Niliona nipotezee lakini naomba niseme once and for all. Misiba na mazishi ni kama ibada, ukishiriki sio habari ya kutangaza kama tamasha. Nimeona watu wanataka kunishikilia bango kama mtu asiyehudhuria au asiyeshiriki katika ibada hizi. Kama unataka kufaham nilikuwepo katika misiba yote ya hivi karibuni lakini sikupenda kutangaza uwepo wangu kutokana na kupitia misiba mizito katika maisha yangu kama watu wengine wengi. Siku ya kesho itakuwa miaka 12 tangu nimpoteze baba yangu mzazi na mwaka huu ni miaka mi nne tangu nimpoteze Dada yangu ( mtoto wa kwanza wa baba) i bet you didn’t even know, why? Because I prefer to silently pray for the family and loved ones, I’ve found that only God can bring some relief in these situations. Mtu akifiwa anapitia mambo mengi na anahitaji faraja. Nadhani nimeeleweka. Asanteni na Mungu awatunze wote na familia zenu.
Here are some vintage photos of the family together.
