Mama alikumbuka kuwa baba alisahau kumeza dawa. Aliingia chumbani na kutoka na vidonge viwili vya dawa akampa baba aweze kumeza kwa maji. Baba alikuwa na ugonjwa wa kisukari na shinikizo la damu.

Alikuwa anatueleza kuwa ugonjwa wake ulitokana na hali ya maisha katika harakati zake za biashara ambayo ilikuwa mara inapanda mara inashuka. Alikuwa akizinunua bidhaa kutoka Uchina na kuziuza humu nchini. Ingawa aliipenda biashara hiyo, aliichukia hali ile ya ugonjwa na hivyo akaamua kupunguza shughuli zake na kuongeza muda wa kupumzika nasi nyumbani.

Baba alipokata kauli kupunguza shughuli aliendelea kuwa na afya nzuri. Tuliendelea kuzungumza naye mambo aliyofurahia kusikiliza kama vile umilisi tuliokuwa tumepata shuleni.

Ilikuwa vigumu kwake kupata kazi ya kudumu kwani wanaume walipinga sera na maoni yake hata yalipokuwa mazuri.

Alikuwa akiandika mfululizo wa makala kuhusiana na haki za wanawake yanayowaathiri. Waliowadharau wanawake na kudai kwamba kazi ni za nyumbani tu na wala sio kufanya uamuzi, iliwafaa kupata funzo kuwa hata mtoto wa kike anaweza kutoa maamuzi ya busara na anazo haki sawa na mtoto wa kiume.

Ukiyasoma majarida mbalimbali utazipata takwimu za kushangaza. Nyingi za takwimu hizi zinasababisha mtu hata akose matumaini. Takwimu zinaonyesha kuwa, watoto wanaokufa kabla ya kufikisha umri wa miaka mitano bado ni wengi. Wafao wakati wa kuzaliwa bado ni tele. Watu waambukizwao virusi vya ukimwi kila dakika ni wengi. Watu wanaokufa mikononi mwa majambazi wanazidi kuongezeka nao wafao katika ajali barabarani si haba. Watoto wetu wa kike wanaobakwa na wanyama katika ngozi za binadamu, idadi yao inazidi kuongezeka kila kukicha.

Utazidi kupoteza matumaini ukisoma na usikie kuwa, vijana wetu wanazidi kujiingiza katika utumiaji wa dawa za kulevya na pia vitendo vya ngono. Takwimu za watoto wafao kutokana na maradhi ya malaria nazo zinatisha.Sisemi wafao kwa maradhi mengine kama vile kifaduro. Ifahamike kuwa, wengine hufa kutokana na utapi wa mlo.

Upande wa uchumi, hakuna habari njema vilevile. Bila shaka kufikia sasa umezoea kusikia kuwa, zaidi ya sudusi ya raia nchini wamo katika kitovu cha umaskini. Hawawezi kupata hata angalau shilingi themanini kwa siku. Hebu fikiria kuhusu kiongozi wa jamii aliye na watoto sita ilhali hawezi kupata angaa shilingi themanini kwa siku. Nafasi za ajira nazo ni haba. Idadi ya wasio na kazi wala bazi inazidi kuongezeka

Kulingana na takwimu hizo, lile linaloonekana kukua kwa haraka ni mitaa ya mabanda katika miji yetu. Na je, unaelewa kuwa zaidi ya asilimia sabini ya wakazi wa mingi ya miji yetu huishi katika mitaa ya mabanda?
Tafadhali lifikirie hilo.

Nalo pengo kati ya matajiri na maskini linazidi kushamiri.Kila kukicha, matajiri wanazidi kunawiri huku maskini wakiendelea kudidimia na wengine hata kufifia kabisa.

Hali ya mazingira nayo haijaonyesha lolote la kuinua nyoyo zetu. Takwimu zinazidi kuonyesha misitu yetu inazidi kuangamizwa. Mito nayo inazidi kukauka. Maziwa yetu yanazidi kukauka na kuchafuka. Navyo viumbe vya majini kama vile samaki vinazidi kufariki dunia. Inasemekana pia kuwa kiwango cha joto duniani kinazidi kuongezeka. Si ajabu kujkosa theluji kileleni mwa mlima Kenya miaka michache ijayo. Nayo maradhi ya ngozi na ya saratani ya ngozi yazidi kuathiri na kufilisi ndugu na wazazi wetu.

Swali ni hili, je,tunaelekea wapi? Je, mambo haya yanatokea kwa kuwa hatuna uwezo wa kuyadhibiti au ni kwa sababu tunayavalia miwani? Katu, siamini kuwa hatuwezi kuyashinda. Uwezo tunao lakini nia haipo. Pasipo na nia njia haipo. Lakini tumaini lipo. Si tumaini pekee. Hata suluhisho. Nayo hayo ya mikononi mwenu enyi vijana. Kumbukeni mnao uwezo. Ni nyinyi viongozi wa kesho. Someni kwa bidii mwajibike ili muinusuru dunia.

Read the passage below and answer questions 26-38

The bell for lesson one had just rung. It was the second day of the third week of terra three. Tana sat on her seat and her heart was beating unusually harder. She had just completed the work given the day before. She knew the maths teacher was just about to enter the classroom and demand for the books. Mrs. Hardy was a no nonsense teacher. She never put up with any sort of laziness. Tana was well aware of this and she began to shake a little

She was still thinking about this when from the pavement the sound of shoes as they hit the ground filled her ears. Tana was already sweating. Then the heavy door was pushed and the figure of Mrs. Hardy filled the classroom. Her face was as hard as her name suggested. Not a single trace of smile could be seen. Then she ordered for all the maths exercise books. The class monitor did not hesitate. She hurriedly collected the books from the class members.

"Teacher, I'm feeling terrible pains on my belly. I think I'm very sick and can even die. Please allow me to go outside." Tana said this amid tears. She was holding her stomach with both hands and her eyes looked pale. When she finally collapsed on the floor and twisted on the ground like a snake, Mrs. Hardy believed her. She gave her a piteous look and beckoned some three boys. Together they lifted Tana who was now groaning and carried her outside. The headteacher was informed of Tana's condition and a car was hired to rush her to hospital. The driver in trying to save life, drove at the speed of lightning. They were rounding the last bend to the hospital gate when something breath taking happened.

The car must have lost control and it swerved out of the road and rolled eight times. When it finally stopped rolling, the wheels were facing the sky as the top part supported the rest of the car. When the ambulance came ten minutes later to carry the victims to the hospital, all the four occupants of the car were unconscious. The driver was not very lucky, he died at the scene of the accident. Both Mrs. Hardy and Mr.Riziki the teacher on duty had sustained fractures on the legs. Tana had lost her right arm which cut off at the elbow. The three stayed in the hospital ward for four months in plasters. When Tana recalled the events that led to the accident, she burst into fresh tears. She cried more and more. When she looked at the state of both Mrs. Hardy and Mr. Riziki. She felt her body burning with guilt.

Read the passage below and answer questions 39 to 50

Eyes are the second most complex organ after the brain Only one sixth of the human eyeball is exposed. If the human eye was 2 digital camera, it would have 576 megapixels. Most phones have only 12 megapixels. You actually see with your brain, not your eyes. Our eyes function like a camera, capturing light and sending data back to the brain. You see things upside down but your brain which turns the image the right way up.

In a single second, it's possible to blink five times. You are likely to blink more often when you are talking. The eye is the fastest muscle in your body that's why when something happens quickly, we say in the blink of an eye!" The human eye can function at 100% at any given moment, without needing to rest.

Even if no one in the past few generations of your family had blue or green eyes, these traits can still appear in later generations. The world's most common eye colour is brown. But all babies are born color blind.Colour blindness is more common in males. Blue-eyed people share a common ancestor with every other blue-eyed person in the world.

Although our nose and ears keep growing throughout our lives, our eyes remain the same size from birth. A new-born baby will cry but not produce any tears. Babies do not produce tears until they are around six weeks old.

Blind people can see their dreams as long as they weren't born blind. 80% of our memories are determined by what we see. Your eyelashes keep dirt out of your eyes. We all have unseen, harmless microscopic creatures living in our eyelashes. Yuck!

Your eyebrows prevent sweat dripping into your eyes. It's impossible to sneeze with your eyes open. Although the function of tears is to keep eyes clean, scientists dor upset.

Your nose gets runny when you cry as the tears drain into your nasal passages. Some people have a fear of eyes; it's called omatophobia.
