He detested a life of servitude and resolved to make himself a respectable person like his master. He enrolled in evening classes the moment his duties were done. The master neither encouraged nor supported the servant's endeavour to better himself. All he cared for was that the duties were carried out to the latter.
            The servant acquired vast knowledge in different fields. 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.
            The servant continued carrying on the work using the old methods. He studied with dint every night and finally sat for his examinations. He passed well with credentials and was lucky to find a good paying job with a big company.

            Pasi alipojiunga na shule yetu, wengi tulimchukulia kama kijana wa kawaida tu aliyeletwa shuleni na kiu ya masomo. Sikuliona lolote la ajabu kwake kwani kimo, umri na hata sura yake illifanana na zetu kama shilingi kwa ya pili. Uwezo wake masomoni ulikuwa wa wastani kwa hivyo sikumchukulia tishio lolote kwa nafasi yangu ambapo nilikuwa na kifuambele wakati wote. Sio kwamba nilikuwa na kinyongo naye ila uhusiano wetu ulikuwa vuguvugu tu.
           
Kwa baadhi ya wanafunzi, Pasi alikuwa muujiza wa kame hii. Madhali alitoka mjini, wengi waliajabia waledi wake wa lugha ya kimombo na lugha ya vijana ambayo ni mseto wa Kiswahili. KIngereza si lugha ya mama. Hata mimi binafsi nilijiona kama limbukeni mbele yake hususan kwa kuwa nilisitasita wakati wa kunena nilipojaribu kutema msamiati mwafaka wa kutumia. Wengi tulijitahidi kutumia Kingereza kwa ufasaha ilimradi tumridhishe Pasi. Nililobaki kujivunia zaidi ni ugwiji wangu wa Kiswahili ambuo niliuonea fahari siku zote.
            Si hayo tu yaliyowapumbaza wengi kumhusu Pasi. Maarifa yake kuhusu filamu mbalimbali, vifaa vya kidijitali na vipindi vya runingani hayakuwa na mshindani. Wakati wa buraha na hata katika haadhi ya vipindi vya masomo, wanafunzi wengi walimzingira jinsi siafu wamzungukavyo mdudu mfu kwani hawakusema wasemao mtegemea nundu haachi kunona? Jitihada za kiranja wa darasa za kuwatuliza ziliambulia kidole gutu. Hapo ilibidi niingilie kati nikawakumbusha kuwa mwangata mbili moja humponyoka. Wengine wakanitupia jicho upembe lakini walipoona nimesimama kidete wakarudi kwenye madawati yao.
            Haukupita muda mrefu tulipoanya mtihani wetu wa kaatikati ya muhula. Wanafunzi wengi hawakuweza kutimiza malengo yao. Kuna wale waliojiasa wakaanza kuinamia cha mvunguni. Hata hivyo, asilimia kubwa ilijitia hamnazo kucheza ngoma watakazo. Hawa walikuwa chombo cha kuzama ambacho hakina rubani.
Pasi aliwapa siri mpya ya kukabiliana na hali yao. Idadi ya wafuasi wake sasa iliongezeka maradufu. Kila mara alipokuwa nje ya darasa, aliandamwa kama imamu na maamuma wake. Hapo alijiona kama jemedari mwenye jeshi kubwa. Wafuasi hawa walishaanza kuigiza ile lugha ya kiongozi wao. Matokeo yao nayo yaliendelea kudidimia dididi japo hakuna kati yao aliyeonekana kujali togo wala jando.
            Mambo yalipomfikia mwalimu wa darasa kooni, alikata shauri kupeleleza kiini cha hali hii. Uchunguzi wake ulibaini kwamba Pasi na genge lake lilikuwa likibugia dawa haramu. Alimfikishia kinara wa shule taarifa hiyo naye hakusita kuwaita wavyele wa vijana hawa. Kwa kuelewa kuwa mbiu ya mgambo ikilia kuna jambo, wazazi walirauka na kufika hata kabla ya wakati waliopangiwa. Vijana waliitwa kadamnasi wakasomewa mashtaka ambayo walikiri kwa fedheha. Ungaliwaona walivyoshusha nyuso kwa tua usingalikosa kuwaonea shufaka.
            Kikao kilipomalizika ilipitishwa kwamba idara ya ushauri nasaha iwashughulikie vijana hawa. Hapo ndipo liliponijia wazo la kuanzisha kilabu cha ushauri wa marika shuleni. Amini usiamini! Pasi na wafuasi wake ndio waliokuwa wafuasi wa kwanza wa kilabu kile waliamua kutupa jongoo na mti wake. Hata ninapovuta taswira na kuona hatua zilizopigwa hadi kulikweza jina la shule yetu kileleni, fahari hunivaa hata nikajipata nikishusha pumzi kwa bashasha.

Yasome makala hawa wanaofuata kishu wiibu maswali kuanzia namba 41 mpaka 50

            Zaraa ni uti wa mgongo wa mataifa mengi ikiwemo Kenya. Viwanda vingi nchini hutegemea kilimo kupata malighafi yake. Aidha, taifa haliwezi kujilisha ikiwa shughuli za kilimo zitapewa mgong.  Licha ya umuhimu wa sekta hii, mkulima, ambaye ndiye nguzo muhimu, anaendelea kukabiliwa na matatizo atinati yanayokwamisha juhudi zake.
            Mojawapo ya matatizo yanayomzonga mwanazaraa ni ukosefu wa ushauri unaohitajika. Wataalamu wanaotarajiwa kumshauri mkulima kuhusu nija bora za kuzalisha na kuongeza pato lake ni haba akilinganishwa na idadi ya wale wanaohitaji nasaha yake. Walioko nao wanakwamishwa na mambo tofauti. Mathalani, utawapata hawaendi nyanjani ili kukutana na wakulima kwa kuwa hawana usafiri. Iwapo usafiri upo, huenda petroli ikawa ni kizungumkuti.
            Halikadhalika baadhi ya wataalamu huwa ni walaza damu na mafisadi. Kuna wale wanaofika ofisini na kushinda kutwa nzima wakisoma magazeti huku wakijaza mirabu, wakicheza bao au karata. Kuna wale ambao huangika koti au sweta kitini ili waonekane kuwa bado wapo na kisha kutokomea kuenda kushughulika masuala yao ya kibinafsi yanayohusu ndewe wala sikio kazi waliyoajiriwa kufanya.
            Ukosefu wa sera mwafaka kuhusa ardhi nao ni suala jingine linalotatiza kilimo nchini. Serikali haijaweka sera mahsusi kuhusu matomizi ya ardhi.  Waja wengi huongozwa na ta jamaa zao. Taratibu hizi kupendekeza ugawaji wa ardhi kwa minajili ya urithi kulingana na warithi waliopo. Si ajabu kuwa kote nchini ardhi inayofaa kwa kilimo imekatwakatwa vipande vidogovidogo ambavyo haviwezi kuwa na faida kwa zaraa.
            Kushindwa kwa mkulima kuongeza virutubishi ardhini ni changamoto nyingi inayokabili kilimo nchini. Ulimaji wa kile kipande miaka nenda miaka rudi minghairi ya kukipa nafasi ya kupumzika huufanya udongo kupoteza virutubishi muhimu vinavyohitajika na mimea. Ili kutatua tatizo hili, wakulima wengi hukimbilia mbolea za kisasa ambazo badala ya kuwasaidia huwaongezea madhila. Mbolea hizi zinatumbulika kuchangia uchafuzi wa mchanga na ardhi.
            Mabadiliko ya hali ya anga yamemfanya mkulima kushindwa kupanga wakati anaotakiwa kutayarisha shamba, kupanda, kupalilia, kunyunyizia dawa na kadhalika. Mvua imekuwa adimu. Badala yake panakuwa na vipindi virefu vya kiangazi ambavyo huathiri bidii za mkulima. Maji nayo yanaendelea kupungua na mkulima hawezi kukimu mahitaji ya unyunyiziaji wa maji shambani.
            Maradhi pamoja na wadudu waharibifu kama vile viwavi, kupe, na mbung'o ni changamoto nyingine inayotatiza juhudi za mkulima nchini. Haya hupunguza uzalishaji katika kilimo au wakati mwingine kupunguza mimea au mifugo wao.
            Mbali ya haya ukosefu wa chete, matatizo ya uchukuzi, gharama ya juu ya uzalishaji na mashindano tobana na bidhaa za nje ni changamoto kubwa. Mkulima wa Kenya anahitaji msaada wa dharura ili aweze kunyanyua kilimo. Lau haya hayatafanyika, uchumi wetu utaendelea kudidimia
