I have always been of the opinion that those who keep reminding us to always choose happiness do not know what they are talking about. That you cannot ‘choose to be happy no matter what’ because that’s not how life works. When you wake up one morning to a text of your girlfriend breaking up […]

Guilty. . .Just Like The Rest

Ciku wondered how Jack could be that obsessed with violence. How it was even possible for him to throw his head back and smile as the echoes of wailing men and women turned into ghosts by bullet-spitting guns bounced off walls in the streets. Jack’s fascination with action movies had gone beyond that of a […]

Blind Love?

The day seemed brighter. Did the sun have Morning Glory for breakfast? Curious, the village went about its business with prying eyes, and that’s when we saw her. She was light skinned. Her short hair rested on her head like a crown. Her shy smile gracefully curved through her chubby cheeks. Her bosom made her […]

If I Were a Girl

Because we were having this conversation about sponsors and I was banging on and on about the need to date for the right reasons, this friend of mine, blessed with delicate eyes, hips curvy like a liar’s tale, leaned back against her chair, adjusted her black shades and said, “As a woman, I am presented […]

14 Things I Have Learned From Publishing A Book

Writing a book is like announcing you are getting married. People congratulate you and say they are happy for you, but deep down they hope this information won’t cost them money. So they treat you with suspicion. They make excuses as to why they can’t answer your calls or reply to your messages and they […]

Police Case

I saw an Avocado tree back in the village sagging with ripe avocados. It was standing next to the river, this avocado tree. Okay, it’s not like it has since moved to Roysambu, so allow me to correct that sentence and say it stands next to the river. After I walked past it, I remembered […]

Kano Koze

The thieves in Dagoretti Corner were bold. So bold that they would stop you during the day, rob you, and then walk away counting their loot as you counted your loss. They were mostly young men who dropped out of school to venture into thievery, or who robbed people to keep themselves busy during the […]

May The Grave Close

My sister Vella, second born of the family, decided she can’t withstand the invisible fire stinging her feet anymore and died. Her death silenced us at first. Everyone held their mouth and chest and looked at the other because it was the kind of death we had all seen coming. It had been knocking on […]

I Dreamt About Her

I dreamt about this particular Ex of mine the other night. I have no idea why, because I hadn’t spent my day thinking about her, or her down to earth shortness, which made me tower above her each time I stood or walked next to her. I hadn’t sat in a corner either, fantasizing about […]

Bedroom Bully?

It was a rainy night in heaven. God, spread on His majestic bed, stared at the ceiling, wondering how else to punish Adam. He at first thought ousting him and Eve from heaven was punishment enough, but He yearned for something more. Something that will send an even clearer message to the man and woman […]
