Mathias Isuja: End of an Era

with one comment


Bishop Mathias Isuja and Deo Simba

Baba Bishop Mathias Isuja. Thank you for your life. Thank you for your leadership. You’ll be missed, it’s human. But, the good seeds you planted all over Dodoma and central parts of the country will bear witness of what a great mind you’ve always been.

You weren’t feeling well, but you were ready to receive my colleague (Salim Shao) and me and spend over an hour talking about a myriad of things, particularly, about Padre Egidi (RIP).

So, go Baba, go. Rest in Peace.

When it comes to books … children are highly interested. We are the mean ones for not spending as much as we should on books for children and for adults.

Bwama, Kisarawe, Tanzania

Uchaguzi Mkuu umepita. Suluhu kwa mgogoro wa Zanzibar inaendelea kutafutwa. Ni wakati wa kujenga Taifa. Kila mmoja pale alipo ajenge Taifa. Changamoto nyingi zilizojitokeza wakati wa uchaguzi zifanyiwe kazi. Tume ya Taifa ya Uchaguzi iundwe upya kwa kushirikisha wadau wote. Uwazi na uwajibikaji vipewe kipaumbele. Vyombo vya ulinzi na usalama vibaki kuwa mali ya umma — na si vya chama au mhimili fulani katika dola. Ubaguzi wa aina yoyote — ukabila, dini, rangi, asili, kipato, hadhi, ukanda — ni muhimu ufutwe, tena haraka. Vinginevyo, tutakuwa tunakata tawi la mti tulilolikalia. Huenda tusione madhara ya ubaguzi mapema, lakini wakati utafika ambapo hakuna atakayekuwa salama. Tanzania mpya inawezekana. Tanzania ya haki na amani ya kweli inawezekana. Sote tuna wajibu. Pamoja sana.

Inakuhusu. Inanihusu. Inatuhusu

Ndugu zangu,

Bila shaka kila mmoja wetu amesikia kuhusu mauaji yanayofanywa dhidi ya ndugu zetu wenye albinism. Kwa watu waliojitambua na kuvuka imani potofu, watu wanaofikiri kisayansi wanaumizwa sana na matukio haya. Watu wote wenye mapenzi mema wanachukizwa kuona ndugu, jamaa, rafiki, jirani na Watanzania wenzao wakiuwawa eti kwa sababu ya vile walivyoumbwa.

Wakati ambapo ninaungana na watu wote wenye mapenzi mema katika kukemea uovu huu mkuu, nimkumbushe kila mmoja wetu kuwa: Kuuwawa kwa wenzetu wenye albinism hakutuweki sisi salama. Watu wenye imani potovu na wale wanaowachochea kuendelea kuishikilia imani hiyo isiyo na maana hawana mipaka. Kesho, watazua mengine: watasema tafuta viungo vya mtu mwenye kipara, ni dili! Keshokutwa watasema, tafuta watu wanene wanene kidogo! Siku nyingine watasema, watu wembamba. Safari nyingine watazua watu warefu; wafupi; maji ya kunde; weusi sana; wang’avu n.k. Hawana mwisho hawa.

Kwa hiyo, dawa yake ni moja: kukomesha mauaji ya wenzetu wenye albinism sasa na kufutilia mbali kabisa imani potofu.

Kwa pamoja tunaweza. Kumbuka: INAKUHUSU. INANIHUSU. INATUHUSU. Sambaza ujumbe.
