December 2012

Socially Anti-Social?

What happened to this week? One day it was Monday, and the next thing I know Friday was already here with us. It felt like the days in between just disappeared and all the hours were merged into one long day. All the same I am glad we made it through another week, and what a week it has been! Obviously, if you are reading this, then it means the world didn’t end on Friday the 21st like the Mayans had predicted. I guess what this means is that they need a new calendar.

Monkey See, Monkey Do

The testing period is over and now we are just about to start the festive season. In fact I should have said the festive season is here with us because if we are to be honest,  for most of us our minds are already on holiday; the bodies are just there to be counted by the bosses.

Can we Unlearn?

Finally it is December, and the examination marathon in the region finally comes to an end. It started in October for Tanzania Secondary school then later primary schools and finally in Kenya the same happened. Since October, there has been lots of drama with some student giving birth in class and another having no choice but to do the exam in a hospital bed, while under the surveillance of policemen. Well, to all the students out there, I hope you did well in your exams and hopefully when your results come out you will not say they don’t belong to you.

What went wrong where?

I've been listening to Maina Kageni and Mwalimu King'ang'i for a few weeks now since I discovered I could get them online. From the topics they've been discussing on their segment "#MITM - Maina in the Morning", it is clear that relationships and marriages in Kenya are no longer what God wanted them to be... not sure this is a unique scenario to Kenya, but then again, that is not what is up for discussion.

Shortcut to Hell ...

So what really happens when it rains in the region? I say the region because regardless of whether it is Dar es Salaam, or Nairobi or Kampala, the reaction is the same. It baffles me really. Do the roads suddenly become smaller? Or do drivers become dumb? I ask these questions because the things that happen on the road when it rains are unbelievable.

Football: Another one bites the dust

I don’t follow English football as closely as I used to before but that is not to say that I’m in the dark. I still do from a distance. If you are an English football (aka as English Premier League - EPL) fan, then you know that Arsenal has been having a draught season that has prolonged for too many years to even bother counting; and therein lays my reason for not following the EPL as much as I used to during the days of Thierry Henry.
