Nduguzanguni, Mambo ndivio hivi sasa.

My fellow Kenyans, please allow me to take stock of recent events and please as Kenyans rightfully judge concerted efforts and the sheer lunacy and absurdity determined by our leaders.

In 1850`s the first Arab/Swahili trade caravan made it`s way into Kalenjin land, well said Moi University neighbourho...

I've seen what rage can do to a country and specialy to its people. Bad, bad move. Nature has power enough to cause problems (like the fires in wildlife preserved areas), don't add human's rage.

Yaani we've live for more than a hundred years like one people of a Family called KENYA and a tribe called KENYANS. Let us build our nation without worshiping our leaders and later they mislead us. Let us live knowing that '' its better to lose pride becoz of the ones you LOVE than to lose the ones you love becoz of PRIDE.

Kenya: Home of My Soul.

i think on recent events,
all that has happened to the place once called
the home of my soul,
and despair.

the long years have brought on homesickness
and a nearly desperate need to return,
even more so now,
when my heart is crying out
for those perishing in abominable fashion.

i watch the censured scenes o...

Remember at the beginning...
When we were young, when we understood words like 'Harambee';
When we sang songs about 'tuungane pamoja';
When we were proud to be Kenyan;

When we celebrated Kipchoge, Rono the athletes (not the tribe);
When we spoke of the freedom fighters with pride;
When we laughed at each others different accents from around...

i have no tribe
because i was born to a kikuyu father and a meru mother
was brought up among the luo
i schooled in kamba land
i dont speak kikuyu nor kimeru but flow in dholuo
can converse in kikamba
i resemble a luhya
i am a kenyan

my fellow kenyans why do we want to destroy our beautiful and prosperous country? haven't we lived together for over 44 years? take a look at the Jamhuri Day video footage of 12th Dec 1963 and ask yourself what happened to all that unity so powerful that it could bind water and oil? people please let us put our differences aside and consider who is...

Dear,i did not forget valentine's day,
but it was just things were tough,
I couldn't get flowers coz the roads were blocked,
and in the flower farms there were no workers,
Many of them were,displaced,maimed,chased,warring and others killed.

Dear i did not forget to send you a card,
but it was just there were no papers,

Forgive me this long comment; I'd like to spin out a tale which I hope may be of use.

I once taught a session of one of my daughter's freshman high school classes about Ancient Greek literature. One point I made was to try and explain why ancient literature (not just Greek stuff) is full of geneology lists: those "begats"-lists of ancestry.

We cannot spit in the faces if our ancestors by rejecting our heritage. However, we must understand and accept that our differences are only linguistic, or compared with other races, only skin deep. Accepting the nature of our diversity and using for common gain rather than to maim is the true spirit of humanity. We need to discuss our differences ...

Tribe is what should make us proud, because it means we are a community rich in culture and traditions. I was born, raised, educated, loved, disciplined in the beautifull country i call my motherland, Kenya. My childhood was full of great memories and all my friends were from all kinds of backgrounds and we are still great friends up till today.
