Me: How are you?
Honorable Uhuru: Am cool? You have received the GOK Unga yet?
Me: Yeah! Its sweeter by the way, hope you didn’t add something…
Honorable Uhuru: What? Who could do that?
Me: You know…
Honorable Uhuru: hehe…hehe! No, we didn’t. its Mexico maize. That’s how it tastes!
Me: Oh, okay! (mockingly…) That’s “cool” then…
Honorable Uhuru: Now what up?
Me:  There is this thing…
Honorable Uhuru: What?
Me: Well, I mean…
Honorable Uhuru: Wait, I still got your vote?
Me: Me: about that, also…
Honorable Uhuru: Honorable Uhuru: (in a sober and serious tone) Wacha mchezo kijana!
Me: Let’s say I wanted to vote you…
Honorable Uhuru: ehe…!
Me: Why would I?
Honorable Uhuru: Log in to delivery! delivery.go.ke!
Me: a…
Honorable Uhuru: You will see what we have done there
Me: That’s funny but anyway. The thing I wanted to talk to you about is this thing about votes
Honorable Uhuru: Don’t worry! We got it.
Me : What do you mean?
Honorable Uhuru: We are winning…
Me: You and who?
Honorable Uhuru: Us! You, me, Ruto…
Me: So you expect my vote automatically?
Honorable Uhuru: Absolutely! You are from my tribe!
Me: Wow! and if not?
Honorable Uhuru: Well, that’s unfortunate! And u…
Me: So, tell me… I applied for a transfer in polling station, only…
Honorable Uhuru: You see… you would not have done it earlier that easily!
Me: I meant to say “only to find myself at the same polling station”
Honorable Uhuru: uuh…! What will you do?
Me: I will not vote!
Honorable Uhuru: What?
Me: You heard right! Am not going to vote!
Honorable Uhuru: Why? You should be a responsible citizen!
Me: Well, perhaps you should try being a citizen too!
Honorable Uhuru: What? As in, what do you mean?
Me: You should try surviving on one mean per day, using all your money for fare and …
Honorable Uhuru: No Kenyan is living like that! I know my people! We are a strong and healthy nation!
Me: You truly are not Kenyan! You defend incompetency, negligence, corruption by rejecting their existence hence hindering justice!
Honorable Uhuru: That’s the work of the justice department!
Me: Under whose authority?
Me: If part of your government fails, you fail too!
Honorable Uhuru: What can I do? I mean, to change your mind about the vote?
Me: Nothing! I have decided not to travel many miles just to vote then return at the same position!
Honorable Uhuru: I can give you fare… 1 million, what do you say?
Me: I say give every Kenyan the right to pride in their own tribe. Make us all equal. Admit failure to fight corruption and make visible strides to fight tribal discrimination! Bridge the gap between the rich and the poor not by building railways but by empowering that poor guy who created a classroom chopper with a motorbike engine.
Honorable Uhuru: So, are you taking the fare?
Me: Let me think…well, no! not that I don’t need it, but…but I would rather not betray Kenya! I must admit, it feels proud to do this!
Honorable Uhuru: Okay, I will make sure I observe your issues next term in office, any more advice?
Me: Of course, yes! Look at the NASA manifesto! It has almost everything!

Purpose To See

Grace_in_Defeat_1024

3 things that are essential in life: something to look up to, something to look forward to, and someone to look at. Contentment is the fuel of a righteous progress. Hope is a reward for commitment, and commitment is the journey of consistency. Purpose to see, feel, hear and enjoy the despair and the beauty of your world along your way. Instruct your speech and guide your lips with kindness. Be keen to understand, quick to learn, able to remember; Be delicate to interpret and ready to speak.

— [Kabue Charles (McKabue)]

Hungry And Angry

So, I went home, hungry as hell;

I started to prepare to cook;

I prepared… I prepared… then I put it on fire;

I waited… I waited… I waited… then I checked;

I waited again… and waited, and waited, then I checked again;

The stupid seeds are still as hard as beginning!

I put it down, washed some rice and put it on fire;

I waited… I waited… I waited… then rice was ready;

Then I listened to my stomach;

I added water to the seeds, and put it back on fire;

I waited… I waited, then I checked;

I extinguished the fire and went so sleep, hungry and angry;

Love is the desire to do good for others
