UFAHAMU

  1. Soma kifungu cha habari kifuatacho kisha jibu maswali kwa kuandika hrufi ya jibu sahihi katika jedwali lilichorwa chini ya swali.

Watu wote walirudi makwao. Shida ilienea katika nchi ya Kufikirika. Watu walikuwa hawakufanya kazi kwa muda wa miaka sita mfululuzo kwa sababu wote walishughulika katika kutafuta tiba ya ugumba wa Mfalme na utasa wa Malkia. Hasara zilizotokea katika muda ule zilikuwa ni kubwa na nyingi; hata zilikuwa hazilingani na hasara zozote nyingine ambazo wato wa Kufikirika waliweza kukumbuka kuwa waliziona zamani katika nchi yao. Mashamba yalitupwa.  Mitambo, vinu na viwanda vilikuwa havina watu. Mazizi na maghala yalikuwa tupu kabisa.  Nusu ya sarafu na majohari katika hazina ilipotea. Kazi katika mashimo na nyingine zilifungwa. Waandishi walitupa chini kalamu zao na wanazuoni waliacha vitabu vyao wazi.

Nchi ambayo zamani ilikuwa ya shibe, utajiri, nguo, tafriji na neema zote sasa ilikuwa imegeuka nchi ya njaa; umasikini na uhitaji wa kila namna ulikuwa mbele ya watu. Maisha haya mapya yalisumbua watu sana hata yakawa hayavumiliki. Afya ya watu ilitishwa na maradhi. Vifo vilitokea kwa wingi mno.  Shida hii ilipaswa kuzuiwa au Wafikirika wote wangalipanguswa katika uso wa ardhi, ilikuwa ni wajibu wa kila mtu kutenda awezavyo kujisaidia mwenyewe, watoto wake nan chi yake. Basi baada ya marejeo kila mtu alijitia katika kazi yake kwa bidii zote.

Isipokuwa watoto, Wafikirika wote walikuwa wana desturi ya kufanya kazi kwa muda mwingi kuliko watu wote katika mataifa mengine ya dunia. Muda wa kufanya kazi katika nchi yao ulikuwa ni saa kumi na mbili. Saa mbili zilitumiwa kwa maburudisho katika michezo saa mbili nyingine zilikuwa ni za mapumziko na saa nane ni za kulala katika kila saa ishirini nan ne au siku moja.  Vitanda vilikuwa havina watu juu baada ya muda wa saa nane za kulala isipokuwa wagonjwa na watoto wadogo wadogo tu. Kama si kwa sababu ya faida ya afya hata saa nane za kulala zingalipunguzwa kuwa saa saba au sita tu. Shauri la kupunguza wakati wa kulala lilipelekwa mbele ya madiwani wan chi ya Kufikirika na wasimamizi wa kazi. Lilikubaliwa na halmshauri ndogo lakini halikufaulu katika halmashauri kuu kwa sababu ilidhaniwa kuwa hofu ya hatari juu ya maisha itakuwa kubwa sana. Kwa hivi halikupata idhini ya serikali.  Wafikirika walikuwa na umoja madhubuti ambao ulisimama imara mbele ya machafuko yoyot. Shauri moja jema lilikubaliwa na kushangiliwa na wot na baya lilikataliwa na kila mtu.

Wafikirika waliweza kufanya kazi bora na za kuajabisha mno wakati wa mataifa mengine walipokuwa wamo katika usingizi, uvivu, anasa au uzembe. Kutwa walikuwa katika kazi na katika fikira za kujistawisha. Mtu ambay hafanyi kazi kwa muda wa saa kumi na mbili alikuwa na aibu kwa mwenziwe; hasara kwa serikali na kwake mwenyewe. Kumwita mtu mvivu katika Kufikirika ilikuwa si dhihaka ya kusameheka ila hatia kubwa mno kwa sababu nchi hiyo haikuwa na mtu mvitu hata mmoja. Kwa sheria za Kufikirika uvivu ulikuwa una tafsiri ya wizi wa wakati.  Mwizi wa wakati alipatilizwa kwa adhabu ngumu sawa na mwizi wa mali au kitu kingine. Kazi kubwa, ngumu na nzito kwa watu wa Kufikirika zilikuwa ni sawa sawa kabisa na mabandia ya mchezo kwa watoto wadogo. Ari ya kila mtu ilikuwa ni kutenda tendo kubwa na lililo bora kuliko mwingine. Hii ni desturi inayodumu hata sasa katika nchi ya Kufikirika

  4. Waliogopa machafuko

 The killing of a lion must be done in a special way. A group of twenty or thirty young Maasai finds a lion and come up to it from all sides. They wear no clothes or ornaments that might hamper them and carry only their spears and shields. They move closer to the lion until it leaps at the nearest man, who throws his spears and protects himself with his shield.  Immediately the other warriors throw their spears at the lion, usually kills it before it can attack them.
