THE DEGREE SYNDROME

The anger over kids not getting into university speaks to how Kenya education has become a search for papers, rather than true learning which opens many doors at many different levels. Shouldn't we perhaps interrogate our all-roads-lead-to-university model of schooling? - Gathara - Media personality We are such a ridiculous nation that seemingly panics and vomits...

THE EGOCENTRIC MAN

Society respects confident men. Actually, it has a soft spot for them. They can get away with anything including beautiful ladies who get you thinking; Is she dating that guy, how so?  They manoeuvre dowry negotiations with some sort of ease. They always know what to say and how to say it.  They win second chances during interviews and... Continue Reading →

DEAR STUDENTS, PLEASE CUT THE SLACK

About a 100 students have been charged in court for arson related cases in the last one month. Moreover, close to a 100 high schools have been closed down following the unfurling unrest among students. The unwavering strikes have had pundits citing reasons to do with extension of 2nd term, mind you, for just one... Continue Reading →

A MEETING OF SORTS: MR. X & I

On this afternoon, I get a text from a close friend reading that there is this gentleman, whom we shall name Mr. X, in dire need to meet me to have an important conversation. I immediately call my good friend to dig dipper. She doesn't disclose as much, only alluding that Mr. X has some great... Continue Reading →

HOW WILL YOUR EULOGY READ?

I have always wondered how my eulogy will read. Isn't that suicidal though? Shouldn't I book an appointment with Madam Grace the lean bodied, tall woman, with crops of grey hair who on this day will be donning one of those flowery dresses worn on a sunny wedding day which will seem to flatter her...

MY LUNCH ‘LOCAL’

During my life in college I belonged and still do belong to a squad by the name Cattle Dip. In fact our Whatsapp group has been in existence since this social media platform taxied safely in our lives and became part of us. The close to 10 of us were using all manner of tricks...

WHO WILL MENTOR THE MEN IN US?

  When my Research lecturer gave us an assignment on writing a proposal, my mind juggled with so many topics for some days. Ultimately, my Proposal heading read; A STUDY ON THE PLIGHT OF THE BOY CHILD IN KENYA. It is no coincidence that I'm passionate about the male gender threats and prospects in this country....

WEDDING COMMITTEES & THE CHARACTERS

The other day a female friend sent me a text message reading that I had been invited to a wedding committee. Actually, she was not really a friend but one of those people who possess your number by mistake. You know, there are those people who shouldn't have your number, but they have it anyway...

MISS RECEPTIONIST

Last Saturday I checked in at a doctor's place for a random check up. I met an empty front office, well laid out, neat and inviting. I rested on the couch convinced that the receptionist would show up in a matter of minutes. She could be in the ladies, I thought so. Well, I waited... Continue Reading →

MAMA’S BOY SYNDROME

Mama's Boy has always been a hot-potato-topic loved and loathed in equal measure, one that is too sensitive for many writers to juggle with, that pierces through what we hold dearest to, compelling us to be on either side of the divide. You are either a mama's boy or not. It is as clear as... Continue Reading →

‘LOVE’ – YOUNG VS OLD

Less than two weeks ago, Nanyuki woke up to very sad news of a 64 year old killed by her supposedly boyfriend who is only 22, crudely in what was alleged as a ploy to take advantage of her wealth. Well, a 42 year gap is what it is and no man can convince me... Continue Reading →

GYM INSTRUCTORS, WOMEN CLIENTELE & MAN’S AGONY

I never understand why men married to housewives never see the sense in appreciating that they are virtually, employers! Satisfying a housewife is damn expensive, a tall order that needs a very patient, rational man and the icing on the cake - a standing ovation. A considerable percentage of their monthly budget will be labelled; Her. Placed... Continue Reading →

UGANDA AND THE NOISY PALS

My friends abducted Kageshi and I, lobbed us into this moving car and before we knew, we were in the middle of nowhere. Speeding in a picturesque road akin to what you watch in the movies that have these beautiful yellow petals littered on it. A clear highway with no meanders or speed bumps or kids...

FORGET SOCIALITES;MEET TROPHY LADIES

To some extent I so much envy ladies when it comes to their innovative ways of making extra income. Come to think of how a career as a socialite became acceptable and admirable by legions of ladies. How this career has unashamedly crawled up our knees to pose as a flourishing million dollar industry, right... Continue Reading →

FEMALE BARTENDERS

The holidays might be done and dusted but you are still stuck in the neck of woods taking stock of a season that literally milked you dry. At least from 21st December, it was a rolling stone; you on a drinking spree from lazy afternoons to cock-crow hours, the next morning. The only songs playing... Continue Reading →

THANK YOU READERS

On 30th December 2015 as routine, I received an email from WordPress (my blog's domain) highlighting on my last year's performance. They cracked statistics on my posts viewership, the popular sites used to access my blog and countries where the viewers were based at that time.  I was exceptionally excited for the reason that I...
