MTAMA BLUES: A seed must die to live

Posted: March 24, 2017 in Uncategorized

 

Numerically, the man or woman who represents a group is merely one out of many. Administratively, the representative weighs more than many of the conventional members of the group combined. He or she is the ‘Primus Inter Pares’ (PIP) of the group – the first among equals. The representative is the face, image, and voice of the group that the world sees, beholds, and hears. Correspondingly, the demeanor of the representative is the mental picture of the group that the world has. By default, the character of the representative is the yardstick that the world uses for measuring the moral fiber of that group. Speaking about a group and its representative, the people of Mtama must be singing the blues lately, for having a representative who doesn’t represent their personal he represent too the voice of media at large. A seed must die to live.

Blues is a melancholic music – a tune of despondency.
