They Don’t Really Care About Us.

Garissa. I’d always planned on doing a post about this, figuring I’d wait for the dust to settle, victims laid to rest, fear subsiding and grief taking on a more reflective perspective.  But as with all the tragedies that occur up in the north, in that region we consider not Kenya (not Nairobi), Garissa faded […]

I’m (not) with stupid.

The thing with blogging, it’s all about habit.  You get used to rambling incoherently, all day any day, often with no greater purpose than to get that ka-kick of satisfaction when you see your words on a page, and maybe a ka -like or nice comment below it.  It’s part addiction, part compulsive behaviour.  And then […]

Idiot Press: Oh Daily Nation, why?

It has finally dawned upon me that Nation Media Group has officially lost the plot. Yes, officially. How else can you explain their current fascination with a girl whose sole claim to fame is a big ass, and now her yellow yellow skin procured in London, allegedly?  Or their obsession with elections that are three […]

So-ve-reign: Part 2

I’ve come to expect a certain amount of foolishness from government communications types, that’s what they’re paid to do. So when one Munyori Buku goes off on a rant about ‘economic sabotage’, I don’t lose any sleep over it, because I understand where he’s coming from. That’s a lie, I do not understand how a […]
