    Sina hakika kama wana JF waliiona hii hapa mtandaoni, ilikua forwarded kwangu few weeks ago and I loved it, hongera zimwendee mwandisi wake.....enjoy nawe.

    Hi,
    Hope this will make you smile if not laugh.
    Have a nice day.

    You are very primitive if you have never boarded a luxury DCM daladala
    to Mbagala rangi tatu!
    I am very serious, you must be in another world altogether. YOU are not
    in Bongoland!!!
    Why dont you prove me rightor wrong and take a trip from ferry to
    Mbagala? Or much better Mbagala to Mwenge or Kawe this weekend????
    Back to Mbagala. So I did this experiment last weekend.
    Bored and hopeless I decided to just go to Mbagala, then Kongowe,then
    to Kibada, then Mji mwema, then Kigamboni, then board the dangerous MV
    Alina or Kivukoni ferry accross the ocean then a bus to Mtoni and call it a good
    and blessed day.
    That is a poor mans' tourism.Just go around, drink madafu and go back to
    your so called home! It is your home anyway, no matter if the roofing is
    grass!
    The whole round trip costs only 2,000 bob Tourism is not only about
    Manyara, Serengeti and Selous.
    I boarded a noisy and smoky TOYOTA DCM bus from Ferry to Mbagala Rangi
    Tatu and it was a trip to hell. I did not count but I could guess we
    were more than 80 in a 40 seat
    bus.This is bongo!
    Some of the passengers were getting through the windows and others were
    getting through the door! Nothing strange for Mbagala citizens! This is
    perfectly normal.
    Some young men were chewing sugar cane in the bus and several women had
    buckets of fresh fish, mostly sardines. Others were eating oranges and
    fried fish...that is total freedom!!!
    There were few young men smoking in the bus and no one dared to say
    anything!!! Say a word and you may end up in a hospital bed with several
    stitches on your scalp plus tetanus if you are not already caput.
    The bus was full but the conductor said there was a lot of space, just
    squeeze into the bus...once the head enters, you are inside!!!
    "Kuna nafasi za kulala!!!siti bado kibaaaao, gari haijai, inajaa ndoo ya
    maji!!!""
    Don't worry,some can even go up into the carrier. And there were not less
    than ten up there. They must pay 200 bob before they are allowed to
    climb the ladder to heaven.
    When at last the driver was convinced that even the door cannot be
    closed, we started our luxurious trip.
    There were fumes of all kinds...alcohol, cigarettes, fish and of course
    some exhaust from some places and holes.
    "We dada uwe unanyoa j amani !!! Mrembo mzuri lakini kikwapa kinanuka!!!"
    "Mpashe huyooo...kasuka nywele utazania kalambwa na ng'ombe!!! Eti ndio
    katoa shilingi alfu saluni! mie kama ni mke wangu namyoa usiku...zooote
    akiamka kama kibwengo!!"
    "Mrembo gani huyu hebu mwone midomo kama subiani...hivi anajiona
    kapendeza sanaaaa!!! Eti wanaiga wazungu lipustiki!!!"
    "Kama ni mke wangu wallah nakuapia talaka saba!!! Ati anajifanya miss
    tanzania ...kumbe kalalia mlo wa mhogo na mchicha!!!"
    I knew something was brewing...not good!!!
    A middle aged man at the back seat began to vomit...and it was nasty!!!
    "Eheee!!! gongo la kigamboni hilo !!!."
    Kwani Kigamboni kuna gongo la bure??? Pesa yangu nakula...nitakutoa
    nishai...Wee kama huna hela shauri lako macho kama kenge kasoro mkia
    etc etc.. We pretended not to laugh, lest the wrath of the devils turn upon
    us.
    We mama mbona unanikalia? na minguo yako imelowa
    misamaki???unajua bei ya hii suruali yangu??
    Umewahi kukaliwa weee,koma kabisa!!! kama una ubavu si ushuke ukapande
    taxi??? Wee mama si ungepanda ungo,mwanga mkubwa wee!!! and so on and on and on!!!
    We ended up at Kilwa Road Police station!!!
    Not from the foul and filthy language and insults but from a totally
    different story.
    The so called conductor, who I can tell you never attended any school,
    began collecting money straight away.
    As usual some young snake- generation (mzao wa nyoka?) skin head,
    pretended that he was deep asleep, of course after taking cheap gongo
    at Kigamboni. The conductor woke him up roughly demanding bus fare. The red
    eyed son of the earth , with a pungent smell of a mixture of cheap alcohol
    retorted"I dont have a single cent! You can do to hell"The conductor was not a fool. He went around collecting other passengers fares and went back to the red eyed young devil.
    This time everyone knew that a something terrible would soon happen. He
    took the drunk by the collar and demanded money. The young devil
    produced a knife and the conductor produced a screw driver, and it was a
    madmans' house.
    "Dereva peleka gari polisi!!! Kuna mchizi hataki kulipa halafu ana kisu!!!
    Lazima aende selo huyu!! "
    By then we were near police station, Kilwa road.
    The driver took the overloaded bus to Kilwa road police station. Someone in the bus said:
    "hivi kweli abiria tunapelekwa polisi kwa ajili
    ya shilingi mia mbili tu?? Mimi nitamlipia!" The bus had already parked.
    A policeman came and asked what was the big deal! "Afande kulikuwa na
    Chizi hataki kulipa lakini mimi nitamlipia!"
    Come on...did you come for fashion show at a police station?
    Everyone in the bus come down, one by one and you driver come and write
    a report inside.
    "Mmekuja kuuza sura hapa? gari imejaa kama ile ya Mererani, nanyi abiria
    mnakubali kupangwa kama sangara!!!
    Halafu unadhani utaondoka hivi hivi tu hapa? Gari yako kwanza ni mbovu
    na hii ni wiki ya usalama haijakaguliwa!!!"
    The man who was vomiting could not come down. He alone was left at the back seat of the bus ,snoring!
    We spent more than one hour under police watchful eyes and at last we
    were allowed to board our beloved bus...
    I dont know what the driver did but there was a very good smile on
    the policemans face when we were leaving, he even wished us safari
    njema!!!
    Bon voyage.
    Jaribu na wewe kama huamini.
    I remember someone in high places mentioned "MABASI YA KASI"... or was it a
    dream??? Yanakuja lini?
    Karibu Mbagala

    Kila mwanamke anayeishi Mbagala lazima ajue kuvaa bukta/skin-tight/kaptula ndani ya gauni. Hii ni kukuwezesha kupandia dirishani - kumbuka enzi za UDA Bayankata!

    i just love that article, huyu mwandishi kanikumbusha mbali sana,
    yani ni kama vile nilikuwa nasoma novel zile za literature enzi za secondary. Au kwa wale waliokuwa wakisoma gazeti la sunday nation la kenya, kuna jamaa alikuwa anajiita whispers a.k.a son of the soil, ni marehemu sasa hivi ndo alikuwa anaandika story za namna hiyo. So bro/sisy if you are not a writer yet consider being one coz you can do it well.otherwise ni ukweli mtupu kuhusu mbagala na usafiri. BIg up sana

    I hate liars. I hate discrimination and other things like that.
    the problem of transport in Dar is spread everywhere and is not unique or peculiar to mbagala. Vist all Dar's corners you will witness how people fight each other when boardered in commuter buses particularly during the morning and evening.

    I live in mbagala. We do have the problem of transport but not to such extent. The guy has exagrated the issue. Anyway I hope we will be able to smile in the coming few years.
