To Have A DNA or Not?

One dubious mistake most men make is to under estimate a woman’s capacity for deceit. Others suffer from deep-rooted insecurities. They would rather hurt comfortably in lies rather than bearing the free weight of the truth. Such calibers of men tie their worthiness to a woman’s approval, and are but half-men, simps. Getting a DNA…

Flume

To the man who believeth that men are naturally promiscuous and the woman who sells herself to the highest bidder shalt never feel safe in any relationship. This is because of them not being able to discover the power of reason. They are both slaves to their emotions. Belief in the faculty of logic has…

Nairobi’s Traffic

Nairobi traffic jam is too slow today. But that is the least of Neville’s worries. His work contract elapses in a month and a half. He is behind on schedule on his car payments. Three days ago the bank sent him an email. Again: “How would he survive?” Neville revs up his Subaru. Traffic is…

My Hands Are Full.

Being born an African, one does not know peace. When you are born an African American you only need to fight one major bigotry – racism. When you are born an African you fight the world. Every prejudice you can conjure, I suffer. I cannot fight for you, my hands are full. We share a…

Out Of Love – 2

Remember the story I covered sometimes back last year known as Out-of-Love? About a certain lady whom I know as *Agrippina*? Her message came abruptly, not that I was expecting it. Not at all. She was the last thing to cross my mind. She sent it at 0230 hours. Normally I do not answer calls…

Politics, God, and Bread

Religion and poverty always have a strong connection. Apart from Africa, even in Europe and America, the result is pretty much the same. My case is that the poor man needs religion. I condemn the effortless tumult of nihilism which confounds piety with ignorance among the less privileged. Bread is a constant factor in a…

Quarantine – Day 14

Day 14, Things do not sound that bad here so far – not like in some other places I know that they are fighting to scoop for points in the highly anticipated cup of Curfew Cohesion Ke, in the news. But there have been cases. Heck there have been cases since the 12th of March….

A Short Kenyan Story

So, why is the average Kenyan not alarmed despite the government’s decree of self-isolating? Well, the burgher class would say Kenyans are stupid for not following the isolation policy. Ever thought of it from the eyes of the common mwananchi? When was the last time they cared about anything that the government said? At times…

From Nanyuki With Love

A few weeks ago, in this new decade, I never thought I’d find myself in the northern hemisphere part of Kenya. It is too early to say that I was looking forward to going for the said so trip. It was a family affair. Which meant I would be exchanging pleasantries with long lost relatives…

Thomas

He goes by the name Thomas, or rather Tom as most guys know him. He has barely passed the silver jubilee mark. Tom lives with his siblings in the Kariobangi South area. He dons those Rayban shades which we Nairobians normally buy from the street vendors in an attempt to shade ourselves from the sun…
