It must be a mother's worst nightmare. A father might be proud. His breed doing wonders in similar lands to his origin. Encourage or be the man behind the strategy. Who am I kidding? Very few fathers would do this in Kenya. They would be all up in defence blaming the mother for "womanning" their … Continue reading The Thrill of The Chase

I generally hate hospitals, there is an air about them that makes me feel sick. I would die if I was to study medicine and become the traditional coveted doctor. It was after much persuasion that I agreed to visit our school's health unit. I was dragged there... "Are you pregnant?" The … Continue reading Am I Becoming Anorexic?
I am seated in a City Hoppa on my way to town. It's 12 minutes to 6:00 pm. The conductor to this particular bus is very enthusiastic. Amechangamka.

That is the level of awesome it was at. I am not one of those mushy persons to … Continue reading When Did You Cry Last?
We are 5 days into December already!! This month will end before we fully realise it is with us. A lot is happening for me today. First, I'm celebrating a full year since I set up this blog.

There are various categories of disability ranging from physical to mental. It is World's Disability Day. Fewer people know this and few of that number are acknowledging it. It goes without saying that those facing these challenges are among the marginalized groups in Kenya.
