waliojiangamiza wenyewe, kama afanyavyo pweza anapokaangwa, ni vingi na vya kuhuzunisha. Wamemalizika wakiwa hohehahe na mwishowe tutakuwa na taifa la mbumbumbu na maamuna lisilokuwa na mawazo wala msimamo.

           Nilizaliwa na kulelewa katika familia iliyotajika. Baba yangu Mlajasho alikuwa tajiri wa mali na moyo. Mimi na ndugu yangu mdogo hatukujua maana ya uhitaji kwani baba alitukidhia mahitaji yetu yote. Nyumbani mwetu kila siku mlishiba na kutapika watu wa kila sampuli waliokuja kulilia hali kwa baba. Baba aliwasabilia kwa mengi. Kuna waliopewa ruzuku mbalimbali za vyakula, kuna waliopewa vibarua mashambani na waliofanya kazi pale nyumbani.
           Almuradi kila mwanakijiji alifaidika kutokana na mkono wazi wa baba. Ndugu yangu mdogo hakuisha kuwabughudhi waja hawa na kuwaita waegemea nundu.
Siku zilisonga na kupita kama maji ya mto, hata nikajipata katika shule ya msingi. Niliyakumbatia masomo yangu kwa hamu kubwa. Sikuwa na wakati wa kufanya ajizi, kwani baba pamoja na pato lake nono hakuwahi kudekeza hisia za ugoigoi. Nasi ilibidi tufuate nyayo zake, kwani mwana akibebwa hutazama kisogo cha nina. Nilifanya mtihani wangu wa darasa la nane na kuvuna nilichopanda. Asubuhi baada ya kutangazwa kwa matokeo ya mtihani huo niliamshwa na sauti ya “pongezi mwanangu,” kutoka kwa baba. Baba alikuwa amebeba gazeti la siku hiyo, usoni amevaa tabasamu kubwa. Sikuamini maneno yake. Nilimnyang'anya gazeti na ikawa kweli mwenye macho haambiwi tazama. Nilikuwa mwanafunzi bora nchini. Nilijiunga na shule mojawapo ya kitaifa.
           Siku nilipokuwa kizingitini cha lango la shule ya kitaifa ya Tindi ndipo maisha yangu yalipoanza kuingia ufa.Nilikutana na Tamasha, mwanafunzi mchangamfu na mcheshi. Alijitambulisha kuwa alisomea shule iliyokuwa jirani na ile yangu ya msingi. Urafiki shakiki ukazaliwa kati yake nami. Tukawa daima tunaandamana. Hayo hayakunitia shaka, kwani Tamasha, alinihimiza kila mara nitie bidii masomoni. Hata hivyo, jinsi siku zilivyosongea ndivyo tabia yake halisi ilivyonibainikia.
Jioni moja Tamasha alikuja chumbani mwangu akiwa amebeba unga aliouita dawa ya homa, Aliniambia ibu kutibu homa ambayo ilikuwa imenikaba kwa siku ayami. Nami kwa kutotaka kumvunja rafiki yangu, nikachukia unga huo na kuutia kinywani; ingawa kwa kweli mwalimu wetu alikuwa ametuonya dhidi ya kutumia dawa zozote bila maelekezo ya daktari. Unga huo haukuitibu homa yangu, ila ulinipa utulivu mkubwa wa akili, utulivu ambao sikuwa nimewahi kuushuhudia maishani.
           Tamasha alifika chumbani mwangu usiku kunijulia hali. Alinipata nimejituliza juu ya kitanda changu, Alinisalimu na kukenua kama aliyetarajia jawabu fulani kutoka kwangu. Nilimweleza hali yangu naye akaniambia kuwa hivyo ndivyo dawa hiyo ifanyavyo kazi; kwamba amekuwa akiitumia kwa muda, hata nyakati za mtihani, naye hupata nguvu za kukabiliana na majabali yote. Alinielekeza kwa Mzee Kamaliza ambaye ndiye alimuuzia unga huo. Kuanzia siku hiyo, nikawa mteja mwaminifu wa Mzee Kamaliza. Nilitumia unga huo bila fikira nikidhani kuwa ilikuwa dawa ya homa tu! Sukujua ilikuwa dawa ya kulevya na alikuwa mraibu sugu wa dawa hiyo na nyingine nyingi!
           "Uzuri wake huu ni wa mkakasi tu?” Nilijiuliza. “Laiti ningalijua.” Hata hivyo, maswali yote haya hatakuwa na faida tena. Nilikuwa tayari nimazama katika tatizo sugu la matumizi ya dawa za kulevya,
           Nilijisuta moyoni kwa matumizi ya dawa za kulevya ambayo yalinielekeza kuytagongesha mwamba maisha yangu shuleni. Hata hivyo, haikuwa rahisi kuacha kwani nilichelea kuitwa kimbukeni na wenzangu. Matokeo ya haya yote yakawa kuzorota kwa masomo yangu. Walimu hawakuchelewa kuona mabadiliko yaliyonikumba. Walijaribu kunishauri na kutaka kujua kilichokuwa kikinisumbua. Walipoona kwamba hali yangu haibadiliki na kwamba nimeshindwa kuwaambia tatizo langu, walimjulisha mwalimu mkuu ambaye hakukawia kumwita baba. Mazungumzo kati ya baba na mwalimu mkuu yalinitia fadhaa kubwa kwani sikutaka kuwaambia nilitumia dawa za kulevya, ingawa kwa kweli mwalimu mkuu alishuku. Walijaribu kunishika sikio kuhusiana na tabia hii yangu lakini tangu lini sikio la kufa likasikia dawa? Niliendelea na uraibu wangu hadi siku nilipofunzwa na ulimwengu baada ya kufumaniwa na naibu wa mwalimu mkuu wa shule mjini nikipiga maji. Nilipewa adhabu niliyotarajia. Nilijipata nyumbani kwa muda wa mwezi mzima, nikiuguza vidonda vya moyo na akili. Kijiji kizima kilijua nimefukuzwa shule kwa sababu ya matumizi ya dawa za kulevya. Sikuwa na pa kuutia uso wangu. Hata hivyo, hili lilikuwa funzo kubwa kwangu.
           Mama yangu aliweza kunipa nasaha na kunishauri niache kutumia dawa hizo. Mara hii, maneno aliyoniambia yalikuwa na maana. Niliyasikiliza kwa makini hata baba alipopata barua kumwarifu anirejeshe shule. Nilikuwa nimeamua kujiunga na chama cha vijana wanaopigana na matumizi mabaya ya dawa shuleni.
