National anthem made me lose my dream job

Most job seekers goes an extra mile preparing hard and smart when invited for job interviews forgetting to rehearse on National Anthem.

There are common interview questions found online that interviewees goes through not forgetting doing background search of the organisation.

Last week I was invited for an interview for one of the prestigious IT consultant company in the city.

I was too excited being sure that I will be working for my dream company and at the same time drooling about the big salary that comes with the job.

On the due day I walked into the interview room despising other interviewees because of the experience I had and enough preparation I had done.

The interview went on well, until one of the panelist asked me to sing the national anthem. I sung our beautiful national anthem with a lot of courage.

Interview session gone wrong

When the lines were displayed on the projector, it rang into my mind that some lines on the National Anthem I had replaced them with my own words.

That’s how my dream job was costed. Here are the three stanzas of the National Anthem:

National Anthem

Ee Mungu nguvu yetu
Kenya National Anthem
Ilete baraka kwetu
Haki iwe ngao na mlinzi
Natukae na undugu
Amani na uhuru
Raha tupate na ustawi

Amkeni ndugu zetu
Tufanye sote bidii
Nasi tujitoe kwa nguvu
Nchi yetu ya Kenya
Tuwe tayari kuilinda

Natujenge taifa letu
Ee, ndio wajibu wetu
Kenya istahili heshima
Tuungane mikono
Pamoja kazini
Kila siku tuwe na shukrani

Most Kenyans last sang the National Anthem back in high school, at the moment it is only a few percentage that can sing the anthem perfectly.

I urge Kenyans to always sing this beautiful song as a sign of patriotism to our country.


  1. Unquestionably imagine that which you said. Your favorite reason seemed
    to be on the web the easiest thing to take note
    of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while other folks consider issues
    that they just don’t understand about. You managed to hit the
    nail upon the highest and also defined out the entire thing
    with no need side-effects , other folks can take
    a signal. Will probably be again to get more. Thanks

  2. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and
    was wondering what all is required to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very web smart so I’m not 100% certain. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.
