Homage to Inspector Wingo (Mzee Kipara) of “Simu ya Kifo” film

A legend and well know senior artist Fund Said (Mzee Kipara on the first left) died in Dar es salaam yesterday morning after fighting back a long illness. Mzee Fundi Said once worked with Tanzania Railways Corporations (TRC) and Uyui blog started to develop interest in his work through Film Tanzania Magazine (where he played a role of Inspector of Police as Inspector Wingo in Simu ya Kifo or a death call) and Radio Drama at the Radio Tanzania Dar es salaam where he joined the late Hamis Tajiri, Ally Keto, the late Ibrahim Raha (Mzee Jongo), Tunu Mrisho (Mama Hambiliki); Rajab Hatia; Ramadhani Mwanahewa; Majengo; Zena Dilip (Maua or Mama Hadia) where their producers were The late Mzee John Luwanda or Salim Seif Nkamba.

As technology advanced the late Mzee Kipara was not an obsolete artist (despite his age) he joined the television drama shows and has acted a number of film but the most famous one was SIMU YA KIFO ( A death call) where he promoted Tabora. In the Simu ya Kifo Mzee Kipara acted as Mzee Jacob.

Simu ya Kifo film originated from a book by Faraj Katalambula of Igalula Tabora where the late Hammie Rajab developed a scrip and later a film whose executive Director is Doroth Kipeja. Mzee Kipara also played another thriller film KOLELO again directed by the late Hammie Rajab and filmed by Sylone Malalo.
Definately he will be remembered and missed.

    I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
