Hama Thomas Grant kana kuti Hama Sylvester Grant vaibva vagara kumashure [pakeriya], tonanga kumaruwa uye madhorobha madiki akapoteredza Freetown kunoita kuti vanhu vanyorese mabhuku, sekutaura kwataizviita.”

Kutozosvikira muna 1927, vaparidzi vainyanya kuparidza muFreetown uye munzvimbo dzakapoteredza dziri munharaunda inonzi The Colony. Asi kutanga muna 1928, gore rimwe nerimwe mvura isati yatanga kunaya, ungano yacho yaihaya bhazi yoenda kune mamwe mapurovhinzi. Vaya vaisakwanisa kuenda vaibatsira nemari yenzendo dzacho, dzaitungamirirwa naMelbourne Garber. Mapoka acho aiparidza mumadhorobha nemisha zvaiva kumabvazuva kuKailahun uye kumaodzanyemba pedyo nemuganhu weLiberia. Musi weSvondo wokutanga wemwedzi woga woga, vaidzokera kunoona vanhu vainge varatidza kufarira.

 Panenge panguva iyoyo, Hama Brown vakashanya kuWest Indies ndokudzoka vaine motokari, imwe yemotokari dzokutanga kupinda muSierra Leone.

Vakaramba Vakatsiga Panguva Yairambidzwa Basa

MuHondo Yenyika II masoja aitorwa muSierra Leone kuti varwe hondo yacho, asi vanhu vaJehovha vakaramba vasina divi ravanotsigira sevaKristu. (Mika 4:3; Joh. 18:36) Hurumende yeBritain yakavapomera nhema kuti vaipandukira, saka yakaongorora basa ravo ndokurambidza mabhuku avo. Vanoona nezvokupinzwa kwezvinhu muFreetown vakatora mamwe mabhuku ainge atumirwa ndokuapisa. Dzimwe hama dzakasungwa padzakawanikwa dziine mabhuku ainge arambidzwa asi pasina nguva dzakasunungurwa. *

Zvapupu zvakaramba zvichiparidza pasinei zvapo nokuti basa rainge rarambidzwa. Pauline Cole akatsanangura kuti: “Imwe hama yaishanda mungarava yaigara ichiuya yakaramba  ichitiunzira magazini eNharireyomurindi. Tichikopa mune aya, taitayipa mamwe magazini okushandisa pamisangano. Taigadzirawo mapepa aiva nemisoro yenyaya dzomuBhaibheri toapa vanhu. Uye hama dzakaramba dzichipa hurukuro dzavose uye kuridza hurukuro dzakarekodhwa dzaipiwa naHama Rutherford paredhiyo, kunyanya mumisha yaiva kure.”

Zviri pachena kuti zvaiedza kuitwa izvozvo zvaiva nechikomborero chaJehovha. James Jarrett, uyo ave ari mukuru uye piyona chaiye kwemakore, anoti: “Panguva yehondo yacho, ndaiita basa rokucheka matombo pandakapiwa kabhuku kanonzi Refugees (Vapoteri) neimwe hanzvadzi yainge yakwegura.

Mangwanani akatevera, ndakawana hanzvadzi yacho ndikabva ndatorera mukoma wangu nevanun’una vaviri mabhuku. Tose tiri vana takagamuchira chokwadi.”
