Sesi, Naendaeli, Rukia, Flora, Kokiamba, Elizabeth, Upendo, Priscilla… are many of the women who have taught me so much and whom I admire so much.

What to say about them… the truth is that I can only say that with each of them they have given me more than one reason to feel that admiration.

They are born workers especially for their children, for being able to get them ahead they do anything and the most amazing thing with a big smile. It’s something I always say but in general on the subject of attitude they take the honor roll.

And it’s something that I’m trying to apply, because as I always say, what they teach you is worth more than what you can contribute.

They still have a lot to advance, if it remains for us to imagine them, they have neither the same rights nor privileges as men by no means. Although it is true that we are seeing small changes such as: Samia Suluhu Hassan, current president of Tanzania, the first of the country.

There are many cases of single-parent families in which the mother is alone and takes care of her children since the husband has abandoned them, it happens a lot here. And also due to a subject of education and sex education, they usually have an average of 4.83 children per woman. So they live really complicated situations. I admire them for their attitude but I think they should give themselves much more courage. I have seen and lived situations in which my soul has fallen at my feet, I felt like screaming, and saying don’t consent, impose. But things are not so easy.

And today I want to pay a tribute to THEM: Sesi. We met in March 2020, in Arusha. His gaze conveyed to me a tenderness that I cannot describe, it was personalized kindness.  She lived on 25 square meters with her two grandchildren and her son. Their daughter-in-law abandoned them because of her son’s alcoholism problems and the four of them lived in that small space, with a bed and a “sofa”.  She was the only one who contributed to the family economy, despite her advanced age and physical limitations, she sold coal when she could. His son, more than contributing and making life easier for him, did the opposite and when he drank too much, he used to put his hand on him. I can’t even imagine it, my tears are bursting out, such a kind and hardworking woman who has to suffer the violence of her own son. She died last year but I won’t stop thinking about her. Sesi, wherever you are, I can only say that in just a few hours you taught me a lot, you are an example for everyone.
