Kenya in 2017

Kenyans wake up early in the morning to make a decent living. However, there are those who will want to steal the little or much that they have. Today, on my way to work, our matatu was stopped by a traffic policeman. I wondered, ‘What have we done now?’ A day when there was no traffic to town and I was so happy that I will be at work on time. 5 minutes, 10 minutes…. No sign of anything. The driver was making calls; the conductor was nowhere to be seen. We became restless and enquired from the driver, what was happening? He claimed that the matatu was operating without a conductor. Wow! What an excuse! The policeman just sat quietly at the front seat. We asked him but he shrugged in reply, too busy to answer us because he was on his phone. This made us angrier...

The bus drove off with everyone on board ecstatic for the day ahead. On arrival at Longonot, we were given sticks. The ranger advised us that the sticks would come in handy as the hike progressed.

Favour is not fair

I came back to town at 6pm and entered the Tuskys Beba Beba Supermarket to buy some milk for next day breakfast. It only took me a few minutes to pick my Golden Brown KCC and walked hastily to the till with the shortest queue. With the heavy rains in Nairobi, you want to get out of town as early as possible. When I was about to get to the till, a slender lady came and blocked the way! She was going through some items on the shelves. "Excuse me," I humbly asked her but to no response. She just stood there! I tapped he...
