DIVING

I’m looking at my laptop's background image. It’s a guy swimming in the deep blue sea. It’s a good thing the sea is blue, it’s my favourite colour and it makes me happy. I don’t know if the guy in the picture is happy, he’s looking away, wearing those flippers on his feet, those that... Continue Reading →

HELLO THERE OLD MONEY

I had a presentation at a hospitality firm yesterday. Those posh places that you only see as you pass by to run your errands. Those places you never think about going into, just passing by.   I woke up at 4:30 a.m to prepare for it. Which was funny seeing that there were four of... Continue Reading →

WHO’S YOUR DADDY?

It’s a strange question that. Who is your daddy? A straight forward question for some, and memories of a porno for others. Statistics are less than impressed with the question however, with six out of every ten Kenyan women likely to be single parents by the time they are 45.   The same statistics, and...

SECESSION. MY OPINION

With murmurs of a secession attempt gaining attention, Kenyans might soon have a decision to make, if a certain petition is successful.
