About Mary Ambi

Mary is a political scientist graduate, with a keenness for spoken word for it gives her the next set of words and a passion for the written word!

Mwangwi waliopigana babu zetu ili usipate kuwarudia wao na vizazi vyao leo,
Wewe ulohifadhi mwako moyoni sauti za kilio na maombolezi;
