Makungu is my name, named by my daddy. I was the only child or can say the first child in my village to be named Makungu, I now know other few Makungu in my village. My name is unique and I would like to say that I am unique too. Makungu is a beautiful name and it has a meaning and the meaning means something to me. Growing up there is this song that I used to sing and I loved it so much though I the message that time it did not get to me, but because in the song there was my name that made me to love it even more.
Now that I have grown I understand the song and I no longer love the song but I am in love with the song. The song goes like “Xikwembu xina Makungu, xivona tiko rilova nta rhuma mani misaveni.Tatana rhuma mina niyava fela misaveni”this means that God has a plan, seeing his country falling apart, whom should I send to the world to save them. Father, father send me and I will go and die for their sins.
Makungu means plans, decisions, and I believe that God has a plan with my life, God has made decisions about my life of which I may not know at the moment, but because I trust and believe in him, I know where he is taking me. I may not be where I want to be right now and I may not know where he is taking me therefore I trust that he is busy paving my way at the moment.
I also believe that I was planned to be in this world and in order for me to take good decisions. Xikwembu xina Makungu hi mina, Lord I love my name and I wouldn’t have asked for a better name from my dad, because this is the best name. God has a plan with me.Every time someone asks my name, they find it difficult to pronouns it, ‘come again’ therefore I say it slowly so that they can be able to say it. I also tell them what it means because they always ask. My name is Makungu. I am decisions, and I plan.
