Ibisigo Nyabami- Rwamakaza-IYO BARUSHIJE AMAHANGA

IYO BARUSHIJE AMAHANGA = LORSQU’ILS DEPASSENT LES AUTRES
NATIONS

Ce poème de la catégorie « Impakanizi”, composé après l’annexion du Gisaka, a le grand mérite de récapituler les grands événements de tous les règnes historiques jusqu’à son contemporain Rwogera. Il omet uniquement, mais malheureusement, les trois premiers en commençant par Mibambwe I. L’année 1850 est la date probable de la composition de ce poème qui est le dernier connu des poètes de la famille de Muhabura, l’unique représentant avec ses trois enfants, de tout le clan des Ababanda.


Iyo barushije amahanga umutungo mwiza
Batekane n’iyeze,
Abami b’iminuka-nguge
Kwa Mayonga mu Rwububira-ntobyi,
005 Shyunga rya nka ibambura abakamyi

Ryanyuza i Kibango gutabara i Rongi.
Mbabwire Maboko atabakika.
Umva Mugabe udaheranwa,
Wa Muhuruzi wa Nyirabaheshi
010 Agaba yibuka guhimura.

Umva Ruhima rwararutse i Buhima
Rushyama kuguha Shyanga,
Ntigisiba umurishyo.

015 Bamurikira Abami ibihumbi bitabarika,

Abami ba Mukera-zina bajya i Byarantaka
