I Am My Own Man!!

  Pressure. That’s the word ringing in my mind. Confusion…and confusion. Am not sure what falling in love means anymore. But I am, it’s loving someone, right? Man-woman, woman-man, right? Men in my age live like they come from a different planet. Or at least the women in their lives make them. Well, we make […]

Woe Unto Kenya

The appalling citizenship many Kenyans own, if our country was human, she would be crying everyday over people who pretend to love her yet they keep breaking her heart all the time. Why can’t Kenyans treat their country like they treat their loved ones? Family goes beyond blood when we are living within the same […]

WHERE ARE THE MEN!

The world circles in squares Men with visions impaired Social misfits, who rift Love hearts into bits Lift up their egos Boasting to be cheats Falling for false things Beasts swimming in rotten deeds Evil bids covered neat God we all need Where are the men who purpose Who take offence in the tag bad […]

Trust me there are so many people […]

Being the first-born in my family, I have witnessed movies unfolding right in front of my eyes whenever my folks disagreed. I have no […]

Leaving The Past Behind

Dad and I had a long talk last week. Not that he gave my brother and I a chance to air our views and feelings, but we were there anyway. He talked so much about where we are from as a family, the struggles he’s been through to raise us up, and the trouble he […]

Who Must We Look Up To?

The Kenya Certificate of Primary Education exam results were released earlier this week by the Education Minister,Prof. Sam Ongeri. What caught my interest most is the realization that parents, students, teachers and supervisors colluded to cheat exams. The situation is very unfortunate. Pupils have defined queer ways of stealing answers, to the extent of copying them on bathroom […]
