I have been in a cell before. The walls are tall. The concrete is cold and so is the ambience. The public vehicle I was in together with 13 other passengers had no seat belts. We were all arrested, handcuffed and thrown into a gloomy and drab cell in the basement of the Nairobi City Kilimani law courts. For the…More

When I say that the world is full of wicked people, what comes to your thoughts? I’m sure your mind is reeling with images of thieves, rapists, murderers and people behind bars (whichever bar comes to mind first). When the term wicked is used, you probably think of the real-life example of Darth Vader, Loki, The Joker of Gotham City…More

One of the ways in which you can kill an inquisitive conversation is by saying, “God told me.” It’s a tactic that hardly fails. A friend of mine got into a questionable relationship that led them down a terrible path. One of my pals and I decided to confront them about it. We were their friends and we weren’t too pleased that…More

Have you ever felt so angry at someone that the words that came from your mouth were equivalent to Hiroshima and Nagasaki to the soul? Or have you been so depressed that, though you have never voiced it, you contemplated suicide? Have you been so excited before that your thrill and joy caused you to act totally out of character?…More

Dear reader, In 2012 I made a radical decision to get married young from an impression I received from the Lord. Today’s blog has something to do with that. Today’s blogpost is by a friend to my wife and I. Her name is Esther (AKA Ess). The three of us served in the Student government at USIU in the years…More

In 2003, I did something foolish. A girl I didn’t know signed my autograph book in primary school and I lashed out at her. Apart from the verbal damage I caused, I drove the nail deeper when I ripped out the page she signed before her very own eyes. I had a very strong choleric nature and in the discomfort…More

This weekend, I was faced with the hard decision of bribing a police officer or paying a hefty fine that would require surgical removal of my kidneys for auction. I seem to have a high affinity towards police officers. Last year, I missed my Spanish DELE exam because the matatu I was in was stopped by traffic officers. I was…More

Before I met Waturi, I had kissed a girl. I was 18 and sexy, looking for an equally sexy girl to complete this package. I had a knack for getting bad girls but not this time. This time she was right for me. We met through mutual friends. She was a believer and so was I. What else mattered? She…More

There are times in our lives when we need to move into new territories and abandon old ones. These are times when we have to let go of the status quo and venture into new waters. It’s not easy. In fact, it’s scary; it’s uncomfortable and it’s threatening. However, when the cost of staying where you are outweighs the cost of…More

Men of faith are not always faithful men. And the vice versa is also true. A man of faith has great trust in the person of Jesus. He believes without wavering doubt that what God said will come to pass. A faithful man is one who delivers/ acts on what he believes. There are faithful men but faithful for the…More
