Listen guys, the law is totally blind to physical attributes of any culprit and too much sentimentalism. Whether ugly or angelically beautiful, they all get treated equally before the law. The courts will only analyze facts surrounding the crime in question, in order to establish the motive of the suspect beyond reasonable doubt. Stabbing a person once might be an accident but 25 times, NO! That's premeditated murder. Kitchen knives are not kept in the bedroom. She knew exactly what she wanted to do when she went for that knife.
I rushed back to the hospital and sat by her bedside. As I nervously held the feeble poor little thing in my hands, too many thoughts raced through my mind. Tears stung my eyes, but I fought them back. Where I come from, men don't cry in public since It's considered a sign of weakness - a taboo. At least, that's what we grew up knowing.
One more thing. The toy is already on sale in the UK and one goes for £3,500 only. That is roughly half a million Kenyan shillings! So, after all, this seems like a rich boy's toy, isn't it?

We allow egotistic and irreparably corrupt idiots to lead us right from the political front to our hallowed corridors of the academia, but still hope that all shall be well. Why do we keep doing the same thing, the same way, over and over, but expect different results?
Not even our Muslim brothers and sisters have been spared by the deterioration of morality in places of worship. We have repeatedly heard of Imams who radicalize young people in mosques, by training them how to hate and kill, instead of teaching them how to love! Isn't God all about love?

These idle army of mercenaries are gossip-hungry and never dwell on one issue for too long. However, they know how to inflict the greatest damage with their hash tags (or is it harsh-tags?) within a very short time, before they move on to their next unlucky victim or hot topic of gossip.
#Mylittlething On 25th this month, we will be marking exactly four years since the demise of Kenya’s only and Africa’s first woman to win the Nobel Peace prize.
