The Future of Work Post Covid-19

As of 2019, the unemployment rate in Kenya stood at 9.31%. With the current Covid- 19 pandemic, this number is definitely expected to hit unprecedented levels as employers downsize and put in place pay cuts to keep companies afloat. My heart goes out to recent graduates who are looking to enter the workforce at a […]

Starting Over.

Whenever I have laundry to fold, I always find myself looking for other things to do. I wouldn’t even mind selecting beans, looking outside, watch a YouTube video on how to boil water, just anything else. I only remove them from the chair after they start getting creased and looking ghostly in the middle of […]

Grim Reaper

The following morning, he sent me one of the songs we had been listening to when getting drunk the previous night. ” Whenever I listen to this song from today onwards, it’s always going to remind me of last night’s good memories. ” It read in text. And I didn’t know if to be happy […]

‘Affirmation can’t flow from outwards. Rivers are meant to flow from the inside. ‘ I heard someone say this, mid this week and I didn’t think much about it until today as I scrolled through Twitter. It’s shocking the lengths people would go to seek affirmation. We have become consumed and lost in translation when […]

The gas gauge shows less than a quarter of a tank. This is something I would have barely noticed a year ago. Now, I notice and remember the price of everything- milk, a loaf of bread, everything. The sound of tyres against gravel as I pull up at the almost empty parking lot excites me. […]

SORRY MAMA

He feels feisty then he is tired again. It has become a routine. Fear.  Tired body.  Rush thoughts that won’t cease. Sadness. He can’t remember where the rain started beating.

Hello 21,

I am the kind of person to read the last chapter of a book first. The journey to the end for me is worthwhile if only I know where the road will lead. How will the characters end up? How are the choices they have made and people they have encountered contribute to their end […]

WRITER’S BLOCK

 Picture this : you make plans with someone you like to meet up for coffee say Tuesday evening. They actually give you their last word that they will show up. In your mind you even choose what you will wear then, because well, appearances and impressions! Tuesday. 1 PM. You’re there having lunch all excited […]
