My Thought — March 1, 2017

My Thought

God gave us different parts of knowledge and skills. Let’s stop pretending to be saints,too holy or perfect that we ignore technology. When these scientists foretold about drought we ignored and claimed “wanajifanya kuwa Mungu.” Now it came true. People have perished from our ignorance. It’s God who gave them the ability. If we had grabbed this report and utilise it by inputting possible measures such as protecting & constructing water catchments, buying/selling at least half of those livestock and saving the cash as we wait for the rains instead of losing them in the desert,etc.This would have helped minimise loss. It’s the same thing that happens in places such as Pakistan and others. Besides corruption; Ignorance,pride and over “confidence” are what kills most of present humans. Let’s start respecting and acting our different callings.
*Do ur part as a doctor let’s respect your truth
*Do ur part as a climatic forecaster let’s respect your true results.
*Do ur part as a loyal teacher let’s respond to ur loyalty positively.
*As a preacher preach the true gospel…let’s respond to u positively. No church business no doubts.
*As a leader lead well,be just,honest,wise n humble. Let’s submit and respect u.
……and we shall all rejoice
GOD SPEAKS TO US THROUGH MEN

The Kenyan county/city council officers famously known as “kanjo” by many citizens esp. in Nairobi  have of recent days hit news headlines on how they have been mistreating and mishandling Kenyans especially the self-employed traders “hockers.”  Having received most of this reports in our news room, one of spotlight writers decided to pin courage by following up on the behind the scenes of everything and write what’s true to our readers.

I was walking to my place of work when i came across them harassing some two young ladies who sell boiled eggs and smokies along Ronald Ngala street. I didn’t like the thing and decided to move closer. Realizing that they had not been moved by presence i decided to be taking them some photos and videos. Wow!!

I was walking to my place of work when i came across them harassing some two young ladies who sell boiled eggs and smokies along Ronald Ngala street. I didn’t like the thing and decided to move closer. Realizing that they had not been moved by presence i decided to be taking them some photos and videos. Wow!! I tell you i had just reached my target. I just head, “kuja hapa,mbona unatupiga picha?” Within a minute i was in the hands of four guys; three men and a lady. “Leta hiyo simu hapa, silly.” I surrendered my phone to them and asked to let me enter their pick-up in the name of “van” in peace and by myself. Suddenly an idea came to my mind. That’s when I changed my minds and refused to seat at the back but with the guy (mkubwa-as they called him) who had my phone and seated next to the driver.  I stood by my opinion till they decided to have me at the center of the guy and the driver. I knew my phone had no any photo/video of the scene and sitting far from it would give them a chance to use it in taking some photos once they notice my innocence and use them as an exhibit to trap me.

Sitting next to him I asked him why they had arrested me. He said it was because I had been taking them some photos as if I was a photographer for a Kenyan television. I liked the answer, laughed and mocked him thoroughly as I asked him to open my gallery and browse the photos. He found none. I further asked him to refresh the files he was ashamed and disapproved. He got upset and asked the driver to stop the vehicle and called on the colleagues to lock me alongside the other “criminals” behind the van. I didn’t hesitate to remind him that they were not criminals until proven guilty. He looked at me in anger. I then told them that i would only accept to be locked in there on one condition which was being hand-cuffed with one of them with my phone. That was a tough request to them. They realized am a person who doesn’t compromise with my rights. They gave up on me and asked me to go with Christ. I ended up mentioning to them all the evils they have done to Kenyans. Though I left them furious the message had been delivered. Had I not proved my courage they would have handled me me in a quite terrifying manner.

The government should stop harassing innocent hockers and instead provide alternative solutions to their needs by providing job opportunities. Job opportunities are available in plenty but been captured into slavery by Corruption {tribalism and bribery } where even the most fit for the job never win the chances.

Kenyan Leaders’ Change — September 16, 2015

Kenyan Leaders’ Change

If we all emulate our leaders’ new character that they displayed yesterday at Mike Sonko’s dad’s burial,then we can surely head somewhere. No politician spoke politics for the first time as they always do. Kidero and  Sonko himself had a chance to keep off their differences and promoted peace. Generally Sonko’s speech was the best. He accepted to be an upright leader and promised some positive changes.
You made me a proud Kenyan.
Also I should congradulate Hons. Muthama, Wetangula  and Duale for the first time being in agreement to reduce their big salaries to raise money in respond to teachers’ applaud. The teachers nationwide have been on a strike calling for their salary increament now having entered the 3rd week of striking.  We await to see what happens next.

TOUGHEST NIGHT MY HEART NEEDS THE TRUTH — June 27, 2015

TOUGHEST NIGHT MY HEART NEEDS THE TRUTH

Can’t get asleep the whole night. I’ve been listening to Oliver Mthukuzi music as i review my life n my future i saw them as tough. Their claws are wide open ready to attack me…..am thinking on how to fight them….mhmh call them challenges. Am promising myself to battle them even though am sort of afraid of them. Telling myself i won’t allow their claws to scratch me for my life lies in my hands. What’s my destiny? Only God and I will tune the beat,,I swear.

Oliver just told me to WAKE UP n STOP SLEEPING and wasting time.

A voice tells me that my name reflects my life and am not going to lose the battle I’ll win. Am a conqueror O.M.G really? Yeah I’m.

Amen

Why I Write Life Stories — May 30, 2015

Why I Write Life Stories

Living in the modern world you notice that the circle is complete. No new things occur. Everything that happens has already happened and is also happening somewhere else. Life covers much and so it is like an encyclopedia of occurrences.
As i live now i have read and heard stories of great people who inspired and still inspires the world today even though they are long time living dead. This is because someone wrote about them thus their stories are living.
It is the same spirit that pushed me towards writing about my stories of life because i don’t want someone to write them for me. I believe there is someone out there who goes through a similar challenge(s) and thinks of giving up. Once he/she comes across such a story they notice they aren’t alone and gets encouraged and moves on. Life story cover challenges, solutions and successes.
The world is digitalised today and so such e-articles reach many readers thus i believe it touches many souls.
Sharing a life story doesn’t equate to search of favours as people may take: don’t misquote writers.
My targets are always to inspire, educate,motivate,warn,advice, rebuke and instill courage into those soul almost giving up.
I have always worked heard trying to make my life what i want it to be. It’s well said be the change you want to see ;that’s the greatest idea behind my reasons.
I don’t seek favours but chances to express my deepest feelings and showcase my abilities and strength towards my future and success.
I always have time to think on what to write and so putting them down on a scroll isn’t a big deal.
Undergoing hardship is the best way to define a future because you get recharged and strengthened to work and walk towards SUCCEESS.
Live your life and don’t be selfish share it and let others know what you have done to be where you are.
Someone somewhere may mention you as his/her greatest mentor or one who inspires him/her at large.
