Giza totoro jukwaani. Sauti ya mtoto aliaye na mshichana anamwongoa kwa wimbo.

“Oowa Oowa mtoto Oowa

Usilie mtoto usilie

Mama kaenda kazini O-owa

Baba kaenda kazini O-owa

Kukuletea haluwa O-owa

Owa Owa mtoto.....

Mara kwawaka umeme na fujo yaanza. Mayowe ya wanawake wanaoomboleza kwa kelele sana na kwa sauti ya kusikitisha sana. Taa zaanza kuwaka polepole na wanawake watatu wanapanda jukwaani polepole. Wawili wanapiga mayowe sana na kulia kwa kwikwi. Mmoja wa hao asikitisha sana maana ni mtoto mbichi wa kama miaka 16 hivi ana mimba na amevaa matambara; mikono kichwani akilia sana. Wa pili ana mtoto mchanga mkononi aliyfunikwa vizuri – mama huyu pia amevaa vizuri lakini analia kwa uchungu. Wa tatu anayepanda jukwaani mbele ana mtoto mgongoni, kitunga kikukuu-kuu alichojiangika begani na tita la kuni kichwani.  Amelemewa sana na mizigo hiyo. Yeye halii lakini anaonyesha huzuni na ananungunika. Mara kwa mara awatazama hao wawili waliao na kusema huku waliao wakipunguza mayowe – asema huku akitua tita la kuni na kitunga.

 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?

  2.                 There is a better view. 
  3.                The living room is her favourite place.

That girl spends too long at the market,

Who will teach her what is right?

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,

Meat and sugar more than all

She ate such a narrow life

Were lavished on her funeral.

Atieno’s gone to glory,

MTIHANI WA NUSU MUHULA KISWAHILI KIDATO CHA PILI

MUDA : SAA 2:00       APRIL, 2020

MAELEKEZO:

  • Mtihani huu una sehemu A,B,C,D na E.
  • Jibu maswali yote katika sehemu zote
  • Majibu yote yaandike kwenye nafsi zilizowekwa.

SEHEMU A :UFAHAMU

1. Soma kifungu cha habari kifuatacho, kasha jibu maswali yanayofuata, kwa kuchagua herufi ya jibu sahihi.

Afrika ni bara tajiri lenye rasilimali nyingi na adhimu. Utajiri wa bara hilo hauendani na utajiri wa wenyeji wa bara hilo, yaani waafrika. Yapo mambo mengi yanayosababisha mambo mbalimbali yaende ndivyo sivyo. Yapo ya kihistoria, kiuchumi, kisiasa na kiutawala.

Nchi mbalimbali za kiafrika hukabiliwa na majanga lukuki . majanga hayo tunaweza kuyagawa katika aina kuu mbili, nayo ni majanga ya asili na “majanga watu”. Majanga ya asili ni kama vile tetemeko la ardhi, mafuriko, ukame, mlipuko wa volcano na vimbunga. Majanga haya hutokana na nguvu za asili za dunia ambazo zipo juu ya uwezo wa binadamu. Aidha, “majanga watu” ni kama vile rushwa, matumizi mabaya ya madaraka, upendeleo, ufujaji wa mali ya umma, matumizi mabaya ya rasilimali za nchi, wivu, choyo na ubinafsi.

Haya yote uwepo wake hutokana na harakati za binadamu katika jamii husika. Kuna watu katika mfumo wa serikali hufumba macho na kuyaziba masikio ili wasione na kusikiliza kilio cha walalahoi. Kati ya watu hao likuki nchini, anajitokeza shujaa mwokozi. Shujaa huyu anaizunguka nchi yake nzima kujinadi kuwa yeye ni mzalendo,atawatoa kutoka nchi dhalimu na kuwavusha kwenye bahari ya misukosuko na mazila mengi hadi kwenye nchi tulivu ya asili na maziwa. Sauti kali inamtoka, ikipasua miamba na kuvunja kila aina ya hofu na uovu wa maneno. Sauti ilijipenyeza masikioni hadi mioyo ya wanajamii kote nchini. Wananchi wake wakampenda na kujipatia tumaini jipya. Hivyo, basi kwa kutumia “vichinjio” vyao wakakata shauri kumpa nafasi ili hatamu aishike. Ama kweli, tabia ni kama ngozi ya mwili, haibadiliki.

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.

(ix) One of the problems of a young wife is that she has:

  1. No guarantee of inheritance
  2. The right to get education
  3. The right to inherit her husband’s property
  4. The right to choose a husband 

 

(x) In the passage the writer suggests that girls engage in sexual relations because of:

  1. Pleasure
  2. Dowry
  3. New technology
  4. Poor living conditions.

 

2. With reference to the passage you have read, answer the following questions:

  1. Mention one reason which makes girls get married early in Africa.
