After weighing this issue in my heart for a very long time now, I have seen it appropriate to speak out. I have to admit that being Luo is a trying responsibility. Being son/daughter of Ramogi is a trying if not a difficult task.

I don’t claim any expertise in this field, neither can I claim to be the spokesman of my community. As an authentic son of the soil, a man who...

When I met her, I felt like the luckiest man on earth. I was living in a dingy 2-roomed house somewhere in Kahawa. When she came into my life, my fortunes changed because of the energy she came with.

It was a daily occurrence like the dew on the grass. Our stomachs had been forced into...

A small fracture can ruin a leg.

A small defect can sink a ship.

A small crack can break a metal.

... and a small character problem can ruin a man. We often think that disasters are made up of random isolated acts that usually invade like an armed bandit. We sometimes see people who have fallen, failed or made terrible mistakes as just a coincidence. My friend, let me break the news to you, nothing is...

A majority of us are predictable. In our speech, what we do, how we walk, talk and even how we think. Well, predictability can be a good attribute because it projects an image of stability. Yet being predictable can be counter productive.

Lend me your ears, fellow earthlings. If you are predictable, it means that you will do the same things the same way and yet miraculously pray for a different result. When you...

Marriage is no joke. I’ve always known that but never in my life has this message sank deeper and taken root in my heart, mind, soul and spirit like it has now. I have seen couples who were the envy of many people break up in spectacular fashion.
