Let Us Not Forget The 80s, 90s & Early 2000s.

The air they breathed was contaminated with sadness and death. The environment was littered with desperation and confusion. And the sky? Well it was was pregnant with disease and it poured down on them fear. Word had spread like wildfire. A mystery murrain was here, and it was not only terrifying but also terminal! Some…

Men Must Talk.

It was a Glenlivet 15 that Joe (not his real name) liked to have when he felt the way he was feeling today. He had concluded that it was the only drink that understood him, met his needs and provided him a shoulder to cry on. Not that he cried though, because men don’t cry.…

You Know What, Fuck It!

He said my blog was down, that it bores him when he has to come here looking for beautiful new stories then he has to bear the disappointment of finding none. He emphasised that consistency is very important if I am to make my blog a success. He continued to say that when people come…

Choose Your Country!

We agreed in my previous post that the 1st time people organised themselves so that they had a leader, they formed a government. From the African plains to Europe’s highlands, the dry East and the tropical South West, the purpose of government was to organise people and protect their interests by making laws and policies. All over the world,…

To understand the government is to understand what ails it. It is to allow ourselves to be able to treat this sickness and make it functional again. A good government equals a good life for it’s people. Many people have put across their definitions of the word government. Google defines it as ‘the group of people…

Of Myself & Ignorance.

Very old men say “..the youth are the future of this country.” Sometimes even the youth say and believe that they are the future of this nation, Kenya. That statement means that the youth are expected to fill the gaps that will be left by old outgoing folk. They (the youth), will at some point…

Where Does Allegiance Lie?

I saw a post by a friend of mine that had me thinking more than I should have. The post went like: …Growing up means realising a lot of your friends aren’t really your friends… It then had hashtags like #fakepeople, #bereal, #selflove and more that I don’t remember. I don’t know why, but I thought about…

My Idea Of Leadership.

6016 4000 Oliver Kagwe

To be in a position of leadership is to be in between a rock and a hard place. It is making choices, be they good or bad, and accepting to own the blame and be crucified when things go wrong. Being in a position of leadership is accepting that not everyone agrees with you, even…

Money, Religion & Health #1

If you are among those people who say that money is not equal to happiness, please move on to my other posts because I am just about to seriously offend you. I got myself into a hot discussion with my friend, Kamau, who I find it important to point out that has been married for…

Celebrate Yourself, You Are Amazing!

18th July 2018 was like no ordinary day in my life. It was different in all its aspects. Just last week, I finally joined the 20s band wagon after what seemed to be an eternity in my teenage years. For once in my 20 years of life on earth, I felt the need to celebrate.…
