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

Cinderella was made to sew new party gowns for her stepmother and stepsisters and curl their hair. They then went to the party/ leaving Cinderella alone at home.
            Cinderella felt very sad and began to cry. Suddenly, a fairy godmother appeared to her and said, "Don't cry, Cinderella! I will send you to the party " But Cinderella was sad. She said, "I don't have a gown to wear for the party.” The fairy godmother then touched Cinderella's rags and changed them into a beautiful new gown. She also touched Cinderella's feet with the magic hand. Alas! She had beautiful glass slippers! "How will I go to the grand party?" Asked Cinderella. The fairy godmother found six mice playing near a pumpkin, in the kitchen. She touched them with her magic hand and the mice became four shiny black horses and two coachmen and the pumpkin turned into a golden coach.
            Cinderella was overjoyed and set off for the party in the coach drawn by the black horses. Before leaving, the fairy godmother said, “Cinderella, the magic will only last until midnight. You must reach home by then." When Cinderella entered the palace, everybody was struck by her beauty. Nobody, not even Cinderella's stepmother or stepsisters, knew who she was in her pretty clothes and shoes. The handsome prince also saw her and fell in love with Cinderella. He went to her and asked, "Do you want to dance?" And Cinderella said, "Yes." The prince danced with her all night and nobody recognized the beautiful dancer. Cinderella was so happy dancing with the prince that she almost forgot what the fairy grandmother said.
            At the last moment. Cinderella remembered her fairy godmother's word and she rushed to go home. "Oh! I must go!” She cried and ran out of the palace. One of her glass slippers came off but Cinderella did not turn back for it. She reached home just as the clock struck twelve. Her coach turned back into a pumpkin, the horses into mice and her fine gown into rags. Her stepmother and stepsisters reached home shortly after that. They were talking about the beautiful lady who had been dancing with the prince.
            The prince had fallen in love with Cinderella and wanted to find out who the beautiful girl was, but he did not even know her name. He found the glass slipper that had come off Cinderella's foot as she ran home. The prince said, “I will find her. The lady whose foot fits this slipper will be the one I will marry." The next day, the prince and his servants took the glass slipper and went to all the homes in the kingdom. They wanted to find the lady whose feet would fit in the slipper. All the women in the kingdom tried the slipper but it would not fit any of them. Cinderella's stepsisters also tried to squeeze their feet and pushed hard into the slipper, but the servants were afraid the slipper would break. Cinderella's stepmother would not let her try the slipper on, but the prince saw her and said, “Let her also try the slipper!” The slipper fit her perfectly. The prince recognized her from the rest. He married Cinderella and together they lived happily ever after.

Read the passage below and then answer questions 39 to 50.

            Africa has the highest incidence rates of child labour, However, there is a difference between the definition of child labour in African communities and the western environments. When children work in Africa, mostly in family farm., they are doing so as part of training for their future and aiding family income. In the western sense, this is viewed as harmful and exploitative but that is not the case because the type of work children do matches their age and their environment. Cases of exploitative or harmful work are there, but they are also everywhere including the developed world.
            Child labour in Africa is generally defined based on two factors: the type of work and the minimum appropriate age of work. If a child is involved in an activity that is harmful to his or her physical and mental development, then that is child labour. That is, any work that is mentally, physically, socially morally dangerous and harmful to children, and interferes with their schooling by depriving them of the opportunity to attend school or requiring them to attempt to combine school attendance with excessively long and heavy work. The appropriate age depends on the effects of the work on the physical health and mental development of children.
            Although poverty is the primary cause of child labour in Africa, a broad range of factors ranging from structural, geographic, demographic and cultural factors also simultaneously influence  whether children work or not. In addition to poverty, lack of resources, credit constraints and parental attitudes towards education are also associated with child labour. The agricultural sector is the largest employer of children in Africa although there is also a vast majority of employed family workers who are also children.
            In general, hazardous work as a result of child labour can have immediate and long-term impacts on the safety and health of children. This may include injury, ill-health, disability and even death. Children are especially vulnerable to hazards because they are still developing physically and mentally. they are less aware of risks than adults and therefore more likely to be hurt. Exposing children to dangerous work or physical stress may have physical and psychological impacts which may only begin to appear at a later stage in their lives.
            To prevent child labour, there is need to bring in laws that make it illegal for children to work until  they reach a certain age. This makes it easier to combat the culture of child labour. Efforts should also be made by various governments to reduce poverty in families by creating more job opportunities. This will support families hence they do not need to send their children out to work. There is also, in addition, the need educate children. Education widens children's perspectives and shows them that they have so many options in life than simply to labour at arduous, low paid jobs from childhood into old age.

  1. According to the first paragraph, the writer says that in Africa;
    1. there are the lowest rate of child labour globally
    2. children do not work at all
    3. children work as part of training for their future
    4. working in family farms is really exploitative and harmful 
  2. The writer feels that the idea of African children working in family farms is not exploitative because;
    1. there has never been cases of child labour in Africa
    2. the type of work they do matches their age and environment
    3. the developed world is more exploitative to children than in Africa
    4. exploitative work among children is common everywhere around the world
  3. According to the second paragraph, all the following may be considered as child labour apart from;
    1. allowing a child humble time to attend school
    2. involving a child in an activity that is harmful to his or her physical development
    3. depriving child an opportunity to attend school through work
    4. making a child combine school attendance with excessive long and heavy work
  4. The least age for each work that a child does depends on;
    1. the benefits that the child derives from the work
    2. whether the child attends school or not
    3.  the effects of work on the child's physical and mental health
    4. the amount of the money that the child is paid
  5. According to the passage, we can conclude that;
    1. poverty is the only cause of child labour in Africa
    2. other than poverty there are some other causes of child labour in Africa
    3. cases of child labour are only found in Africa
    4. the agricultural sector is the only employer of children in Africa
  6. Harzadous work affects the child's;
    1. safety and help
    2. development and schooling
    3. growth and environment
    4. schooling and employment
  7. According to the fourth paragraph, children are  at great risks to hazards because;
    1. they are aware of the risk that come with work
    2. the impact of work on children only begins to appear at a later stage in life
    3. they work in different environments from the adults 
    4. they have not yet fully developed physically and mentally
  8. The word combat as used in the passage means the same as;
    1. embrace
    2. fight
    3. accommodate
    4. forget
  9. Which one of the following is not a measure that  can be taken to curb child labour according to the passage?
    1. Coming up with laws that illegalise work in children until they reach a certain age
    2. Government stepping into creating more job  opportunities
    3. Embracing the culture of child labour among families
    4. Availing education opportunities to children
  10. According to the passage, governments can help  to reduce poverty in families by;
    1. creating more employment opportunities
    2. providing poor families with basic needs
    3. educating families on child labour
    4. jailing families that involve children in child  labour
  11. The writer suggests that educating children;
    1. helps them year for meaningful wages
    2. expands their perspective about the options in life
    3. helps them have endurance in work
    4. enables them do the same work from childhood to adulthood 
  12. Choose the most appropriate title for this passage.
    1. Combating poverty in families
    2. The importance of educating children
    3. Creation of employment opportunities  globally
    4. The causes, effects and solution to child  labour

           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.
