    Do you remember Ocol?

    He said,

    What is Africa
    To me?

    Blackness,
    Deep, deep fathomless
    Darkness;

    Africa,
    Idle giant
    Basking in the sun,
    Sleeping, snoring,
    Twitching in dreams;

    Diseased with a chronic illness,
    Choking with black ignorance,
    Chained to the rock
    Of poverty,

    And yet laughing,
    Always laughing and dancing,
    The chains on his legs
    Jangling;

    Displaying his white teeth
    In bright pink gum,
    Loose white teeth
    That cannot bite,
    Joking, giggling, dancing....

    Stuck in the stagnant mud
    Of superstitions,
    Frightened by the spirits
    Of the bush, the stream,
    The rock,
    Scared of corpses. . .

    He hears eerie noises
    From the lakeside
    And from the mountain top,
    Sees snakes
    In the whirlwind
    And at both ends
    Of the rainbow;

    The caves house his gods
    Or he carries them
    On his head
    Or on his shoulder
    As he roams the wilderness,
    Led by his cattle,
    Or following the spoor
    Of the elephant
    That he has speared
    But could not kill;

    Child,
    Lover of toys,
    Look at his toy weapons,
    His utensils, his hut....
    Toy garden, toy chickens,
    Toy cattle,
    Toy children. . .

    Timid,
    Unadventurous,
    Scared of the unbeaten track,
    Unweaned,
    Clinging to mother's milkless breasts
    Clinging to brother,
    To uncle, to clan,
    To tribe

    To blackness,

    To Africa,

    Africa
    This rich granary
    Of taboos, customs,
    Traditions. . . .


    Mother, mother,
    Why,
    Why was I born
    Black?


    Enzi hizoo, kumbukumbu wadau

    F Born.

    habari zenu wakuu,mwaka huu mwezi wa tatu udsm ilikuwa 25 kwenye best universities in africa ila list mpya ya july udsm imeshuka vibaya sana mpaka 38

    angalia hapa Ranking Web of World universities: Top Africa

    je wadau tuishauri nini serikali yetu ili kuboresha vyuo vyetu?

    mimi binafsi namalizia bachelor yangu ya telecommunications & computer science engineering hapa europe,hiki chuo ninachosoma 4 years ago wakati naanza kusoma kilikuwa miundo mbinu yake mizuri ila sio sana ila katika kipindi hiki cha miaka minne wameboresha kila kitu kuanzia majengo ya kufundishia,kuongeza waalimu,kozi mpya nyingi sana zimeanzishwa,mabweni ya wanafunzi yameboreshwa sana,student exchange program imeboreshwa zaidi yaani mamia ya wanafunzi wanakuja na wengine kwenda nchi mbalimbali kubadilishana ujuzi na serikali yao ndio inalipia gharama zote hizo.

    yaani ndani ya miaka minne hii kwa kweli nikiwaangalia roho inauma sana, sijui serikali yetu hawawezi kuiga mambo kama haya,dah tanzania bado tuna safari ndefu sana kwa kweli
