Read the following passage and answer questions 26 to 38.
The theft had been on for some time and the villagers had complained enough about the loss of green maize from their farms. They had tried at number of tricks to catch the thief or thieves without a solution. The only change that kept happening is where the maize was stolen and when it happened. The villagers who had fallen victim had lost hope but those who had not known their turn was soon coming as the unknown person was busy ripping off the cobs and leaving
the stacks standing. Where he sold them, no one could tell but they really wished to know.
It was not the first meeting the village elder had called to discuss this. He had issued both threats and warnings but they bore no fruit. At one time, he said such act could easily end up with a fatality. He gave clear guidelines on how and when people should harvest the green maize and how to sell them so that people don't suspect one another. He also advised that it would be better if they let the maize dry on the farm first before harvesting in the same meeting. Vigilante groups were formed to help keep security and stem the theft.
Not even one day passed after the meeting. The thief continued the very following day as if the meeting has served no purpose and looked as if it was bound to continue. All the measures the village elder had put in place seemed to be failing. The vigilante groups seemed to be headed nowhere but disbanding them would even be worse.
Unknown to almost everyone, one of the thieves was always attending the meeting and participating actively in passing. He then passed all resolutions to his small gang who planned what to do as they continued with their mission. He made arresting the thieves utterly impossible; even getting a suspect was becoming too complex. When vigilante groups were being constituted, he offered to be in the group. Since all the young men present volunteered to be part of it, he easily got himself in the team. However, it was this that helped to coordinate activities of stealing, and continue remaining mysterious.
It was this same person making the arrest of these thieves an uphill task. By patrolling with the vigilante groups and the fact that he was hilarious and very trustworthy, even at family level, he managed to dupe everybody. He would convince the others to go towards the bridge when he knew his small gang was heading to the hilly area. He would call off the patrol at a time he knew their time to start their ‘job’ was about. The cobs would be ripped from the plant and put in the sisal sack each of them carried. This was done for two reasons they all knew. The sacks were transported by two cyclists who knew where to deliver them at agreed charge
Sila had become irritated and decided to guard his farm on his own. He went there without alerting anyone and sat in a thicket by the edge of the farm. He was determined to wait till whatever time for the thieves. He was willing to wait even up to morning but by around a half past two o'clock, awoken by some rustling or leaves. Some people were walking towards where he was! One of the cracked a joke and they all burst out laughing. The laughter was not the problem; it was that one of them had a very unmistakable way of laughing. It was Kure!
The stealing was done in an organized way. The thieves kept ripping the cobs and throwing into the sacks on their backs they moved together, each covering two lines and moving very fast. When they were about to accomplish their mission Sila screamed and the thieves got a shock of their lives. Their sacks dropped and they took off at lightning speed. With his sharp ‘panga’ in hand, Sila dragged the sacks to a different location then he too moved to hide elsewhere and waited for dawn.
As the sky was clearing, he took the path that the thieves had taken and recovered the shoes they had left behind as they fled. In the afternoon another meeting was called but this time round Kure was absent. As Sila started giving his version what had happened to him, the gathering demanded that he produces the sandals he had picked and when he did so, all eyes turned towards the village elder. The sandals belonged to Kure, his own son! There was murmuring for some time and when it dropped, he ordered five young men to go and look for Kure and bring him before the elders.
Read the passage below and the answer questions 39 to 50
It is true that many people don't get the same treatment at their work place. This is a very normal thing in any company or organisation. It happens that some people follow instructions faster and others too slow to learn how to do work more accurately, even if they are employed by others on the same day. This is what is called favoritism and is something that as an adult, you have encountered or will encounter at some time in your career no matter how small your office or work place is.
According to a recent research carried out about 90% of high profile business executives do confirm that favoritism exists and is the basis for some employee promotions. A huge percentage of them admit to have practiced favoritism themselves to reward employees who seem to reward harder than others. Sometimes, managers do it innocently, perhaps just because they like working with someone who works and reasons like them.
At times, it can worsen when to bigger changes like being the only employee who gets nominated to attend meetings where allowances are given. This happens where there are other equal or more qualified employees. They get pay rise, promotions and other benefits while others remain watching.
Favoritism at work is not entirely illegal. Your boss could just be seen to repeatedly excuse distracting behaviour from a particular employee and never anyone else. There is nothing you can do about it. However, when it contributes to discrimination and unfair treatment on the basis of religion, race, tribe, gender, ability or even nationality it constitutes to criminal offence.
It is hard to successfully climb the career ladder. You have to put in extra effort to outdo your colleagues but in the ends, you get overlooked in favour of someone who is just some sort of a ‘father's pet’. In some careers, employees may be discriminated against as a form of retaliation. This is seen in form of people who reveal secrets on what is going on in the manager's absence. Such people are retained even if they make obvious mistakes while others, who have other reports made secretly, got dismissed instantly.
As an employee, avoid jumping to conclusions. Try to find out some facts or what causes some situations. Digging back into issues by demanding explanations as to why your co-worker has been given this and that won't help.
Probably, your output has been reduced by you putting your energy elsewhere as others work. Continue to do your job as you investigate even when you are demoralised. Stay positive and remember, talking negatively about your boss and co-workers will add no value to you.

Bwana Toza alikuwa mkaramfu, hivyo hulka yake ilihusudiwa na mabarubaru wengi. Ila falau wangalijua kuchuja, wangeiga yaliyo mema kama mbinu zake za kuzalisha mali zisikowa na ila na kuyatema yasiyofaa. likuwa si ajabu kuwaona wakembe wengi wakitia mirija kwenye mikebe wakaishidilia tumbaku na kuzivuta 'toza’ zao kama Bwana Toza. Kwa kufanya hivyo waljihisi,eti wamefikia upeo wa kunasibishwa na Bwana Toza aliyetosha! Wakaamini kuwa maadamu toza zilitoka ulaya na wakazi
wa huko wana maendeleo makuu, basi kila aivutaye hatimaye angepata ufanisi. Hii ni imani ya jabu inayowakabili hirimu-kuiga, kikasuku, Mzungu akija na miondoko ya kikwao, humwiga wakidhani huo ustaarabu hasa,
Sku zilivyozidi kupita, Bwana Toza akawaambukiza insi wengi uvutaji wa toza akajiona kama mflame aliyetawala himaya nzima ya wavuta mitemba. Wengine waliianza tabia hii kidogo kidogo lakini baada ya muda wakakolewa nayo wakawa watumwa, Waliokuwa wakiivutia maliwatoni, sasa wakaivuta hadharani, wakatafuta viko hasa ili wainue hadhi zao maadamu wanasibishyve na Bwana Toza, Akawa ambari nao zinduna.
Azima ya kufikia kilele huwafanya wakwasi kutafuta sia. Bwana Toza akang'amua kuwa sasa ana wafuasi tosha. Kwa hivyo akaona kuwa lau angekiwania kiti cha ubunge cha eneo la kwao, angejinyakulia kiti hicho bila shida. Uchaguzi ulipotangazwa, akajitwika mzigo wa hugaragazana na wawaniaji wengine. Akawakusanya wafuasi wake wa tozani, Kwa moyo na robo moja, wakashauriana, kuhusu jnsi ya kuwakabili wapinzani wao.
Ukawa ndio mwanzo mkoko ualike maua. Alama ya chama chao ikawa kiko. Basi katika mikutano ya kampeni wakaviwasha viko vyao na huku vyafuka moshi wangeviinua na kupasua hewa kukinadi chama chao.
Mara kwa mara Bwana Toza alizoea kuamka bukrata ila mara nyingj alijihisi kuwa amechoka tiki na kuregea parafujo za mwili,kutokana na mavune ya kampeni na mtindi aliopiga kila uchao.
Siku moja karibu na mwisho wa majira ya kampeni, Bwana Toza alifika kuwahutubia wafuasi wake waliokuwa wameongezeka kupita kiasi. Alikuwa bado hajapata nafuu. Hata hivyo alijikakarmua kwa shida, huku akikohoakohoa. Huku mkono watetema alisema, ‘kikoo!” Halaiki ikajibu kwa mwangwi ‘ikooo~o! ‘Mara ya pili akajaribu kusema, ‘kik-oho—ho-kho--kho—”
Badala ya kiko kikawa kikohozi kisichopoa. Hakuendelea. Akaanguka kifudifudi. Wafuasi wake wakamkimbilia na kugundua kuwa alikuwa amepaliwa na pumzi, Wakajaribu maarifa yote ya huduma ya kwanza, walimvuvia, wakampepesa, wakambinyabinya kifua lakini wapi! Jitihada za ‘kuinusuru aushi ya Bwan Toza kitambo kile, Mambo yote yakafikia hatima ya ghafla.
Upasusi ulipofanywa ulionyesha kuwa Bwana Toza alimalizwa na toza. Pafu lilikuwa jeusi kama kaa lilininginiwa na masizi meng ajabu. Ripoti hi iliposomwa mbele ya wafuasi wake, wakaduwaa macho pima, Mitemba ikaanza kuwadondoka kutoka midomoni mmoja mmoja.

Adinasi walio na kasoro ya macho, miguu, masikio na kadhalika,ambao kwa bahati mbaya tunawaita vipofu, viwete na viziwi, Kwa kukosa majina bora zaidi, wanahitaji macho, miguu, nasikio na hata mikono yetu. Ni mara ngapi watu hao wamekosa watu wa kuwaongoza kuvuka barabarani au hata 'gurufuni? Mara ngapi watu waliolemaa miguu wameachwa tu waozee mahali pamoja bila kupata mtu wa kuwageuza hata waliapo kwa uchovu na maumivu? Ni mara ngapi wamekosa wa kuwapeleka ‘watakapo; wengine hata kunyimwa viti vya magurudumu hata vipatikanapo?
Kijumla, hasa katika Janibu za Afrika, wengi wanaowapata watoto waatilifu hudhani wamechomekwa mizizi au kuapizwa na wazee wao waliowatangulia, Huku wakinaonea wana buheri wa hamsa wa ishirini si ajabu kusikia kuwa mtoto alizaliva miaka kadhaa iliyopita na kufichwa hata mvunguni mwa kitanda katika humba klichofichama. Si ajabu pia kuwaona wata kam hata wakienda vilingeni kupungiwa wanao. Utawaona wakwasi wenye mashamba madal basari, mapana kama uwanja wa ahera wenye matumbo kama viriba na waendeshao magari ya kifahari wakiingia vilingeni mali mengi na mwanawe asipone, hali hii huzidisha tu dhuluma kwa muatilifu kwa kuwa sasa huonekana kama mjalaana.
Watoto waatilifu pia hubaguliwa kimasomo, Sijui aliyefichwa mvunguni atapata elimu lini? Vipi? Wao huchukuliwa eti kasoro waonekanazo nazo zitawakwaza masomoni. Hata serikal ikijaribu kuwatengenezea shule maalum, bado kunao wanaowanyima wango nafasi bila kujua kuwa Maulana humyima huyu hiki na kumpa kile. Kuwanyima fursa ya kuvitambua vipawa vyao ni dhuluma isiyomithilika.
Ajabu ni kuwa, waatilifu wakomaapo, wengi hukaa bila kupata wa kuwaoa au kuoa licha ya juhudi zao za kujimudu kiuchumi na kijamii. Wengi huchelea kubezwa eti wameoa 'wasiojiweza’. Jitihada za wengi kuwaoa watilifu zimevuliwa mbeleko na watu wa familia za
Kuchekwa kukebehiwa na kudharauliwa huwaletea simanzi waatilifu hawa na hujiona kara kizazi kisicho na thamani. Na ni nani aliyechagua au kuamua kuzaliwa katika hali aliyo kwayo? Ni nani aliyesema kuwa tusio na uatilifu ulio dhahiri tumekamilika? Je tukichungua kila mmoja wetu upungufu tulio nao kisha tudhulumive tutateta? Aliyekupa wewe kiti ndiye aliyenipa mini kumbi. Waidha, mdharau biu hubiuka yeye.

Long ago, Frog did not have the hoarse voice he has today. Infact, he was a well-known singer who would be paid handsomely to perform at various functions. He liked this and bragged about it openly, not knowing that one false turn could put a Stop to his fame.
Although he was famous, he was not liked due to one thing. He had the habit of stealing but this was unknown to many people. Hé stole cabbages and carrots from time to time but for sweet potatoes, it was like a daily routine. He liked eating them raw, boiled or roasted. He would salivate as they got roasted in an open fire just outside his house. He would not wait for them to roast as he greedily salivated. That is why he ate them while still warm. He was lazy and never watt farm like the others did.
During one harvesting season, people did not invite him much. He , therefore, found himself lacking food while the others had plenty to eat. Had he got the usual invitations, the situation would have been very different. He therefore resorted to his other way of getting food- stealing, For carrots and cabbages, he stole them late in the night and hid them in his bedroom so that not even his visitors would know he ever had anything edible in the house.
It was when he stole from Hare's farm that he got himself into trouble, Hare hid himself up in the big tree at the edge of his farm to keep watch over his carrots and cabbages that he had tended and watered for a long time. It was approaching midnight when he saw something moving towards the farm. After recovering from the fright, he identified the thief for he walked in a special way. As soon as the thief was through, he left and went home.
The following day, he visited Squirrel. He was given instructions to follow carefully and stop thieves from reaping where they did not sow. So the very following day, he went to the farm. As soon as he saw the thief arrive, he ran to Frog’s home, lit a fire at the normal fireplace and started roasting some potatoes in which he had wedged in some pebbles carefully. He then went back to his waiting area, just behind the fence to wait for the thief to return. It was cold, dark and frightening, but he eventually heard the happy whistling, a signal of the return of a happy man.
He came straight to where the nice aroma of roasting potatoes was coming from. Whenever he saw some nice meat, he always stopped being cautious and this is what Squirrel had told Hare. Frog took two long Ieaps and was there. In just a couple of minutes, he had swallowed a number of them before he realised that it was actually quite hot. He had no time to think when the heat started burning him from within. He croaked loudly and headed straight for the pond where he dipped himself:
He survived but he lost his golden voice. From that day, Frog learnt a lesson of his life but décided to keep trying to sing again. This is what you hear at the ponds during the rainy season.
Read the passage-below and then answer the questions 39-50
Teachers in the North-Eastern Kenya are an unhappy lot. It is said that people from other ethnic groups or religions perceived to be from far off regions are unwanted. They left the region and as they did so, most public servants who could find other jobs also left and there is no possibility of them returning there.
Those that felt their security was guaranteed braved their way back to serve the nation. They went there, knowing well that others have moved away and that means there would be more work for them. This is what led some teachers to camp at the Teaches Service headquarters in Nairobi. The teachers indicated that they were willing to serve anywhere else in the country except the North-Eastern. They expected to be posted to new stations.
One will ask if this is a fair decision to make given the children in those risky areas also leave an equal right to education like their counterparts in other regions.
On the other hand, is it fair to force someone to work in an area he or she perceives to be unsafe? Which is stronger, the right of the child or the forceful posting of a disgruntled employee? Teaching is said to be a noble profession and cannot be equated to the amount of money the teachers get paid. It is a service that trains a whole,being into being an acceptable membér of the society.
The government has used threats, insults and intimidation to make the teachers go to work. They have been threatened with being sacked and even reminded to think of whom they are. The government should have remembered that the insecurity the teachers are running away from is real and not imagined. The main issue here is security and the government has only verbally repeated to the teachers that they would be safe. No additional police officers have been deployed in such areas to show the government’s concern.
One wonders why the employer, too, told the teachers that they could be replaced at the snap of a finger. This strategy, honestly can’t work because those replacing them will equally soon demand the same security immediately and they too are replaced, what happens next?
Education of a child has almost nothing to do with what the teacher verbally communicates. It has a lot to do with what the teacher expects to impart in the mind of the child. A teacher working under stress is more dangerous to the children's welfare and cannot be expected to deliver.
