    There are times in life when things just don't seem like they are working out for you, times when everything you touch "seems" to go wrong. I say "seems" in quotes because even though things look like they are going terribly wrong, it doesn't always translate to negative results. The thing is, as human beings we want so much to get results as soon as we want them that patience has become a... [Read More]

    God is amazing on so many levels. For instance, how He came up with the whole idea of the “Life Cycle” is just pure genius. Right from the process of conception, which for human beings he must have said to Himself, “I’ll make this process enjoyable and addictive for them to want to keep doing it over and over again”, to the incubation period (where ideally the baby stays in the womb for 9 months...

    So it’s the rainy season again, at least in Dar Es Salaam anyway, and with the rainy season comes all manner of mixed emotions. Some love the rain especially when it rains at night because it somehow soothes them to sleep, while others (like me) dislike it when it rains at night because it terrifies me. I had a bad experience once where thugs broke into our house at night while it was raining, so... [Read More]

    If people who lived and died over a century ago were to resurrect today, am sure they’d suffer some major culture shock regardless of which part of the world they were in when the exited from it in the first place. One of the things that would shock them most is the realization that people no longer talk to each other but to gadgets. Of course I know most of you reading this might disagree with... [Read More]

    2014 is finally here with us and if you can read this, it means you and I have been given another chance, another opportunity and definitely another privilege to see the new year. So, without further ado, may I take this opportunity to deliver my New Year greetings to you all, and to wish you the very best of what this year has to offer. Like the gifts unwrapped or unboxed on Boxing Day, consider... [Read More]

    Once again it is that time of the year we all look forward to having a mandatory break from all the happenings of the year. For those coming from the slopes of Kilimanjaro, they are probably working on ensuring their vehicles are in top shape because as is customary to them, they have to go home for what many jokingly call “the annual census”. The amount of “mbege” that is being brewed right now... [Read More]

    The other day I met someone who surprised me by his way of thinking. He is married to a housewife but it seems he wants her to get a job. So every time he sees me, the one question he keeps asking me is whether I have managed to get a job for his wife. The funniest thing is, I don’t even know the wife, I don’t know what kind of a job she would be interested in and whether she even wants a job in... [Read More]

    If you missed the recently concluded Tigo Mama Africa Circus that was held in Dar, then you have no idea what you missed. The sponsors did a good job of promoting the event but I guess many people ignored it thinking they’ve outgrown such events. I'll be honest and admit that I too had chosen to take the "ignore-route" until a friend visiting from Nairobi tweeted a photo of some "impossible"... [Read More]

    Today has been quite a frustrating day for me. Enough times I came close to screaming; literally! But I was in the wrong place all the time. You see, I live in Dar es salaam, a city known to have temperatures of up to 35 deg Celsius sometimes. Then the infamous TANESCO decides to cut power at midnight, when I was just about to go to sleep!!! How does one sleep in that heat? Anyway, I managed to... [Read More]
