Be kind to others

Be kind to others
Published: 12 January 2018 (209 Views)
Some people of my ethnic persuasion have little heart or no heart at all for fellow country men. They smile gleefully in a sadistic manner at the misfortunes of others.

Whilst I was walking in Harare CBD one day, I watched this young lady reversing her car from a parking bay. In her frenzied effort to quickly get on the road and drive away, she seemed to have thrown all caution to the wind. The lady reversed straight into a passing big truck, resulting in a big bang and extensive damage to her car.

Instead of helping her out of the wreck and speaking words of comfort, passers-by began laughing and taking videos on their phones. Even a few from the rural community have joined the 'trending stupidity', a few days before the Christmas holidays, a fully laden family car caught fire near Gweshe Shopping Centre in Chiweshe.  Four youths who were busy doing nothing nearby could only point to the burning vehicle without even helping open the doors and dousing the flames.

What is becoming of our Ubuntu, African hospitality and kindness? Oftentimes in urban neighbourhoods, a victim of robbery cries out for help but nobody comes out. A woman confronted by a rapist screams for attention yet the so called neighbours choose to hear no evil.

Love thy neighbour and let's practice what we preach and hear from preachers. Thomas Murisa. Harare.
