MIMI NI PWEZA MAMBO YANGU HUTOYAWEZA

This fun and brightly colored kanga comes from Nida Textiles in Dar es Salaam. I bought it here in Moshi to use as a table cloth for my daughter’s birthday party. I think I am seeing more and more brightly colored kangas around, especially in the shops – so hopefully only a matter of time before we see a little more spunk on here on the streets of Moshi. The saying on this one is also spirited! Not sure it is the best translation, but it rhymes and expresses a lot of confidence.
