Minto. Mwanyagetinge. Nyaituga, omwana o baba. Tegerera ngotebie rero amang'ana araa amakong'u pa!

Kare, kare riria chingoko chiagakamirwe omogaka narenge seito Makairo, aria amaninko Gusii, ang'e ne echiro eria yakumete mono Gusii ekorokwa Kebirigo.

Onye gokagete buna oyo no omogano igoro buna seito tware konywa erongongori etainekiri, kana koganya. Gose onye gokagete ngogotebia nde buna seito tware gokama chingoko, kana gokenderera agwo ekiiriri kio omotembe. Tindi gwatora bobisi buna seito tware gokama chingoko ekero oboremo bwabete chincherere totabwate ase nonya n’ embori okoriisia.

Oyo no omogano bw' omogaka oyomo obwate chisemi, korende ekero twarenge abana nigo tware komosekerera. Omogaka oyio nigo are korokwa Mogaka. Magoroba iga ko omobaso okendire nigo agaterekire ebusaa yo obori na abasani baye. (Tari eye ye chibando rero nonya na abaisia abasiniini bakonywa). Kobasiibire ekegara ne chinkore bakonakoererania buna abana ba ng’ina omo, nigo bagaterire emeino emiya. Oyo nanchente ginkonakobategerera nigo orenge korokwa “Mosaiga.”

Siberia ong’e, aye siberia ong’e, mosaigaa

Ayeee, aye mosaiga

Toa monto, mosaiga toa monto okobayabaya

Ayeee, aye mosaiga

Kobasiibire bono Mogaka orangeria omong’ina oye ore korokwa Mong’ina. Korende tare komoroka Mong’ina. Nigo akamorangeirie na amasikani.

“Aye, baba yane, mosubati on Bosire,” Mogaka arangeria.

“Ee!”

“Gaki tomentere a mache a morero.”

Mong’ina nere okonyora erio konye orasiibire ekemite na abang’ina abaamate kobakona kogosoria na goteera.

Rero ndero, toe

Echae ya morero toe

“Mosubati o Bosire naye gaki,” Mogaka omotebia kagoseka. “Ntomanyete buna tari chae ya morero mokonywa agwo chikoni.”

“Nyakerario,” Mong’ina arangeria mosubati oye.  “Ereria iso amache gose natotigane tonywe echae eye Kemuma arosia.”

Abang’ina na abagaka bonsi baseka mono mbaka baturungana. Mong’ina nigo arenge omong’ina bwamaseko mono. 

Nyakerario kabamenteire amache, abagaka basiiba ake igo. Nabo rinde kware konyoora abasae bande buna oyomo ore korokwa Mong’are bakonywa bwango, bwango ne endamwamu. 

“Aye omoisia oyo Ratemo gwatindire,” omogaka onde ore korokwa Nyambati amotebia.

“Ee, tiga agende,” abagaka bonsi bancherana.

Mong’are o Ratemo gachiire bachaka kogamba buna are omonywa bobe.

“Mbuya twamoseria,” Mogaka ateba. “Mwaigwa bono buna rinde anywa akooga bogakia?”

“Ayio na amake,” Nyambati ateba. “Rinde momura one Momanyi taigwa ‘esagasaga’ botuko agachia gosoka akamonyora araire omochachaku ime?”

“Naki amokorete?” omogaka onde akaboria.

“Gaki Momanyi one ne emechando. Nigo amokururete akamobeka as konye arorire chinsanako magoroba.”

Bonsi, abagaka, abang’ina, na abana bagaseka mbaka bagaturungana. Omomura oyomo ekegara gekamotokeria. Tamanyete buna ka abagaka bakogamba nigo okoratiga konywa gwategerera.

“Yaa naye karwe aa tonara egento eke kia abagaka,” Nyambati akamotebia.

“Tiga bagende bonsi,” Mogaka ateba. 

“Ee, tiga Mochumbe ache atwaterie chinko botaraira,” Mong’ina akabatebia.

“Yaya,” Mogaka agakana. “Tumia ebiemba. Egento eke Mochumbe asiiba kiamokorire richara arabaise gweaka egesire.”

Mochumbe na bagisangio baye bakagenda gochia saiga gotegerera eretio “BPC Swaeri Sabesi” (BBC Swahili Service). 

Abagaka bakorora buna abasae bachiire bagatoma Nyakerario gochia kiage abaretere ebuga. Bagatiera na konywa. Mogaka agaansa go kwana amang’ana onde ataare komanya engencho yaye.

“Esese isiko, ekemoni nyomba! Esese isiko, ekemoni nyomba!”

Inche erio nigo narenge omwana omosiniini. Tinamanyete eng’encho ye, “Esese isiko, ekemoni nyomba.” Korende ngakina, ngakora esekenderi ngacha mache ng’umbu, Amerika.

Gaki tiga mbatebie buna Abamerika nigo banchete chisese ne ebimoni mono. Okonyora ekemoni keroseirie nyomba kemenyete buya, nonya mbeba nchiyo kebwenerete goita. Endagera nigo gekogorerwa enga ebisuguti kiabekerwa na amabere. Nonya nase gekobeka echabu go kiabutiarire nigo kebwate abanyene bana goitora. 

Ne esese nero nigo yanchire mono. Emenyete nyomba, egoikaransa esoba seti igoro yarigereria etelebiseni na abanyene. Esese ya Amerika oise konyereta seito Kenya nigo erakwe bwango mono. Nyama mbese sese ya Amerika terikoria. Tenga buna Ondieki yaito yakaminyokirie egesusu gose egechure yabwata twaria, twanyea amauga. Buna ekemoni kia Amerika, esese ya Amerika nigo ekoroserigwa endagera special ekogorwa korwa etuka. 

Tiga bono naende, Omogusii ominto, ngotebie egento kende kiamaseko. Abamerika naende nkoratwara bare amasindano korora buna ning’o obwate esese gose ekemoni egeseera. Amasindano ayio ataraika nigo bakoira chisese ne ebimoni baakana chibesa biasibigwa na konintwa chinchara. Omobui bwa amasindano nigo akoegwa egekombe buna keria abagosoria bakoeegwa. 

Nimanyete ngoteba ore buna, “Etwini gaki naye! Esese eegwe egekombe kiamaminyoko?”

Maene pi ndie esese, tindigokong’aina, Nyaituga o baba. Boria onde bwensi omenyete mache ng’umbu.

Chisese ne ebimoni kobiarwarire Abamerika tibari gotiga bikwe. Nigo bakobiira chinyagetari chi ebimoni ne chisese. Nimanyete Omoamerika oyomo oakanete $4,000 (Ksh. 300,000) kobaara esese endwaire. 

Esese koyangire kobwena nigo bagokora egento gekorokwa, “Putting it to sleep” – bakonyebeta esindani yakwa ng’ooora. Koyakuure, banyeira ase akorokwa, Pet Cemetery, ase chimbeera chie chisese, ebimoni, ne ching’iti chinde Abamerika batugete nyomba chigotindekwa. Kobanyetindekire nigo bachachana na gwechwanachania buna omoibori okwereirwe no omwana. 

Esese isiko, ekemoni nyomba.
