Ilikuwa Jumamosi yenye baridi shadidi na umande uliotanda. Mashaka aliamua kuingia afisini. Aliingia bila woga wala wasiwasi, utoke wapi? Kilichomkaa akilini ni wingi wa maswali. Jambo usilolijua ni kama usiku wa giza. Moja alikuwa na hakika nalo: hakuna tamaa ya heri.
Alipoingia, alisimama mkabala na mwenye afisi, "Shikamoo bwana," akamwamkia. Aliyemwamkia hakutikisika wala kugeuka ila aliinamia jalada fulani akawa anatafakari au anasoma kitu fulani. Lo! Ishara mbaya kwa Mashaka ambaye alijikuta katikati ya chumba pasi na mwenzi wala mwenyeji. Akawa mgeni katika chumba ambacho zamani alizoea kukiingia. Alimtumbulia macho baba yake na kushangazwa na tabia yake ya kujitia hamnazo.
Hali katika afisi ilimkumbusha Mashaka siku zile alipokuwa shuleni. Kulikuwa na mwalimu mmoja mkorofi ambaye kila alipopelekewa hesabu kusahihisha, akiwa na kazi yake ya kusoma au kuandika mezani, ungesimama kwa muda mrefu kabla hajalipokea daftari lako kulisahihisha. Kisha alipolichukua kulisahihisha, ikatokea kuwa umekosea hata hesabu moja tu, basi huenda asingaligusa kabisa daftari lako. Hayo ya mwalimu yalikuwa afadhali. Bwana Juba hakumtambua hata mwanawe wa kumzaa.
Bwana Juba aliinama kwa muda jicho lake kali nyuma ya miwani-miwani iliyosimama juu ya uti wa pua-iliyoenda sawia na karatasi alizozifunua kwenye jalada. Naam, ukweli ni kuwa, Mashaka alizubaa zubezube na kuduwaa waa, asijue la kufanya. Alisimama mbele ya Bwana Juba kama mlingoti, hatikisiki, huku mikono yake kaifumbata na huku akimkagua Bwana Juba ambaye alikuwa kamvalia mwenziwe miwani ya mbao kama vile hakuwa mle afisini..
Mashaka alichukua nafasi hiyo kuukagua utukufu wa bwana yule, nao si haba! Isitoshe, jinsi afisi yenyewe ilivyopambwa, makochi ya kisasa yenye matakia manene ya kahawia, katikati meza ndogo iliyochutama na kubeba bakuli kubwa la maua, vitabu, majarida na magazeti machache yaliyopangwa hapo kwa madoido. Na matendegu je? Yalisimama tisti kwenye zulia jekundu lenye mapaku ya maua ya kutupiatupia ya manjano ambalo lilifunika sakafu nzima.

Utalii ni kati ya sekta muhimu sana zinazochangia ukuaji wa uchumi katika taifa la Kenya. Tunajivunia utalii, hali ya kusafiri kutoka kwako au kwenu ili kwenda kwingine kujifurahisha nafsi au hata kujifunza mambo mageni. Kuna aina mbili za utalii; utalii wa kitaifa na ule wa kimataifa. Wapo watalii wanaozuru nchi zao kujiburudisha na kujielimisha na wengine wanaovuka mipaka ya nchi zao.
Humu nchini, Mola ametutunukia mengi, mengi zaidi ya nchi nyingi duniani, hata ingawa kila nchi inacho angalau cha kujivunia. Kivutio kikuu humu nchini ni tamaduni zetu na wanyamapori. Wanyama hawa ni fahari ya nchi yetu. Wamechangia pakubwa katika ujenzi wa taifa kutokana na pesa za kigeni. Baadhi ya vivutio vingine ni maliasili mengi tuliyonayo.
Wanyama tunaojivunia nchini ni pamoja na twiga, simba, ndovu, kifaru, viboko na kadhalika. Wanyama hawa hususan huwa wanatengewa sehemu maalumu. Sehemu hizi aghalabu humilikiwa na serikali. Ili kuingia na kuwaona wanyama hawa, mtu hulazimika kulipa kiwango fulani cha pesa. Hakuna cha bwerere eti!
Licha ya kuwa wanyama hawa huletea nchi yetu sifa na faida chungu nzima, wao husababisha madhara pia. Mara kwa mara, simba wamekuwa wakitoroka mbugani. Madhara huwa wazi na huwa hayakadiriki. Simba na raia hupoteza maisha yao huku mifugo wakiwa hatarini kwani hufanywa kitoweo. Ndovu na viboko hawajaachwa nyuma. Wao huyavamia mashamba na kusababisha uharibifu mkubwa. Hali hii huleta njaa. Licha ya hali hii, tunalo jukumu la kuwalinda wanyama hawa. Tusiwe majangili tunaotafuta pembe za ndovu, na iwapo utakutana na mmoja, basi usikose kumripoti. Unahimizwa kupiga ripoti katika kituo cha polisi kilicho karibu au kupiga simu kwenda nambari 999. Moto unaowashwa misituni pia ukomeshwe. Vilevile, ukulima unaoendelezwa mbugani pia ukomeshwe. Sote tuungane pamoja tuwalinde wanyama wetu.

Read the passage below and answer questions 26 to 38.
Whatever it was that prompted me to go to Singapore is very trivial. In fact it was an afterthought that I didn't really plan for. The most important thing was that I learnt the meaning of loneliness and the fear of getting into the unknown. I should say that it did me a world of good.
On the twenty-fifth of February this year, I was crossing into another foreign country to "seek my fortune". With the passport in my hand, I glanced over the number of stamps on the page. Suddenly, a feeling of fear overcame me. How in the world am I going to find my way in Singapore? I knew I could not retreat because I had taken up the job of a home-teacher! And all my life, my interest had never been in teaching!
So with a brave heart, I ventured into the Lion City. I was first assigned a home in Tiong, a place I had never heard of before. I consoled myself that it was difficult to get lost here, especially with the efficient bus service. When I finally reached my destination, my expectations were ruined when I was confronted with the buildings that looked the same. The flats stood up like great giants looking down at me, perhaps laughing their heads off at my helplessness. As it was already seven o'clock in the evening, I walked aimlessly in the area. People, young and old, males and females came and went, but they seemed to be more in a hurry than I was. Where they were going, I had not the faintest idea. The careless attitude in them made me sick. There I stood, and I would stand there forever if I did not venture to take the initiative myself. I picked up my courage and walked slowly to the next block.
Rather unwillingly, I asked a passing boy about the whereabouts of the assigned home. He pointed to a block nearby. Feeling relieved, I walked towards the block and realized that it was really the correct one. I hurriedly walked towards the nearest lift. Before long, I was on my way to the seventh floor. At long last, I reached my destination. For me then, happiness was having found the place! I looked at my watch. It showed just a few minutes after eight. Now I realized the one-hour of fruitless search in the dark had seemed like eternity!
Now not only do I know what loneliness really is. Now I know what fear is like. Fear and loneliness only exist when you are in the unknown. When the unknown is opened to you, automatically, fear and loneliness vanish.
Read the following passage and answer questions 39 to 50.
Self-esteem is a crucial aspect of one's mental and emotional well-being. It is the belief and confidence one has in their own abilities and self-worth. A person with healthy self-esteem feels positive about themselves, their abilities and their future. They trust their own abilities and feel capable of handling the challenges that life throws their way. However, when self-esteem is low, it can lead to negative thoughts and feelings, such as self-doubt, self-criticism, and a lack of confidence. This can contribute to mental health issues such as depression and anxiety.
Low self-esteem can manifest in various ways, such as constantly seeking validation from others, avoiding new experiences and opportunities or feeling inadequate in social situations. This can have a detrimental impact on one's relationships, career and overall life satisfaction. Building and maintaining a healthy self-esteem is essential for living a fulfilling life.
There are several ways to improve self-esteem. One of the most important is to practice self- compassion. Treating oneself with kindness and understanding is essential for building self-esteem. When working or studying, set realistic goals and celebrate small successes. This builds one's confidence and boosts self-esteem.
Surrounding oneself with positive and supportive people can provide a sense of validation and encouragement, which can help to build self-esteem. Engaging in activities and hobbies that bring joy and a sense of accomplishment can also be beneficial for self-esteem. Additionally, changing negative thought patterns and learning to challenge limiting beliefs can help to improve self-esteem. Finally, practising mindfulness and self-reflection can help one to understand themselves better, which can lead to a deeper sense of self-worth and confidence.
It is important to remember that self-esteem is not a fixed trait and can fluctuate over time. It is an ongoing process of self-awareness, self-care and self-improvement. Seeking help from a therapist or counsellor can be beneficial in addressing and improving self-esteem. With effort and determination, anyone can improve their self-esteem and live a happier, more fulfilling life.

Rununu yake ilikiriza mara kadhaa lakini akashindwa kuiwahi. Kichwa chake kilimwanga vilivyo. Usiku uliotangulia alikuwa amepiga maji na kulewa chakari. Hakuelewa alivyofika kitandani pake. Mlaraha alikuwa mwizi hatari. Hii ilikuwa shughuli haramu na hatari kweli kweli. Aliitazama simu yake ya mkononi ilivyokuwa imechakaa. Ghafla, mlango wake ukabishwa kwa kishindo.
