November

Hey, It has been a while. I know it’s a bit lame if I said I had been thinking about you lately. But I would be lying to myself if I said I did not. Of course I do not want to look absurd by blowing up your phone with endless calls and texts. Nope….

Water-Bender.

“Why are you late this evening?” I have to confess that I was left by the bus. You are probably wondering where the hell I was till the bus left me. A few years back when I was in campus, I used to commute for classes between town and some place called Thogoto. Honestly, I…

#56 – Manman.

Manman, it has been three years since you left. Happy belated 56th birthday if you would still be walking on the face of this earth. You turned a year older in this world two days ago. I do not know of the other one yet. My bad. Your birthday passed and I did not write…

Two Days before Le’fools, Day One, Mzedu, March 30th 2019, Voi – Taveta County There are three men in a car christened Bidii. It is a Toyota Platz to be precise. Inside that car there’s a man in his early sixties – Kraun and his son – Saitama in his early thirties. There’s an ongoing…

Sensei.

When karma decides to play ball games like the way it did with Sensei, it makes sure it enables the most difficult settings. He didn’t go looking for problems. Instead problems found him. He says that when you find your house is leaking, just know that it didn’t begin with a crack. Rather it began…

Death of Tech

They say African restaurants hang pictures of food they can’t cook. Have y’all seen barbershops and salons? Welcome to our mad city where if you point out a certain fault or give positive criticism, you wil be gladly sold a chair that would help you sit out and mind your own business. Then there comes…

Greenlight

We used to order different drinks in the same bars on most Sunday afternoons. We both knew about each other’s different lives but we couldn’t dare to face the damn truth. Well, those great whites had big teeth that bit us when we said that we would always be in love. Unfortunately for us, we…

2 a Week

At the end of last year I began writing a new series. I dubbed it the name 88,000 acres of bad shit. It has two episodes out already. It’s going to run pretty much of the first quarter or rather half before I decide on something else to do. I took writing this new series…

Going Under

12th December 2022. Athi River; Mombasa – Nairobi Highway. 0333hrs. It shouldn’t have happened. But it happened, I lay there in a pool of blood. My body trapped in a mangle of wreckage. My vision became distorted. It was abit hazy, everything in front of me seemed dark and cloudy. Their voices seemed like a…

Sitting Down Here

Perhaps I should go to the confession box and say, “forgive me father, for I haven’t written in the last fourteen days.” Maybe, just maybe, I might go.. but I have the heart of some certain pharisee who went before the Lord in the synagogue and said that he was not a sinner cause he…
