Fixing broken things before they are broken

Postby Panoramic » 1st August 2011, 15:59

Dear Zambia,
In Africa
Why do believe in fixing things after they are broken?! Why cant we look after or correct something (say nipping it in the bud) before it gets broken or needs fixing!?
Or are we of the mentality : NIZA CHITA MAILO
OR
why fix something when its not broken.!!

You took those words right out of my mouth.

Take yesterday for example, I was hanging out with my fellow kaboyi in his boss' yard. I had finished all the garden work in my boss' yard so I thought maybe I should shoot the breeze with my fellow kaboyi next door in this sprawling mayadi neighborhood. Anyway I said to him I said boyi, why don't you fix that fence? He says, what do you mean? I said can't you see it's almost falling apart? He says, it's still standing, isn't it? I said yeah, but even a small wind is enough to blow that thing over. He says, let the wind blow it down then I will fix it but I ain't lifting a finger to fix something that is still standing.

That's when I thought to myself, I said, but we kaboyis, this is exactly why we are kaboyis. We don't look ahead in the future. We cannot see past our kaboyi nose.

Thanks Kaboyi for the response.
You are talking about physical issues.
Take for example ZNBC.
Why cant we sensor some of the programs for the sake of kids?
Before we break their minds.
How can we teach sex education to grade 5 in school and about aids??
shua!!??

Panoramic,

I see. When the boss is away and my garden work is done, sometimes I have a chance to sneak in the living room and watch some programs from the boss' satellite dish. I see a disclaimer at the beginning of some programs that read something like this. "This program contains material that may not be suitable for a less mature audience. Viewer discretion is advised"

Or the spread of Aids!
Why is it synonymous with some?
