Message to Men: There's more to a marriage than wearing a wedding ring & adding weight

I know of very few men who got married and didn't add weight. In my social circle, they are just a handful. In fact their inability to add weight can be explained. Some inherited skinny genes from their ancestors. Others are fighting bankruptcy depression. Having taken a huge loan the size of Uzebkistan's GDP to simply show off by throwing a big fat garden wedding. Still others are burdened with too many responsibilities. Like sustaining the celebrity lifestyle for their mistresses or paying a car loan, for them to care about adding weight.

I hate wedding committees.., Yes I said it

I'm not going to mince words. I hate wedding committees. For those who live in another planet. Wedding committees are formed to assist the wedding couple in making decisions regarding the wedding. Their lo-o-o-o-ng list of job description includes, though not limited, to selecting service providers, fundraising and handling the logistics of the wedding day. It's a noble idea. In fact I think its the best invention after slice bread. Though frankly speaking, I think most couples are utterly exploiting and abusing this great human invention.

Why I will marry a Kenyan woman

I'm a worried Kenyan man. Our potential marriageable women are getting extinct. Look around, the potential wife material are all being plucked by foreigners left and right. I frequently bump into odiero's and our African broda's at the airport exporting their latest catch.

Don't confuse good sex with love

I had an interesting chat this past weekend with a good close friend of mine. "I think I am dating the worse guy ever," she blurred out without a warning. Well, this is where my journalistic curiosity kicks in. Minutes later, this is what I gathered from her.

I am looking for my Mwende

Three months ago, I was seated at the counter of Club Casaurina in Mtwapa, Mombasa County with the company's driver as we irrigated our throats with frothy waters.

If Kenya's First Lady was from my village

I have lots of respect, praise and admiration for Kenya's First Lady, Margaret Kenyatta. I love the way she carries and presents herself. She is classy, intelligent, stylish, elegant and most importantly very down to earth. She is very soft spoken (a little coy even). She is generous with her smile, and I believe with her purse too.

Why I pity most Kenyan entrepreneurs

The customer, I was told by Mr. Onyango, my stout, tall, black, huge-framed Standard Seven Business Education teacher, is the foundation of any business. He used to emotionally emphasize (sometimes his emphasis involved corporal punishment) that a business that doesn't value its customers will end up under the lakebed of Lake Victoria.

The Day I Bought Love in Kampala, Uganda

Last weekend as Nairobians went crazy with Safaricom Sevens rugby tournament, while others went to salivate at vintage cars at the Concours d’Elegance. I was in Kampala, Uganda in search of sin.
