Huyu Patrick Lumumba ni jamaa kule Kenya anapenda sana ku-twist methali na misemo ya kiingereza yet at the same time securing the message.Following are examples of some of his intelligent twists:

A NORMAL PERSON : People who live in glass houses should not throw stones.
PLO LUMUMBA : Individuals who make their abodes in vitreous edifices would be advised to refrain from catapulting perilous projectiles.

************************************************** *****

NORMAL PERSON : Twinkle, twinkle, little star
PLO LUMUMBA : Scintillate, scintillate, asteroid minim.

NORMAL PERSON : All that glitters is not gold.
PLO LUMUMBA : All articles that coruscate with resplendence are not truly auriferous.

************************************************** *****

NORMAL PERSON : Beggars are not choosers
PLO LUMUMBA : Sorting on the part of mendicants must be interdicted.

************************************************** *****

NORMAL PERSON : Dead men tell no tales
PLO LUMUMBA : Male cadavers are incapable of rendering any testimony.

************************************************** *****

NORMAL PERSON : Beginner's luck
PLO LUMUMBA : Neophyte's serendipity.

************************************************** *****

NORMAL PERSON : A rolling stone gathers no moss
PLO LUMUMBA : A revolving lithic conglomerate accumulates no congeries of small, green, biophytic plant.

************************************************** *****

NORMAL PERSON : Birds of a feather flock together
PLO LUMUMBA : Members of an avian species of identical plumage tend to congregate.

************************************************** *****

Hii ni moja ya kasumba mbaya ya baadhi ya wasomi wetu.

Nikiwa mdogo sikupenda kabisa kusoma magazeti ya Kiingereza ya hapa kwetu japokuwa nilishinikizwa. Nilielezwa kwamba ni namna nzuri ya kujifunza lugha hii ngeni.
Interest ya kusoma ilinijia nilipopata vitabu kutoka UK, vilivyoandika in Simple English

Patrick Lumumba aliwalenga audience wa aina gani?

To write with such bombast (see link) all it takes is a dictionary,idle time and a passable IQ.

However, if you can talk like that, unaided, then that is truly of Churchillian wit and almost Dickensian diction.

Na kwanini wewe Mtanzania, Mswahili, au mtoka bara, utamani kuongea kwa kutumia misamiati hiyo lugha ya wenzio?
mi navyojua Linguistic wote wanajua kwa ufasaha lugha yao ya kwanza, na ndio wanaongeza nyingine. Kurukia lugha nyingine kabla ya lugha yako si faida!!

Acha mtazamo finyu..people are becoming citizens of the world na
kama ni fahari kwake kuongea lugha ya kiingereza..so be it!
Na kwa taarifa yako jamaa pia ni mufti katika lugha ya Kiswahili!

mimi nilijifunza kiingereza toka nikiwa bado mdogo, lakini bahati yangu nzuri kiingereza changu kilikuwa sio cha ubishoo, bombast, kilikuwa hasa katika ufundi wa kutumia maneno ya kawaida na kujenga picha. katika uzungumzaji wangu wa lugha nyingi tu, iwe ni kabila yangu, kiswahili, kiingereza au hata kabila tu lingine, huwa napata burudani sana nikikutana na mtu anaongea lugha FASAHA. anachagua maneno hayo hayo lakini jinsi anavyoyatumia, anajenga maana mbalimbali na kutoa ujumbe wa aina mbalimbali: kutilia mkazo, utani, mahaba mazito, kutuliza, kuhuzunisha, kuliwaza, kufafanua jambo, n.k.

Nilipoona title hii: "lovers of English language..." nilipata hamu ya kuona kuna kitu gani, kumbe kilichozungumzwa sio hasa kwa ajili ya lovers of English language, maana niseme tu kwamba lugha hapo imebakwa. wala sifikiri kwamba kuna haja ya kuchukia kiingereza, au kifaransa. Na pia haikuzuii kujifunza lugha yako ya kabila, lugha ya kiswahili au lugha nyingine yoyote.

kujua lugha yoyote ni kupata silaha unayoweza kuitumia kwa faida yako. kujua lugha kwa ufasaha ni silaha kali zaidi. watu huguswa zaidi na mpangilio wa maneno, sauti, na vitu kama hivyo, na huweza kuhamasisha watu na pia kutumika kama kaulimbiu kwa vizazi na vizazi. fikiria maneno kama "I have a dream..."; au vile watu kama kina Mtikila wanavyoweza kutumia maneno kwa ufundi, na hata kuunda maneno kama "gabacholi" na likafikisha ujumbe kwa uhakika ziadi.

hata ukichunguza watu kama kina Obama, moja ya mafanikio yake ni jinsi anavyoweza kuhamasisha watu wanaomsikiliza, wakamwona anafaa kutokana na jinsi anavyoweza kufikisha ujumbe wake kwa uhakika. Hakuna bombast hapo. hata ulaya, marekani, si kawaida kukuta mtu anafoka bombast. hiyo ni yetu siye wadandiaji, malimbukeni.

Napendekeza hata vita dhidi ya ufisadi, ipiganwe kwa kutumia lugha pia, kwa ustadi, katika kufikisha ujumbe na kuhamasisha watu.

Nakubaliana na unayosema.
Inasikitisha kwamba hapa nyumbani hakuna kabisa msisitizo kuhusu kuzungumza/kuandika Kiswahili kwa ufasaha kama ambavyo Wafaransa wamekuwa wakizingatia kwenye lugha yao.

Kuzungumza lugha kwa ufasaha kuna uhusiano mkubwa na usomaji wa vitabu. Inavutia sana kwamba umekuwa na utashi huo toka utotoni.
