HOW TOXIC CAN THE ABUSED BE? (Part 2)

Let’s continue with Kananu episodes. Isn’t it a struggle to write this! Sometimes when we lack identity and security we specialize in our areas of expertise to give us a boost and a name in different kinds of relationships we engage in. We become servants in all the spaces we show up on, to our … Read more

IN THE MEMORY OF MY FATHER 

But who can adorn a red pair of long trouser, throw in some whites, a dash of brown and strike a pose with a sportsman cigar if not my father. You checked his shoes? And that cap….I need to enquire. Maybe this is how they tesad those days, they’d say things like “look imeweza” of … Read more

The Marriage Institution Vs The Married Person

I would have wanted to write about this later in life, but what I read from Caroline Kangogo’s death have left me with no option.
