I am Back!

Well, this blog may not have been updated and you may have been wondering where I went to.
See, from my last post, I have been very busy.
First I had to go convince my tribe why we should not vote for that guy from a "certain tribe". Even if that guy is better than the other one from the "other tribe" , their tribe is worse of than our tribe. See they occupy the same job that our tribe would have occupied, farm on the same fields that our tribe should farm on and eat the same food that our tribe should be eating.
That was an easy task given that most people from my tribe are lazier than those from the other tribe, and i had given them an easy tribe to solve their problems on. See, in Africa we solve problems using tribes, after all, they wouldnt be there if it wasnt for the other tribe.
My next task was now to instigate violence against the "other tribe". this task was even made easier by the "victory funds" from the big man. See, even the Bible says in Proverbs 19:4 that wealth maketh many friends; but the poor is separated from his nieghbour. You might even have seen people from my tribe uprooting the railway line on CNN. I managed to convince them that that metal path was a leading cause of Malaria and HIV/AIDS. Infact, cases of HIV/AIDS infections reduced that night due to a security crackdown, thus proving the railway line was infact a major cause of HIV/AIDS.People from my tribe became very angry when they saw our big man drinking tea and shaking hands with his enemy. "We fought for him, yet he goes and drinks tea with our enemy", they asked. What they didn't notice is that the cost of tea been drank was equivalent to what they earned in a week.
After the "Post election violence", i was busy fighting again for our tribe. We had to be represented in the 40 member cabinet of National Unity. From what I had heard, it was better to have 42 robbers from all communities in a grand robbery than have 24 robbers. 42 robbers would ensure that each community was fairly robbed.
Since then, rice prices at my nearby Supermarket doubled while oil prices now require calculators with more digits to calculate. This meant that we had to look for "the big man", but he couldn't be found.
Apparently, he had joined some other big people and they were now conducting a popularity poll on who was fit to speak before who. The media called it a protocol dispute or something. The poll was being conducted in several IDP camps.
I am typing this as i wait for the official results to be published.

I am back to my blog since I am a bitter man, after discovering that "my tribe" and "the big man" were very different things leading me nowhere.

I will be back, shortly

Beers in Kenya: A sober opinion

Note: This is a dated post and has since been mostly passed by events. SAB Miller beers including Castle and Peroni are no longer widely available in Kenya after their exist. Sirville Brewery was bought out by Brew Bistro before being permanently shut in a tax dispute. Kenya is a land of milk, honey, beaches and taxes. I have penned, or is typed, a newer post here

I have had a short beer swigging stint in my life. It has however been long enough for me to share my opinion of Kenyan beer. Interestingly, over the course of sharing such opinions with other drunkards connoisseurs,  I have found that we all have different views as to what beer is the best, which one makes you too drunk, or which one gives one free, extra hangover for every hangover you get from it.
For starters, like everyone else, I discovered that beer isn’t as sweet as it looks like in those adverts that show golden barley swaying in breezes, happy men smiling and toasting chilled, foaming glasses of beer as a deep voi…

Why do people vote for Cruel Leaders?

Why do Kenyans, or any other electorate for that matter, vote for cruel politicians or so-called leaders?
The common argument is that the voters are ignorant, or were “misled” or had “no option”. But this is not true.

People know who and what they are voting for. People intentionally vote for cruel politicians especially when the voters form part of a majority - clan, tribe, race, nation, class or other majority.
It is not that they do not know the politicians are cruel. They simply assume that the cruelty will be experienced by others - the minority - and will never be experienced by them. They deal with the conscience by arguing that those experiencing cruelty must have done something wrong to deserve it.

The bitter story of the downfall of Mumias Sugar company

Have you heard the bitter story of Mumias Sugar?

Regarded by many as Kenya's most successful sugar miller, Mumias Sugar Company was a disaster waiting to happen.

Many pointed out how Mumias Sugar Company was a fortress in the wreck that is Kenya's sugar industry, only unaware that it was just a matter of time. As the old wise men said, "Ukiona cha mwenzako cha nyolewa, tia chako maji".

The proverb means that if you see your neighbour's head getting shaved, your head will soon be undergoing the same - you'd therefore better wet your head for a smoother shave, otherwise you will be forced to undergo a painful, dry, shave.

But what ails Kenya's sugar industry?

The Kenya sugar industry is under legal siege. The typical Kenyan issue of coming up with laws to tackle a problem is evident here.

Many of Kenya's sugar factories are owned by the government, and have slowly declined under mismanagement and corruption. The appointing of political cronies and trib…

The Bible. Why you should read your Bible.

After reading what The Candid Tin man had to say about the Bible on his blog, I felt a disappointed man. In my opinion, the candid Tin man had committed the same errors of omission and commission that have plagued the Bible for centuries.

In the beginning, the Roman Catholic church was the dominant church worldwide, and the bible existed in Latin language which common folk like me and you did not understand. Latin was a dead language used by the priests of the roman Catholic church and perhaps a few scholars.

The Roman Catholic church aimed at controlling the public's opinion , as the church still does today, and especially their opinion of what was God's word. Therefore, back then, if you needed to understand God's word, you had to consult the Roman Catholic Priests to read the Bible for youa nd then tell you what it said. How well they did this and their intentions remained questionable, with accusations directed at the Roman Catholic Church for mistranslating The Bible…

The Idle Life of a Regular Kenyatta University Student.

My education life was quite an active one, till I completed the 8.4. part of 8.4.4. I went to good primary schools, with tuition in class 6-8 and boarding in class 7 & 8. My life in primary was quite full, esp with tuition in class 7 & 8.I passed KCPE and was admitted to a good National School in Nairobi. My High School life was divided into 3 months holiday and 9 months schooling per year, except for 4th form where i spend I had a 1 month holiday between January and November. I was therefore well occupied for the first 12 years of my education.

After sitting for my Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education(KCSE) in November 2004, I had to wait for results till March 2005. I was well above the B+ university cut off. Previously in early 2004, we had chosen universities and courses we would like to attend by filling the Joint Admissions Board forms. After the results were out in early 2005, we had to wait till August 2005 for the 2004 KCSE lot to change their university and cours…
