January 2008. The atmosphere was thick with dread. It had come to this; war with our brothers. Endless queues and inked fingers in polling stations for what? Civil war. The frustration in the country drew much deeper from a long time bottled hatred than the confounding 2007 election. Demons were loose. These people didn’t even know how to handle weapons…More

Dear reader, Today’s blogspot is a guest article from a writer I admire. Mr. Owuor Kuyoh.

Statements fly everyday that say the future is bright. The future is big! The future is for you! However, the critical disclaimer that is never appended to these beautifully crafted words whenever quoted is this; only applicable to those who are disciplined now. All of us men will pay; some for enduring discipline and some for the lack of it. The chief gaping difference…More

Men will be always be required to take care of the fairer sex; women. Even despite the fact that the ladies may drive bigger cars, earn bigger cash, and dress in shinier suits, they are desperate for a Charming who will be courageous for their sake. In fairy tales, the princess in the tower is swoon because of the prince…More

Growing up, the world told me that if I wanted them to know I’m a man, I must raise my voice and be heard above the stereo and television combined at volume 26 and 32 respectively. I had to grow muscles that bulged like the Himalayas such that I couldn’t touch my shoulder if I flexed a bicep. And the flexing was not just…More

I once heard someone ask: If Santa Claus, the Easter bunny, the perfect gentleman and the perfect lady once crossed a busy street, who got to the other side first? The answer is the perfect lady. All the others are figments of your imagination. That humorous conclusion compels us to ask. Are good men really a rare commodity? Is gentleman,…More
