And through brainwashing to emptiness.

And a strong conscience.

And I will fight to the last cell.

SECTION A (20 Marks)

COMPREHENSION AND SUMMARY

  1. Read the passage below carefully and answer questions that follow

The world’s population growth rate is in rapid increase, whereas employment opportunities remain constant. With such difference, people have come up with survival tactics of which some are not morally upright. For instance, in urban places, especially in Dar es Salaam Tanzania, unemployed people have made life difficult for many innocent souls.

Most of these unemployed people are found in shops, bus stands, at the junctions and in social gatherings. These people have mastered the art of identifying potential “clients” just by looking in their faces. From a distance, they can tell what a customer is looking for, his/her financial abilities and any other standards. Suppose this customer wants, say, to buy a cloth, these jobless individuals will approach him/her and give an inflated price as they get commission from the surplus.

Another case of negative effects of unemployment is when travelling upcountry using public means. Here, you will meet many bus agents, who will look at you and tell you the destination you are heading to, they will not leave until you tell them where you are heading to, thereafter, they will ask you for the bus fare, then give you a fake receipt before disappearing.

Presently, many people have become aware of the activities of these unemployed people, especially those who engage in weird behaviours. They therefore, do not talk to them nor answer them back in order to avoid any form of closeness which may eventually lead to falling in trap.

SECTION A: (20 Marks) COMPREHENSION AND SUMMARY

1. Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions that follow:

AUNT HAN’S WEDDING DAY

I had just arrived home from school when my sister came to me smiling. She hugged me and kept smiling as we talked. On going to the sitting room, I noticed that everyone in my family was as happy as a King. I asked my sister what was happening and after a long while, she revealed to me that Aunt Nahi was getting married the following day and that she and I had been chosen to be the flower girls.

That night, the bridegroom and his relatives came to Aunt Nahi’s home to pay the last part of the bride price. The inner party of the family led the negotiations and feasting followed after the negotiations were over. During the night, all my Aunts and Aunt Nahi’s female friends had a kitchen party as a way of giving her a send off.

The following day, we woke up at the crack of down to get ourselves prepared. Aunt Amina called us and informed us that we were supposed to go to Al-Nur – Masjid Mosque where the wedding would take place. According to our Muslims cultural beliefs, we do not exchange rings so there was no need of buying them.

We arrived at the Mosque in the evening and found many people there. They all looked happy and were very smartly dressed. The hall from where the wedding would be conducted was decorated with nice and delicate flowers from India and Arabia. It looked wonderful. Slow melodious music played from the background.

The Master of Ceremony (MC) welcomed us and we were directed to a place to sit. Soon, the bridal party started getting into the hall led by the flower girls and the matron. The bride and the bridegroom then followed, dancing to the beats of some love songs that were being played. The bride looked shy but as pretty as a picture. I noticed that the groom was rather old. Word had gone around that Aunt Nahi was getting married to a rich man. I guess this is why so many people had come to witness the ceremony.

After settling down, they exchanged their vows and then the time for cutting the wedding cake came. The cutting was awkwardly interrupted by a young girl who had grabbed some part of it, but the best man saved the situation by leading the girl away. The cake was designed in a way that there was an opening at the middle of it, then there was a picture of the couple well stuck in that opening. The bride took a knife and cut the cake carefully from the centre towards the outside. She took a piece and fed the bride groom and the bridegroom did the same followed by a hug and a kiss.

The bride then gave a piece of it to the bride groom’s parents and the bridegroom also gave a piece to the bride’s family. The newly wedded couple was given presents such as utensils, furniture and a lot of money.

During the reception, people ate, drank and danced until 2 a.m when the ceremony was called off. The couple went to Bagamoyo to enjoy their honeymoon. This was the most exciting wedding I have ever witnessed in my life.

COMPREHENSION AND SUMMARY.

 

  1. Read the following passage below then answer the questions that follows.

It is very easy to acquire bad habits such as eating too many sweets, or drinking too much fluid or any kind of smoking. The more we do the thing the more we tend to like doing it. If we do not continue to do it , we will feel unhappy. This is called the force of habit and the force of habit should be taught again.

One of the most widely spread habits is the use of tobacco. Tobacco is now smoked or chewed by men often by women and even by children. Almost all over the world. It was brought into Africa by Whiteman from America. I doubt whether there is any good in the habit and it is difficult to get rid of the habit once it has been formed.

Alcohol is taken almost cool and cold climates and to a very less extent in hot climates. Alcohol is not necessary to anybody in anyway .Tanzania  isnot required by the people at all and should be avoided by them altogether. The regular use of alcohol , even in small quantities , causes mischief’s in many ways to various organs of the body. It affects the liver, it weakness the mental powers, and lessens the general energy of the body.

We also know that even in the most impoverished nations, boys and men still have many more opportunities and advantages and aremore valued in society in general. in the two largest developing countries, China and India, accounting for one-third of the entire world's: population, these are extreme examples such as the significant ,decreases in female population due to abortion and infanticide of girls.

Throughout the world many millions- of women and girls suffer unirnaginable violence — rape, restrictions and neglect, not to mention the- less violent but just as damaging exclusion from education, opportunity and choice.

For these reasons and, many more gender equity emphasizes the challenges facing  girls and women in the world to day. While  gender 'concerns the roles, status and relations between men and women, gender equity focuses more on girls and women to find ways to help them break through constraints to their full participation, decision making and equal status in the world.

Today, in most countries, boys are more valued than girls. When a boy is born, there is more often celebration of the birth than when a girl is born. Female, infanticide remains a reality. Harmful tradition practices such as female genital mutilation are still popular. These. Practices are indicative of girls; and women's low value and status in society as compared boys and men.

For these reasons, equitable efforts are necessary to break through the barriers to empowerment • and provide an opportunity for a better life.

 SECTION A (35 Marks)

 Answer All questions in this section.

  1. For each of the items (i)-(x), choose the correct answer from the alternatives given.

SECTION A: COMPREHENSION

You are going to read a magazine article based on an interview with a novelist. For questions 1–6, choose the correct answer A, B, C or D.

Janet Hollings interviews Marsha Lake, one of Britain’s greatest murder mystery writers, in her London home.

When you walk into Marsha Lake’s home there is a feeling of calm. You feel relaxed and welcomed. The walls are cream. The furniture is pale. Look more closely and you’ll see bright red colours present in the carpet and curtains. The red allows energy to flow into the room, I am told. And the furniture has been arranged carefully with everything pointing in the right direction, to reflect the principles of Feng Shui.

The focus of the lounge is a large desk. Marsha has written twelve murder-mystery novels and five plays there. She’s just finished her first TV script. The desk looks out over a beautiful garden. I asked her why she doesn’t work in the study. The study is at the front of the house. The road doesn’t give her the inspiration she needs.

Marsha looks the part of a mystery writer. She wears a long flowing dress with strings of beads around her neck. Silver bracelets jingle on her arm. Around the room are pots of different types of gem stones. Each gem means something different, she tells me.

Martha is superstitious. She was about eleven when she first began to believe. She was shopping with her mother, when a black cat walked towards them. Her mother said what good luck that was. When they got home, there was a letter from a children’s magazine. The story she had entered for a short story competition had won first prize.

Many of the characters in her early boks are superstitious. I asked Martha how else superstition affects her life. Is she interested in magic potions, witches and spells?

Of course not. Most of her superstitions are well-known - she doesn’t walk under ladders or open umbrellas indoors. But she also has some of her own. She always sends a book to her publisher in a green envelope, she doesn’t write on Fridays. I tried to find out why but she wouldn’t tell me.

At various times, however, Martha admits she has been obsessed. The worst time was her wedding day. As her husband-to-be was putting the ring on her finger, he dropped it. Most people would have dismissed the incident and continued. Not Marsha. It was a bad sign, it indicated that her marriage would soon be over. She stopped the wedding and sent the guests home. They got married six months later. It’s just as well her husband is a forgiving person.

There is not so much superstition in her later books. I wondered why. Does Martha believe in it less these days? Martha frowns. She feels she has explored the subject enough. There are other things to write about. You need fresh ideas to keep your readers interested. Martha is still writing books and they are still selling. It is clear she hasn’t run out of ideas just yet.

  1.       Write the letter of the best answer in the box provided ( 12 marks)
  1.  The first thing you notice on entering Marsha’s home is …………
  1.                 The position of the furniture.

D.   The atmosphere.

  1.                                                                                                                                             Why is Marsha’s desk in the living room rather than the study?
  1.                 It is too big for the study.  
  2.                 There is a better view. 
  3.                The living room is her favourite place.

  A FREEDOM SONG – by Majorie Oludhe McGoye

Atieno washes the dishes,

Atieno plucks the chicken,

Atieno gets up early,

Beds her sacks down ,in the kitchen,

Atieno eight years old, 

Atienoyo.

Since she is my sister’s child

Atieno needs no pay,

While she works my wife can sit

Sewing every sunny day; 

With her earnings I support Atienoyo.

Atieno’s sly and jealous,

Bad example to the kids

Since she minds them, like a schoolgirl

Wants her dresses, shoes and beads,

Atieno ten years old;

Atienoyo

Now my wife has gone to study

Atieno is less free.

Don’t keep her, school my own ones,

Pay the party, union fees,

All for progress: aren’t you grateful

Atienoyo?

Visitors need much attention,

All the more when I work at night

That girl spends too long at the market,

Who will teach her what is right?

Atieno rising fourteen, 

Atienoyo.

Atieno has had a baby 

So we know that she is bad.

Fifty fifty it may live 

And repeat the life she had

Ending in post partum bleeding,

Atienoyo.

Atieno’s soon replaced.

Meat and sugar more than all

She ate such a narrow life

Were lavished on her funeral.

Atieno’s gone to glory,

Atienoyo

SECTION A (20 Marks)

COMPREHENSION AND SUMMARY.

1. Read the passage below carefully and then answer the questions that follow.

My pet is a dog, his name is Nene. He has brown and black fur and his hind legs are slightly shorter than the front ones. His ears are always upright. I can remember certainly well the day my father brought him home. It was on 17th December, 2015. At that time he was a puppy of two months, it was surely the best day of my life. I held him and tried to be good at him, but it was a bad day for him since he had been separated from his mother and other puppies.

Nene did not eat or drink anything the whole day. Of course I was happy to have him for my own, but his cries made me feel sorry for him and I promised to take good care of him. After three days, he started eating well and even played with me.

Nene is a lovely dog, he is loved by all members of our family. He comes to great me whenever I come back from school. He wags his tail and lies down ready to play. He is an intelligent and obedient dog I have ever seen.

After finishing my homework, I always play with him. My mother often tells me, "Mark, I am happy you got what you have always wanted". We feed him once a day, we provide him with plenty of water throughout the day, along with dog-food. To make him clean we give him a bath with dog-shampoo once a week. We also clean his kennel every day. Every year, we take him to the veterinary clinic for vaccinations. He is both a protector and a friend.

QUESTIONS

(a) Answer the following questions by using the right information from the passage.

(i) Who was keeping the dog?

(ii) When was the dog brought home?

(iii) Why do you think Nene was crying?

(iv) How many times was Nene fed in a day?

(v) Why was Nene taken to the veterinary clinic?

 

(b) For each of the following statements, write TRUE if the statements is correct or FALSE if the statement is not correct.

(i) The dog had brown and black fur.......

(ii) Nene was a protector and a friend ......

(iii) Mark did not like to play with the dog......

(iv) Nene's ears were always upright......

(v) Nene was brought home when he was three months old........

2. Read the following passage and answer the question that follows in the blank spaces provided.

Sports and games are necessary for maintaining health and physical fitness. Involving oneself in competitive sports and games encourages the sense of competition. Being a captain helps to provide the person with leadership qualities. Playing as a team encourages cooperation among players.

You may ask yourself, “If I spend my time in sports and games when should I study?” Here is the solution; study in the morning as the mind is still fresh and play in the evening as the mind is tired since sports and games make us mentally active. Remember the saying which says that “all study and no play makes Jack a dull boy”.

List down five advantages of participating in sports and games:

SECTION A (20 Marks)

COMPREHENSION AND SUMMARY.

1. Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions that follow.

Drugs are chemical substances that can change the way one thinks and works. People used drugs to change their feelings. The most abused drugs are marijuana or cocaine, heroin and alcohols. Drug abuse is common in almost all the developed and developing countries. Billions of dollars are spent internationally for preventing drug abuse, treating and fighting drug related crimes.

Drug abuse causes multiple problems in countries and communities. Firstly, it causes medical and psychological problems. It is obvious that addicts cannot function as normal members of the society. They neglect or abuse their families and eventually they require expensive treatment or hospitalization. In Tanzania especially in urban areas, it is common to see teenagers who are not only weak but also sick. These young men and women are so aggressive and they constantly break the law. In addition, they are extremely violent as they easily get into physical fights. These Tanzanian addicts pose a vivid example of the medical and Psychological problems faced by the addicts all over the world.

The second problem caused by drug abuse is the increase of crimes. There some crimes which are either drug influenced or drug related. These crimes are petty or organized ones. Drug addicts are likely to involve themselves into such petty crimes as robbery, burglary and theft. They do so because they want money to buy drugs and food. It is worth noting that most drug addicts are not employed. Drug dealers can also organize themselves into criminal gangs which get money from drugs. Police and legal resources are therefore needed to fight crime related to drugs or the crimes influenced by drugs.

However, the threat of drugs can be fought successfully if some strategies are employed. Education on drug abuse is the first way of combating the problem. People especially children need to be educated at home or in school about drugs. People need to be aware of drugs so that they can avoid using them. Also, families and counselors need to talk to children and people at risk. Parents need to take care of their children and help them to become responsible citizens. Moreover, jobs need to be created to give people sources of steady income. However, effective laws should be enacted so that the criminals can be caught and taken to the court.

Although the problem of drug abuse may seem impossible to eliminate easily, there are concrete strategies that can be taken to weaken drug dealing in the society. The danger of drugs is too great to ignore.

Questions:

(a) Answer the following questions with reference to the passage.

(i) Where in Tanzania is drug abuse mostly practiced?

(ii) Who is a drug addicted?

(iii) Why are drug addicts involved in crimes?

(iv) Explain the meaning of the expression, “Multiple problems”.

(v) Give three ways of eliminating drug abuse.

(b) For each of the following statements, write TRUE if the statement is correct or FALSE if the statement is not correct.

(i) Countries spend a lot of money to fight drug abuse………………

(ii) Drug addicts are very polite……………………….

(iii) Parents have roles to play in combating drug abuse……………..

(iv) Usually people who use drugs do not break the law…………………..

(v) The problem of drug abuse is so big that we cannot solve it…………….

2. Read the following passage then write five descriptive words used in the passage.

Wind is air in motion. The chief cause of winds is the difference in the pressure of the air. Heated air near the earth’s surface, being light, rises into the higher regions while cold air from the surrounding regions moves into this low pressure area to equalize the pressure of the atmosphere. This movement of the air is called wind. Winds blow from areas of high pressure to areas of low pressure. Winds are named by the direction from which they blow, but the deflection of the winds is due to the rotation of the earth. Winds are deflected to the right in the Northern Hemisphere, and to the left in the Southern Hemisphere.

 Cooperation in East Africa started many years ago. Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda in particular have had cooperation since the early 20th Century. For example, there was the customs union between Uganda and Kenya in 1917, where as, Tanganyika joined in 1927.

 The East African Community itself had a long history too. It was originally founded in 1967 but, it collapse in 1977, partly because of disagreements in the political philosophies of the three countries; dictatorship under Idi Amini Dada in Uganda, socialism in Tanzania and capitalism in Kenya. Later on, president Mwinyi of Tanzania, Daniel Arap Moi of Kenya and Yoel Museveni of Uganda signed the Treaty of East African Cooperation in Arusha Tanzania on 30th November 1993. They established a tripartite cooperation the cooperation embraced many areas including political social, cultural, research and technology, defence, security, legal and financial affairs. On 30th Nov. 1999, a treaty for the -re – establishment of the East African Community was signed and it came into force on 7th July 2000. Burundi and Rwanda joined the East African community in 2007.

 There are governance structures that serve the East African Community. The East African court of justice in the judicial arm of the community. The court oversees the interpretation and application of the 1999 Treaty that established the EAC. The legislation arm of the community is the East African legislative Assembly (EALA). The Assembly has 27 members countries. One of the functions of EALA is to debate and approve the budget of the community. Since inauguration, the EALA has had several sittings in Arusha, Nairobi and Kampala.

 Though faced with numerous challenges, the EAC has had some achievement and has outlined some future plans. One key achievement is the introduction of the East African passport which was launched on 1st April 1999. This passport was introduced in order to make border crossing for East African easier.

SECTION A
COMPREHENSION AND SUMMARY

I. Read the following passage carefully and then answer the questions that follow:

In some cultures girls are sometimes forced to get married at a very early age. Parents force their daughters into marriage to get the dowry. Another reason is the fear that their daughters might get pregnant before they are properly married. It is considered shameful to the parents for a girl to get pregnant out of wedlock!

Early marriages put girls at a great risk. At that early age, the girls are physically not matured and developed enough to become mothers.

Early marriages also result in early and frequent childbirths and large families.

Forced early marriages deny girls the right to enjoy their childhood, the right to education and the right to choose the husbands of their own age groups and choices. When the girls are forced to marry men who are older than themselves and out of their choices, they are likely to become widows at an early age. After their husbands have died, the young widows are left to take care of their children on their own.

Customs and traditions do not guarantee that a young wife will inherit her husbands property. They violate the girls rights to make informed choices and to own property.

There are other factors too which force girls to engage in sexual relations before they get legal marriages. These include unequal power relations and economic hardships. The girls are exposed to unwanted pregnancies and to sexually transmitted diseases including HIV/AIDS.

Unplanned pregnancies and abortions are common problems among young girls worldwide. This is why girls suffer more from pregnancy related complications and infants deaths.

 

 

Choose the best answer for each of the following questions.

 

 (i) The writer says that girls are forced into early marriages because:-

  1. They want to get babies
  2. Their parents face economic hardships.
  3. They do not fear pregnancies.
  4. They want to choose their husbands.

(ii) In order to avoid health risks, girls should get married when:

  1. They are young
  2. Their dowry is paid
  3. They are physically not developed
  4. They are fully grown up

(iii) Due to early marriage girls:

  1. Enjoy their young
  2. Enjoy their right to education
  3. Miss their own age – mates
  4. Miss their childhood plays.

(iv) A widow is one who has:

  1. Been forced to marry young
  2. Lost her pregnancy
  3. Lost her spouse in death
  4. Been left to care for her children.

(v) Most girls are forced to marry men who are:

  1. Older than themselves.
  2. Young than themselves
  3. As old as themselves.
  4. From their age group

(vi) The word “wedlock” simply means the state of being?

  1. Unmarried
  2. Married
  3. Traditional
  4. Pregnant.

(vii) In the opinion of the writer, early marriages:

  1. Deny parents big dowries.
  2. Help the girls to get husbands of their choice
  3. Are a serious hindrance to the progress of girls
  4. Should be discouraged in modern societies.

(viii) The writer is certain that when girls are forced to marry old men they:

  1. Will get many children
  2. Will end up alone quickly
  3. Will be treated.
  4. Will become independent of their husbands.
