  1. Not me, but a lot of public service positions are filled with incompetents due to ethnicity. It is the reason KE remains in a rut.The most competent humans of Kenya can never get the most influential (of policy) positions!

  2. Yet...yet, I am a denier! A self confessed COVIDIOT! At least in the African context of the pandemic. I really like to interrogate every subject , view, outlook because I don't like to take it like I am an unthinking idiot while everyone else is not.

    Yet…yet, I am a denier! A self confessed COVIDIOT! At least in the African context of the pandemic. I really like to interrogate every subject , view, outlook because I don’t like to take it like I am an unthinking idiot while everyone else is not. My experience with the dodgy adoption of preventive measures in my neighborhood taught me to question popular beliefs ABOUT COVID.

  3. OMG...then it's over. The rate at which brains are being fried is scary, I can't see a good end at all. It is tragic beyond description.

  4. I get puzzled. There are so many needy people I know who are always reading the Bible from sun up to sun down. Some severely disabled... physically or otherwise challenged. Yet, their circumstances remain the same! That is where I question a god who seems to be partial, answering some people but ignRead more

    I get puzzled. There are so many needy people I know who are always reading the Bible from sun up to sun down. Some severely disabled… physically or otherwise challenged. Yet, their circumstances remain the same! That is where I question a god who seems to be partial, answering some people but ignoring others. Then to shut us up we are told some gibberish like ‘God works in mysterious ways’ which we repeat through generations until the truth is hidden or just buried under semantics!
    My take: no one needs religion to be a good person!!

    I love your post! Unfortunately most Africans (being African I avoid to discuss other than Africa) totally refuse…(because no one stops them)…or are incapable of removing themselves from themselves and analysing stuff from their own perspective. I blame our education and socialization and culture whRead more

    I love your post! Unfortunately most Africans (being African I avoid to discuss other than Africa) totally refuse…(because no one stops them)…or are incapable of removing themselves from themselves and analysing stuff from their own perspective. I blame our education and socialization and culture where you are supposed to just fit in and shut up! Only those who refuse to conform are ever curious enough to stop and think and demystify stuff… religion, culture, popular norms. Biggest culprit our schooling system which by default doesn’t allow people to leave the beaten path. I am where I am appalled, terrified that nothing will ever change to save us from ourselves.

  6. Woweez! Profound!! I wish I could collect such profound proclamations from local people, I am sure they exist. But clearly they have been overtaken by the swiftly changing times. First off...local languages are threatened by urbanisation and exclusion from the curriculum. Wonder how it helps seeingRead more

    I wish I could collect such profound proclamations from local people, I am sure they exist. But clearly they have been overtaken by the swiftly changing times. First off…local languages are threatened by urbanisation and exclusion from the curriculum. Wonder how it helps seeing as ethnicity still reigns supreme in KE, if they were scrapped to make us feel as one.

  7. Oh...are the streets silent? I have no idea. All I know is there is no national conscience, at least not from half of those who voted. How is it possible for people to keep doing the same thing over and over and expecting change? The mathogothanios will continue, 60 years and counting. And the belovRead more

How is it possible for people to keep doing the same thing over and over and expecting change? The mathogothanios will continue, 60 years and counting. And the beloved country will continue performing below par…and everyone will feel it! That’s the punchline.

  8. Wananchi to quit ethnicity and think as one. Then, and only then will the pretenders to the throne realize what a force united citizens can be. But there are those who consider other citizens as outsiders, and they the annointed ones. Well, we shall wallow together in need and want and lack of serviRead more

But there are those who consider other citizens as outsiders, and they the annointed ones. Well, we shall wallow together in need and want and lack of services for the next 5y before they repeat their dirty act.

    I love people who do not swallow everything hook, line and sinker and take time to think it over and analyse! Well done you! Absolutely beats me, this is how this goes: one is born and within 5 minutes you have a name, a culture, a religion, etc conferred…no choice! About 18 years of schooling laterRead more

    About 18 years of schooling later you have developed into a nearly wholly formed adult, with freedom of choice…yet you choose to believe everything, specifically religion, that your ancestors tell you. It is as if you yourself cannot form an independent thinking culture where you at least seek answers and understanding about things religion! Lack of curiosity means no invention happens at all, only giving rise to conformity…as if one relegates all ability to think, absorb, analyse, poke holes in theories…to ancestors/others.
    Weird!
    And sad.
    Why the laziness of mind? Guess I will be a fossilized ancestor before I get an answer to that!!!
