OP-ED: Institutionalising 12 years a slave-Caroline Mutoko

KCSE

Wanjiku Nganga Morning Caroline, I too had that vernacular experience. In my lower primary I was taught in Kikuyu until class four. But luckily I went to a boarding school where I got a language culture shock. The affluent English speakers, the sheng from eastlands and us who couldn’t speak even Kiswahili well and the little we did had a mother tongue interference ‘shrub’ but after a while I picked and mastered English very well n when I speak nowadays nobody believes I stepped a foot in a rural village school. There is a big damage in teaching in vernacular…

OP-ED: How is Justice our shield and defender when the voice of the voiceless is ignored?

oped_small

I love our national anthem. Its words are so deep that I am always left to wonder if we really know what it means. We say, Justice be our shield and defender? It is not close to that. Money and power is our biggest defender. If you lack it, forget it! But this must change! This is just one of the verses, and you will agree with me, that we don’t live to the words of our national anthem. And if it is not acted upon by our leaders, then emphasizing on it becomes fruitless. Nothing can change the fact…

VIEW FROM THE DIASPORA: Open letter to President Kenyatta

Titledeeds

By VINCENT NJENGA in DALLAS, TX via DAILY NATION First of all, I would like to congratulate President Uhuru Kenyatta for recently initiating the process of issuing land titles to the homeless Kenyans who desperately need a place to call home. (READ: 3 million title deeds to be issued to land owners: Uhuru) This is a very significant step towards the long journey of resolving the land issues in Republic of Kenya. However, during a recent visit back home, I was amazed by the level of corruption, illegal cartels, fraudulent activities and inefficiency in land related matters. As we all know,…

A letter to my Kenyan brothers in the Diaspora

oped_small

Dear Kenyan brother, it is with great love that I write to you, trusting and believing you are fine. First, I thank God for the opportunity to talk to you using this piece of writing. I don’t think we have met before, but I have seen you in one way or the other. Maybe in the street, at the market, metro, internet, name them all. Every time I see you, I see my mother land, Kenya, in disguise. Do you know, that, you could be the only Kenyan someone will ever interact with in their life? What do I mean? I mean you…

OP-ED: Will Raila take advantage of Lupita to cleanse ODM ‘Men in Black’ genie?

Men-in-black

By MIGUNA MIGUNA ODM is in turmoil. PR deflections and cheap propaganda gimmicks can no longer conceal its terminal structural and genetical defects. The once promising political organisation isn’t able to organise internal party elections and nomination exercises. Persistent, whimsical and arbitrary imposition of deadwoods, cronies and relatives could ground ODM to a complete halt. It has reached a cul-de-sac. The euphoria that once propelled Raila and his outfit to mythical adulation by millions of people has run its course. The goodwill of the glorious people of Kenya has been extinguished through betrayal, exploitation and a lackadaisical attitude. People are…

OP-ED: My Kenyan dream

Oped

The future is bright. Brighter than we imagine. And, I have a dream; That come 2030, a just Kenya that not only listens but attends to the cries of the voiceless will come to birth,if not sooner. I have a dream, that ‪Kenyans‬ will stop suffering in silence and settling for impossibilities. I have a dream, that the Kenyans in the diaspora will have more praises,blessings and not curses for their country; because the nation will take care of its citizens, and they will be proud flag bearers. I have a dream, that government officials will not be blinded by…

OP-ED: Helpful infor for those looking for houses in the DFW area

oped_small

For years the DFW real estate market stagnated. Values dipped slightly throught the mid 2000’s and then took held stable during the recession when the rest of the country saw values drop over 100% (east to west coast). As more companies, and people migrate to Texas, the market has come under severe pressure and the demand has outstripped supply over the last 36 months. It is a great time to be a seller in this markert, but on the flip side, buyers are stuck in a market where there is no room for indecision, and there are no deals to…

OP-ED: Difference between Lupita Nyongo and other priviledged Nairobi kids

oped_small

Lupita and Oscar. Let me tell you what I like about Lupita Nyong’o. I have hung around many privileged kids. The sort of people Dagitari Kigogoine calls “Children of rich” who live in “Nairobi of up”. A number are truly amazing, industrious guys among them. On the other hand, many spend their lives leveraging their parents’ or families’ social and political capital. They make the most out of their surnames. They go about the place asking anyone and everyone, ” Do you know who I am? My mom/ dad is…….” You know them, the spoilt brats with formidable entoutrages, hogging all the…

COMMENTARY: Open letter to HELB from the Diaspora

oped_small

Allow me to take this sporadic opportunity to thank you for your past and ongoing deeds to the common good of Kenyan students. Were it not for your systematized liberality, many of us could not have made it beyond high schools. Your loans program enabled and continues to enable students from financially wobbly families pursue their higher education goals. That is a noble cause you are undertaking. May God bless you. Unequivocally, I would like to express my gratitude on two echelons; Loan; The financial assistance you to afforded me enabled me (speaking on behalf of many others) to complete my Bachelor Degree without missing a semester for lack…

OP-ED: Something is amiss with the disappearance of former deputy adviser to President Uhuru

oped_small

Mr. Albert Muriuki, the former deputy adviser of President Uhuru Kenyatta, bid the mother bye the day he disappeared. Certainly, he was in danger at the time and probably he knew he was to be killed, according to the kind of communication he made to the mother. He knew the direct line of President Uhuru Kenyatta, and he must also have had the direct lines to Mr. Gichangi, Mr. Muhoro Ndegwa and that of Mr. David Kimaiyo. Why did he choose to communicate  to the mother instead of  contacting his boss or the other three dignitaries?. If he had time…
