Katika nchi ya ughaibuni kulikuwa na mfalme mwenye dharau na maringo sana, aliwaona wananchi wake kama wajinga. Watu wake waliishi bila amani na walichukia vitendo vya mfalme wao. Mfalme huyo alikuwa anajigamba kuwa yeye ni tajiri kuliko wafalme wote katika nchi za jirani. Kwa ujumla mfalme huyo alikuwa mnyanyasaji na mwenyekebehi nyingi.

imageimageMfalme alikuwa mwenye kufuru sana, hata alidiriki kutamka kwenye mkutano wa hadhara kuwa hajawahi kuona njaa. Mzee mmoja mwenye busara aitwaye Bwana Adili alimwambia mfalme kuwa asihofu atampeleka mahali njaa inakopatikana. Bwana Adili kwa kukubaliana na mfalme walipanga siku ya safari ya kwenda kumwonesha mahali ilipo njaa. Safari hiyo ilikuwa na masharti kuwa hakuna kula chochote asubuhi na hakuna kubeba masurufu yoyote yakiwemo maji, ingawa Bwana Adili kwa ujanja wake alibeba.

Safari ilianza asubuhi mapema huku mfalme akiwa na furaha kubwa ya kwenda kuona njaa. Walitembea mwendo wa saa zisizopungua ?ita, mfalme akawa amechoka sana akamwomba Bwana Adili wapumzike. Uchovu huo imageulitokana na ukweli kwamba mfalme hakuwahi kwenda mwendo mrefu kwa miguu. Wakati wa mapumziko mfalme alimwomba Bwana Adili maji na mkate lakini Bwana Adili alimnyima, walipumzika kwa muda wa saa moja na safari ikaendelea. Ilipofika jioni mfalme alikuwa amechoka kabisa kwani mwendo ulikuwa mrefu na njaa ilimuuma mno. Walipumzika chini ya mti, mfalme alimuuliza Bwana Adili, mbona hatufiki safari yetu? Bwana Adili hakumjibu chochote bali alichukua mkate akala na kunywa maji, mfalme alihisi njaa kali, alimwomba Bwana Adili mkate na maji lakini alimnyima.

Hali ya mfalme ilizidi kuwa mbaya sana, ndipo Bwana Adili akamwambia nitakupa maji na mkate ule lakini uahidi kwa maandishi kuwa utaacha dharau na majivuno kwa watu. Mfalme alipiga magoti mbele ya Bwana Adili na kuchukua karatasi na kalamu aliyopewa na Bwana Adili na kuahidi kwa maandishi kuwa ataacha kabisa tabia ya dharau na majivuno. Bwana Adili alipokea maelezo ya mfalme na akampa mkate na maji. Mfalme alipomaliza kula alimshukuru sana, ndipo Bwana Adili alipomgeukia mfalme na kumweleza kuwa hakuna maskani ya njaa bali hali aliyokuwa nayo mtu asipokula chakula. Waliporudi mfalme aliitisha mkutano wa hadhara. aliwaomba radhi wananchi wake na tangu siku hiyo mfalme aliishi kwa upendo na wananchi wote.

Wild life refers to all animals and plants living in their natural environment. Wild life is very important resources to any country as it produces meat which is used by man as food. Other products from animals and plants include wood, far, skins and ornaments just to mention a few.
The increasing population in Tanzania has also increased the consumption of wildlife products in the country. This has led to the increased destruction of the natural habitat of animals and plants. Therefore, there is a need for intentional measures to conserve it. Such measures are protecting natural vegetation, enforcing law, practicing modern game cropping, avoid poaching, animal control from diseases and enacting by laws of not endangering animals.
Thus to conserve wild life in our environment it is also important to encourage game cropping in places where game species seem to be populated to reduce overgrazing and soil erosion.
Questions
a) Suggest a suitable title for this passage
b) According to the passage mention two effects of increased population in Tanzania to the animals and plants
c) Outline two importance of wild life to mankind
