What Does Kenya Mean To You? : #IAmKenyan

  Looks like a scene from a horror movie, but this is what shall become of our country the more we keep waiting for five solid years to do what we imagine is change by going through what we call General Elections, while in real sense it is more doom we bring upon ourselves because […]

I Am Poem

Do not be mistaken This is not a poem I am the poem The reflection of a battle on fire The wings flying against the wind The eagle hungry for bait Because these words search for the living dead I am the unbelievable story you are yet to hear Do not be cheated by my […]

Dark Edge

Your luscious lips scare me They smear me with lies Sweet melodies of tempting hisses To your music like a drunk snake I want to dance But the sound is new to me Why is the sky gloomy? I am your piece of bread Which you twist in your tongue And I lay with powerless […]

I Am Not My Tribe

  I am a Luo by birth. If you ask me which tribe I’d rather be, I’d slap you! Today, if I introduced my girlfriend to my mother, the first thing she would ask me is her tribe, not even how we met. Where do people get the idea that Luos are proud, Kikuyus are […]

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 […]

To imagine that there are Kenyans out there […]

Kenya, My Mother Tongue

  Was independence the end of political fights? Democracy languishes in her infancy You lie enslaved by tribal illiteracy Rotten plights Yearning to kill in the street For people who care about you not one bit Woe unto you who walks with a soul unlit Your poverty is the advantage of the elite   How […]

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 […]

Love Can Be Foolish, But It Shouldn’t Be Stupid!!

The heart sparkles with emotions  that very time you’ve found someone new. It’s like a whirlwind that hits  you! You want that feeling to stay infinite. It tastes special, fragrant  and unique. It gets into you the more you spend time with them. We all  love it. Oh! Even the aged. It respects them not. […]
