CIRCUMCISION: CULTURE, CHURCH & GANGS

Photo credit: Pinterest Circumcision is one of the most revered cultural practices in my community. It is a mark of transformation and liberation, if you may. Liberation from childhood manners and anything that demeans boyish attributes. The physical mark that is painfully entrenched to the young man is a gate-pass to the lawns of adulthood....

MILLENNIAL ZONE 016: TRYST

They had numerously stumbled on each other, with the Dean of Students always imploring on her of their date especially after the incredible idea of the school mag. Speaking of which, the mag had become so popular that the Vice Chancellor of Matiba University requested for an audience with the brains behind it. Sly was... Continue Reading →

CHURCH ETHOS

Church ethics have evolved over the years and so have our guts. Religious leaders have been met flat-footed by the world advancements in technology and other fronts. The leadership has found itself in the wobbly and ugly underbelly of the synthetic headways. It’s not a secret that many men and women of the cloth have... Continue Reading →

WHAT’S IN A BEARD!

“The male beard communicates a heroic image of independent, sturdy, and resourceful pioneer, ready, willing and able to do manly things,” said psychologist Robert J. Pellegrini November might have been my birthday month but somehow also marked the end of ridicule from a good friend and deskmate whom I will refer as Chris for the... Continue Reading →

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 →

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...

BATTERED MAN, PLEASE MAN UP

That man is under serious s-i-e-g-e and crumbling faster than we thought may seem far fetched, however it is consistently being affirmed by daily scary statistics that bombshells anyone who cares to read between the lines. Is man under a crisis? Yes. If we would measure the anger levels at the family level, it would... 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 →

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 →

AND SHE REACHED FOR A CIGAR!

Nairobi CBD has five designated smoking zones which typically are not women friendly. (Hahaha sounds funny). Yes smoking rarely pays homage to gender or financial muscles. Not even to that slim lady in dripping dreadlocks in the heart of Majengo Slums to the swanky and sophisticated corporate woman who chairs boardroom meetings where her gender... Continue Reading →
