RAT IN THE BOX

There is a little rat that hovers my box,a tiny creature that almost always follows men to wherever they go.It is my hope that rats will follow us to hell too,after puncturing a few of my clothes and damaging my food wares on earth,it is only fare that we share a place in the everlasting…

KITALE…

The quiet small town,a metropolis of people from all walks of life.Not so many people,even the folks from my country know of this haven that sleeps quietly on the ranges and slopes that stretch out to kiss the foot of Mt.Elgon.It has made news sometimes albeit  being bad news,it is still news nevertheless.Remember the crazy…

ALL THAT I AM I OWE IT TO MY MOTHER.

Dusk fell quickly on that dark act,as we slowly walked back to the flat in that expectant darkness we couldn’t help but digress over the macabreness of that scene.We talked casually about it as though it was a movie but maybe it was the vodka that we had taken a few moments after the scene…

“TELL NO LIES,CLAIM NO EASY VICTORIES.”…..Amilcar Cabral

What would the world be if every being who walks on its surface was truthful?How would things be if the word lie did not exist in the English or any dictionary for that matter?It would be a paradise don’t you think?I am not talking in my capacity as a truthful man.I have told my fair…

QUEST FOR NATIONHOOD

Ancient Bukusu Warrior. My President Mr.Uhuru Kenyatta once stood on a podium addressing citizens and said something that i rather didn’t agree with.In his address he said something close to what I am about to quote,”Hii nchi sote tunajua ni wakikuyu na wakalenjin ndio waliipigania sivyo.”That is Swahili to mean that the only people we…

CLEVER BLACK FOOL…..

Its been a while since i watched a movie.Part of the reason is due to increased responsibility both at a professional and personal level.I have been doing some research on how the sub-conscious mind works.Apparently this part of our brain never rests,its always at a constant working state.Its alleged by scientists that when you watch…

YOU…….

You,yes you,you uninformed slayer,you,yes you,you unaware murderer,you psychopath,you bully,clad in your jungle green and heavy dark boots,yes you with a club at hand,you with a gun hanging  loosely close to your waist,does your mother know he  raised a bully?
