Photo by Ulrik De Wachter from FreeImages “It’s sunrise… Get up now son. We have a long day ahead of us.  And fix the roof before you do anything else. The heavy rains are about to start any time from today.” …. ……… “Juma! Get up!” The deep loud voice echoed across the circular mud…

SUPER GLUE

The way it works. Efficiency at its finest. Just three grams enclosed in a small black plastic bottle with an orange lid can join the most teared surfaces within a minute. As I said, efficiency at its finest. The bottle comes with a small stainless steel needle which pierces through the plastic bottle. All you…

The White Light

“Hey babe it’s on! It’s live! Switch on the news! It has started!” Jane took the rice off the cooker and placed it next to the kitchen sink. She removed the rice from the hot sufuria and placed it in a blue hotpot: her favorite of them all. She neatly closed the hotpot and swiftly…

The Twins

“We are gathered here to celebrate a life well lived of my brother, Mr. James. His sun rose on August 24th 1985 and set on the 30th of June 2019. His life on Earth was full of up and downs, to say the least. But this did not stop him. He went from a young…

It is blown across a busy road with matatus and lorries raging in different…

Him And Her II

The Drug Addict

“We’re in this together,” They said. “We are more than friends and junkies. We are family,” They said. …..   I hear the sound of ocean waves gracefully swooshing along the seashore in a slow but vigorous manner.
