You may say that the former Tanzania’s president was a rough person without mercy, but Tanzanians will tell you a different story. Whatever he did was for the normal Tanzanian citizen.He had stood firm on his decision making. He didn’t care whether to lose friends or not. All what he cared for was the Tanzanians. He will be missed by many.
In the beginning, it wasn’t easy to cope with the lose of my uncle. He was a great friend to me. That Sunday, I woke up early. Prepared to pay him a visit. After I was done, I decided to check my phone for any updates.
The shocking message struck me like a lightning.” He is no more!” “Why? Why? Why couldn’t you wait for me? I needed to have a talk with you. Why couldn’t you hold it any longer?” I found myself yelling.
Is it true that death happens to the good people leaving the delinquent to continue with their lives? Uncle meant so much to me. If only I knew that his days were near, I could have visited him like yesterday. Too unfortunate that death is a secret that no one can guess when it may occur.
Now that he is gone, I have to admit that there is nothing I can do, but his image and all the good memories will take long to be erased from my mind.
May he have a peaceful time with the angels. His love will live as an evidence that he once existed. Rest in peace uncle!
