a bruised reed he will not break,
and a faintly burning wick he will not quench (Isaiah 42:3)
A couple days ago I came home from a meeting and was met by an entourage of ‘reporters’
All telling me in unison: “Thayu alivunja TV. Aliigonga na lemon chwa, then pa ikavunjika” (Thayu broke the TV. He hit it with a lemon)
I was into sure how to react so I went into calm mode and got into the house.
Not to be easily deterred the crew of ‘reporters’ followed me and switched on the TV set to show me how much damage had been done and if possible to persuade me to ‘deal’ with Thayu.
I was still not moved.
They went away dejected.
Mission not accomplished.
