REWRITING OUR KENYAN STORY

We have consumed a lot as a country, mostly choosing to skew negative about where we are, 50 years after independence. The obvious elephant in the house is the cases in ICC which to a great extent over shadow our Kenyan enthusiasm. Naturally it has never been pleasant being on the international map for all...

WAR-TORN NORTHERN KENYA

We all tired of the conflict in former Norther Eastern province precisely Wajir and Mandera Counties which seems to be the epicenter of two major rival communities, Garreh and Degodia .Since January this year, at least 70 people have been killed and many displaced due to this clashes, but wait a minute; It is not...

PERSPECTIVE ON SYRIA

On August 21st this year, chemical weapons were at play in Syria in what security pundits term as 'sarin nerve gas'. At least 1,400 people died many of them children, quite unfortunate.

DEMYSTIFYING VAT BILL 2013

For starters government sources of income among others are taxes levied on incomes from individuals and corporations, revenue from government owned corporations, capital receipts from external loans, debts from international financial institutions, fines and penalties.

MICROWAVE GENERATION

Welcome to a generation that shows resentment for patience, it is no longer a virtue, call them the microwave people. Young girls being the most affected want to get 'rich' as quickly as possible.

RICH LEGACY FROM MUTULA

To many Mutula was compassionate, humble, humorous, disciplined, hardworking, diligent and a shrewd time keeper but to some he was arrogant, flamboyant, witty, impatient who made his fortunes during the KANU era.  Mutula was revered in legal circles since he was an accomplished and decorated member of the envied senior counsel, a successful politician by...

SAME MONKEYS DIFFERENT FORESTS

Am sure we are all outraged and aggravated by MPs who ostensibly purport to have been oblivious of salary cuts by Salaries and Remuneration Commission led by Serem.To me this is height of aloofness and insult to Kenyans. For starters, the Serem team is a constitutionally formed commission which can only be disbanded through a... Continue Reading →

ARE YOU SAFE?

Woo unto you if you live in Nairobi, the good days when you could cross from one street to another without being bothered by who is following you are gone. Despite occasional grenade blasts ceasing, this has been replaced by organised crimes  which have some political connections. What perturbs me more is how our security... Continue Reading →

THE UNSPOKEN; DEMEANED WOMEN

Having lost my dad very many years ago, my siblings and I were left under the care of my mother, a peasant farmer which was not a bed of roses so to speak. So am in a perfect position to appreciate how important women are in our lives. The notion that women are lesser beings... Continue Reading →

WHEN A MAN CRIES!

Only recently Deputy President-elect one William Ruto was overcame with emotions at a thanks giving church service.He termed the favour of God in ensuring a Jubilee coalition win not withstanding the many odds against them, made him overwhelmed. In fact he insisted his mother could attest that the last time he cried, he was a... Continue Reading →

Welcome to social media equivalent to a typical market where people trade their wares on a willing buyer willing seller basis.Ironically you can hardly spot any council askari (Kibunja and company). What this means is that naturally freedom will be abused, the paradox to me is how 'tweeps' 'love' hating as compared to appreciating. Social... Continue Reading →
