Wakonta Mapunda; a Talented but Paralysed Screenwriter who needs your help

All of us are born lucky with God’s grace but along the way shortcomings arise and most of us curse the day these shortcomings arose. Yesterday along the lane’s journey across social media, I was touched by a soul who really is a KIPEPEO. Wakonta Mapunda a young girl, 24 years of age, who is a quadriplegic meaning she is paralysed from shoulders to toe, has spent four entire lives on a wheel chair, living by the grace of our Lord, and the help from various donations of people. Wakonta thought she was going to live a simple quiet life of success, everyone’s dream. However, one joyous afternoon on her graduation day, a day just before her final exams at Korogwe Senior Secondary School, she was hit by a car which resulted into paralysis though she underwent the knife, her state was stabilised but not for her limbs.


Wakonta required years of special training to regain her normal state. It is now four years since this tragic incident happened but nothing has changed. But for all this tragedy, God’s name shall forever be glorified, Wakonta with the use of her tongue and mouth wrote a short screenplay and managed to submit it to Maisha Film Lab. She was selected to join the lab which will be held in Zanzibar. All she requires is a little amount for her costs during the period she is in Zanzibar. We managed to save a life in butterfly; Bernadette Msigwa, why can’t we just help donate the little you have to Wakonta Mapunda, and atleast help this kipepeo too, who believes this is a new start in her career in life?
