Don't listen to politicians, Kenyans love Ugandan sugar

I almost quit my job in April for personal reasons.

What happened is that I was playing truant in my village when I remembered that the daughter of my mother’s sister works in Pukasi (Bookers or Mumias Sugar Company to you).

What made me lick my fingers ravenously was a piece of intelligence related to the fact that my cousin owns a cooking pot and is extremely versed in the technologies of turning smoked fish into…

Woman clobbered for eating chicken meant for hubby

A 32-year-old woman in Matungu, Kakamega County learnt the hard way that sinking her teeth into a juicy gizzard, drumstick or back of a chicken is taboo among locals after her beastly husband gave her a thorough beating and dragged her before a village headman who fined her.

The woman found herself between the hammer and the anvil after her 36-year-old husband, only identified as Okutoyi, reigned terror upon her for eating chicken parts traditionally preserved…

Youths raid, pelt politician's home with vegetables and fruits over unemployment

There’s never a dull moment in Uganda, especially now that we have the elections around the corner. There is drama left right and centre.

Former Uganda Prime Minister Amama Mbabazi, must be regretting the day he ditched ruling party National Resistance Movement (NRM) and declared his bid for the presidency in 2016.

In what seems to be proof that nobody gets away with challenging President Museveni, market vendors (or were they goons?), believed to be hired…

Drama as priest mourns and refuses to preside over funeral

Men of God are known to be merciful, compassionate and sources of hope to the downtrodden and unfortunate.

Stop using ‘periods' as excuse to deny men 'nooky', pastor preaches

A pastor shocked and tickled parishioners in Nairobi when he, in the middle of his sermon, addressed female churchgoers, telling them to stop using menstruation, commonly referred to as ‘periods’ as an excuse to deny men their conjugal rights.

Pastor Wilson Mwangi, who presides over New Apostolic Brotherhood Church in Kayole area, lit the church when he said he had had two cases in which men from the church reported their wives of refusing to engage…

Poor reading culture: Why aren't we building libraries?

There is an old expression. “If you want to hide something from an African, hide it in a book”. The insulting stereotype aside, books do not pull rank in the average Kenyan home. Our poor reading culture is something to worry about. If only we spent some of the time we waste gossiping on social media, discussing politics and watching English English Premier League in libraries, we would be doing much better.

The British Institute in Eastern…

The day I bribed a cop with a cigarette

The few friends I have always ask me some odd questions, and when I answer them, they get surprised — just as the Chief Justice did a few days back when he discovered that the traffic policing system was a setback to the judicial system.

Are you married? No. Why? Because... Do you go to church? Yes. Really? Apparently...Do you cook? Very well. Oh? I do not even let women to cook in my house. Have…

Types of men who make the worst boyfriends, husbands

Women tend to be very patient creatures. We have all the time and tolerance to wait for bad boys to turn into good guys. We give time to childish men to grow up. Perhaps this is because of the motherly caring instinct in us? I don’t know. The unfortunate bit about it is that this quality always haunts us.

We love to believe that we can turn a frog into a prince. And that if we…

Busted: Cook poses as teacher, cons her way into man's heart, wallet

“Ngai! Socs please usinichomee picha,” Connie pleaded and ducked away from the staffroom window. I moved over to see the reason for her panic. Connie is a member of Meta Meta’s support staff and had brought tea.

Schola swears she is Okonkwo’s niece. She was employed when others were being retrenched. At the parking, a smartly dressed middle aged man was getting out of a Toyota Voxy. I was on duty for the week. Unlike last…

How to vet a woman for ‘wife material' qualities

The population of men to women in this country was once touted to be 1:3. This, therefore, means that for every one man, there are three women jostling and angling to catch his eye.

Unfortunately, young women who are seeking husbands do not know that how they behave while at their men’s rural homes is vetting of sorts.

There are things women do that make men outrightly write them off. Look, woman, you are not ‘wife…
