This isn’t a gospel song per se, although one may admit elements of gospel music “intrude” now and then. There’s no denying the merit of this song, which speaks to the soul, holding before the listener the morbid reality of passage: We’re all passengers in transit, and no one knows the hour of exit from the material plane.
“Pumzika Kwa Amani” is a threnody for Gertrude Rwakatare, a Tanzanian Member of Parliament and bishop of the Mikocheni B Assemblies of God. A public figure, she was much loved for her service to her community.
Her legacy is soulfully memorialized by Rose Muhando in “Pumzika Kwa Amani,” a song that strums the depths of the soul. Check it out below.
