  • The Africa I knew

    10 June 2016 ( #anti-Misandry, #Feminism, #africa )

    I remember, a time when I was young and innocent of worry. (I hope that statement makes it clear enough that worry can defile you.) I cared about nothing, enjoying each moments as it came. I remember when I had time to admire Mother Nature, and rather...

  • SITAKAA KIMYA

    22 July 2016

    It has been a really long time since I sat down to write, and perhaps it is because usually my motivation is dependent on the very things that trigger my conscience or rile me up enough to get me to put my thought down in pen and paper. This piece is...

  • Standing Alone

    29 July 2016

    Every day comes with new challenges, and when these challenges come before us, it suffices to say that one is limited to three options. One either faces them , flees from them, or does nothing about them. Its safe to say that often, the wise choice is...

  • The Thinker

    01 March 2012

    To some this is just a simple sculpture. However to me it is a symbol of the nature of th e human mind. Indeed we are thinkers by nature. Whether consciously or subconsciously, we anticipate and calculate every move, whether made or not. We also think...

  • Momentum

    26 April 2012

    Its often said that a rolling stone gathers no moss. Interpretation ? well , its obvious, see ,if you keep moving from place to place you cant gain anything. No experience ,no exposure, no permanence no nothing. But its such a pessimistic view to have....

  • The Mandela Complex

    03 January 2014

    Now, most of us know Nelson Mandela as having been an exceptional leader, his outstanding ability to look past enemity and grudges, his constant struggle to bring love and understanding out of conflict and hatred are worth noting .We also know of some...

  • My Dilemma (The Burden of Purity)

    21 January 2014

    Being a law student and bible scholar, finding a balance between examining the definite and remaining politically correct while maintaining the truth may seem a challenge. But as scholars of jurisprudence, we begin to understand the importance, of living...

  • A week for the weak

    29 April 2015 ( #Politics and Religion, #LGBT, #LAW )

    This week has seen so much happen in so little time. Baltimore riots triggered by the aftermath of Freddie Grays arrest and death, my newly launched business facing a court fine and interviews by a new law school and Highest on my list is the Kenyan High...

  • BUMPS AND BRUISES I LIVE I LEARN

    22 June 2015 ( #anti-semiticism, #Politics and Religion )

    "We have no scars to show for happiness, we learn so little from peace". Today I found myself thinking , "bumps and bruises , I fall I wake up , I live I learn." It is not every day that one finds himself thinking this things.Today was indeed a dark day....

  • The Illusion of friendship

    16 November 2015 ( #Philosophy )

    Today marks one of the many days I come across phrases that are so true that they make me wish I thought of them first. Last week s conclusion saw me pass a resolution that I would do what was exclusively in my best interests, with some exceptions of...

  • THE IMPORTANCE OF GROUP WORK IN LAW SCHOOL IN KENYA

    03 December 2015 ( #LAW )

    It has been a long while since I last drafted an article aimed at academics in law school. While In the UK I can hardly remember doing any graded work in groups while at university. This consequently led to the belief that, it was not a necessary or essential...

  • The solution

    01 March 2012

    This being the first article, it wouldn’t be particularly irrelevant if I communicated my intentions. If anyone would ask me why I decided to make this website, they would probably expect a long speech on the convictions and Ideals that led to the creation...

  • The power of knowledge

    06 March 2012

    It’s interesting how we justify our mistakes as human nature. True “man is to error” but that is no excuse for not learning from our mistakes. Now in order to learn, we must ask questions, and being human, we also have a ferocious desire to find answers...

  • "tunaomba serikali" MENTALITY

    06 March 2012

    Now, helping people is a noble aspiration but it is also a very vague one. When it comes to African politics, I bet one out of every two of you have heard a politician someplace saying (we are asking the government) “tunaomba serikali”, a couple of times....

  • The concept of learning v the concept of passing.

    07 May 2012

    My phone rang yesterday afternoon and after a couple of seconds of meaningless chit-chat with a friend, we got to serious business. Besides the jokes we usually share and the hilarious stories she always seems to have, she had a bit more than a juicy...

  • Why and how we read

    18 July 2012

    Smooth jazz playing in the background and a serious urge to JUST WRITE something/ANYTHING , a couple of strangers in the room all looking desperate in their own way , a couple hacking away at their key boards and others staring hopelessly at the computer...

  • Blurred lines

    05 January 2014

    Yeah yeah . . . . I know the song, but this has nothing to do with that. It seems that somehow, we have developed a way to view integrity that in its own way suits us. Every individual even myself, has picked up a definition of living life with integrity...

  • To The Feminists from The Bible. with Love .

    26 January 2014

    If there are two things we can say about our society, It is that we are a society that hates women and children. We build child-free restaurants, abortion centers, resorts and condominiums that are child free. As some often say, “oh those chauvinists...

  • The legend of the phoenix

    04 November 2015

    It has been such a long while before i wrote an article. It wasn't the lack of inspiration, if anything the abundance of ideas coupled with a heavy bout of indecisiveness allowed the blog to enjoy a drought of posts. I had plenty of ideas, considering...

  • Kingdom Abundance

    03 October 2015

    Well Today’s piece,originally had little to do with the title. The essence of this article is in the memory of that phrase(kingdom abundance) considering it acted as a stark reminder of some of the realities and facts of everyday life. Today started on...

  • Overcoming the Hurdles of life

    05 May 2016

    It really is a surprise that the first post of this year (2016) is coming up all the way in May. I cant help but notice that it has probably been five months. I had plenty of articles in the oven but I think this will be the most relevant or well baked...

  • WHEN LYING IS THE RIGHT THING TO DO

    30 May 2016

    When it comes to honesty, most people rank it quite high on their character value scales. Honesty is the best policy, is something so often said, and even more so believed to be true. In all things though, Is honesty ever the right thing to do. Most may...

  • Genius with a touch of madness.

    05 June 2016

    So halfway through the first draft of this post, I pressed the back button online and it just set me back on two hours of very good writing . . . . at least I think it was great writing. Well, here is a second attempt. Yesterday was a bizarre day; I left...

  • FURAHI DAY

    10 February 2017

    Its Friday once again, yes, yes, I know its February and this happens to be the first post of the year. I guess the title will perhaps contradict the content of this post because it definitely is not a Furahi day for me. I just came from court and I am...

  • EVOLUTION OF A LEADER

    22 February 2017

    "Leadership is character," they say. The last few days have been particularly interesting because of the enormous mental stress placed on my brain as a result of the life centered questions that I have been trying to answer. The big questions.............,...
