A cry for beloved and 'under siege' boy child

Today’s breed of men is a discriminated lot. In our primary school days, there was a never-ending song by Government which was hastily picked up by NGOs. The chorus of the song was ‘In support of the girl child’ or something close to that.

This was an orchestrated policy directive by the system to deny the boy child his rightful share of the cake. Those of us lucky enough to survive this discrimination,…

Only fools steal a fortune and boast about it online

What would you do if you stole $1.45m (Sh143m) and made a clean getaway? Personally, I would jump on a plane and get some plastic surgery done, change my name and then ‘begin life’. There are three Ugandans who successfully pulled off that feat at Equity Bank Garden City.

Unfortunately, they seem to have been watching too many movies because after the incident they took a home video in which they bragged…

Bullet shortage hits N.Korea's firing squad,criminals to be sent to Kenya as punishment

With rampant cases of execution by shooting as capital punishment in North Korea, the country’s firing squad has eventually run short of bullets.

After scratching their heads and burning the midnight oil in search of a more ‘humane’ substitute, the concerned authorities have finally settled on sending death row inmates to live in Kenya as capital punishment.

#DigitalSpeak: Kenya's war on terror explained using hashtags

There is no more sure evidence that we are living the digital age, than the proliferation of symbols to paraphrase conversation. In the digital age, time is money, attention spans are limited and the daily deluge of information pours in nanoseconds.
