Fatuma’s Voice

    #FatumasVoice is a figurative gesture for a platform whereby young people meet to talk about the evils happening in the society and how they could solve them, their hopes for the future, their life experiences as well as networking hence expanding their social circles. We do this through poetry, live music, motivational talks, […]

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 […]

Threatening The Chief Justice: Coward’s Rod

  Watching the Chief Justice, Willy Mutunga, narrating how some unscrupulous people mailed him death threats if he and his contingent at the Judiciary fail to clear Uhuru Kenyatta and William Ruto to appear in the March 4th General Election ballot papers gave me a careworn face. To imagine that there are Kenyans out there […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Kenyan Child

I come from a world Driven by prejudice Where tribes build bridges Peace shred into pieces My only malice Was to be a Kenyan child And there they made me blind Only pain that reigns me inside Tell me to hope again What about the tears my mama cried? Times that broke our ties The […]
