Chagga Funeral

 Lakini wadau, hii nilishaona imeandikwa kwa wa Nigeria, waJamaica na waChina.

A Tanzanian family was puzzled when the coffin of their dead mother arrived from the US . It was sent by one of her daughters. The dead body was so tightly squeezed inside the coffin that the face touched the glass lid!
When they opened the lid, they found a letter on top, which read as follows: -'Dear brothers and sisters, I am sending our mother's body to you for burial, since it has always been her wish to be buried in the compound of our ancestral home in Machame . Sorry I could not come along as I have been denied leave at work since we are short staffed this month. You will find inside the coffin, under Mama's body, 12 cans of canned fish,10 packets of Royco soup and 8 tins of hot chocolate. Please divide these among yourselves. On Mama's feet, you will find a new pair of Reebok shoes size 9 for Mushi’s eldest son.

Also, there are 2pairs of shoes for Urasa's and Kwayu's daughters.Hope the sizes are correct.Mama is wearing 6 American t-shirts. The large size is for Manka and the others are for my nephews. The 2 new Levis jeans that Mama is wearing are for the boys.

The Swiss watch that Koku wanted for her 21st birthday is on Mama's left wrist. Aunt Rebeka, Mama is wearing the necklace, earrings and the ring that you asked for. Please take them.The 6 white cotton socks that Mama is wearing must be divided among my teenage nephews. Please distribute all these accordingly and if anythingmore is required, let me know since our Pappa is also not doing well nowadays.
Your loving sister!!

Mama Manka
