Dear World,

I wake up from deep thoughts, then followed my lots of questions.


When I first heard about COVID-19, it didn’t really make sense to me until I started to hear about thousands of deaths each day worldwide. Still, I had hope.

It could probably be prevented before it gets to Africa. I was wrong. It’s now in Tanzania. By the time I’m writing this story, the 28th of April 2020, we have around 480 COVID-19 cases and around 16 deaths confirmed. It is very scary because the number keeps going high, day after day.

This pandemic has effected many people financially. We are no more getting jobs. A freelance filmmaker for more than 10 years in the industry, that’s the only source of my income, keeping my 8 year old son, neice and nephews, younger brothers, mother, and my wife Mary.

My wife is nine months pregnant. Anytime soon, we will have a new baby born.

She’s a very good makeup artist, but she stopped working a couple of months ago because of the corona pandemic.

I feel like the world has changed its motion. It’s now running at 100 frames per second. Life is slow here.

Yesterday, I was looking at my wife’s baby bump and it just felt like the baby was telling me, “See you soon, daddy.”

I wake up from deep thoughts, then followed my lots of questions.

The COVID-19 pandemic.

Hospital situtation.


How and what will I feed the baby and the mother?

I’m almost going to finish up my old savings and I don’t see the light of new beginning.

The image kept playing in my mind.

“See you soon, daddy.” 


See You Soon
