Lonely Woman

I watch you! Walk in the city streets With faces green, black and red Are we the citizens our freedom fighters bred? For whom they lost their precious lives in dirty bloodshed!   I watch you! Sleep in tendrest pretence Passing by beggars in your suits Your stomach fed Wearing scorching smiles But your heart’s […]

Sins from Kenya’s Social Media

  When the 2008 post election violence broke out in Kenya, many people struggled to come to terms with the effects that came with it, to an extent, even refused to admit that that was Kenya. Indeed, it was the last thing in our minds. Africa knows us for the peace we uphold even though […]

That Politician Is My Father!

I am seated in the lounge after a sumptuous supper, watching the evening bulletin. The news anchor utters a familiar name belonging to a man I see very regularly. In a few, the camera rolls showing where the latter is talking to a mass of people, selling himself to them about how he has been […]

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 […]

Peeling Back Miguna

  Kenya is an interesting country. There’s always something burning. If it’s not smoke from a burning car that has just collided with another, it is our athletes achieving rip-roaring success in the international arena, or better still, a scandal in the government. It’s funny what campus students have resorted to in their quest to […]

Kenya’s Political Sins

The Bible tells me that we are all sinners and that nobody is perfect. If ever we are going to get to heaven it will not be by our works but by God’s grace. But sometimes I tend to think some sins are bigger than others. Take the case of an incident that occurred last […]

The Kenyan Revolution

‘Haki yetu!’ the Kenyan slogan for ‘our rights’ has lately been receiving mouth time from angry Kenyan workers. And no, they weren’t swallowing these words, but expressing their heartfelt complaints to the sick Kenyan government which has absurdly maintained a silent carpet play at their never ending demands. Trust me there are so many people […]

Miss Deputy Chief Justice Misjudged?

Miss Rebecca Kerubo spoke with a lot of sorrow, her eyes welled with tears. Perhaps bewildered by all the attention she was suddenly receiving from enthusiastic journalists who wanted her account of the Village Market gun saga that has rocked her young life in the line of duty. It is evident, she never knew who […]

A Question Of Patriotism

Elections are a burden to most African countries. What happened in Kinshasa earlier this week of armed men attacking a convoy of jeeps carrying ballot papers and burning them was utter disgrace. The opposition leader, Mr. Etienne Tshisekedi, was blocked from casting his vote at his place of choice, therefore forcing him to vote at […]

Sinai Fire Tragedy, And The Lives We Lost.

    Nairobi, Kenya. Barely three days had passed since a ferry sunk with the lives of close to two hundred people in Zanzibar. East Africa was still in shock. The last time people that number died in one incident was back in August, 1997, when the Co-operative Bank along Haile Sellasie Avenue was bombed. […]
