The Difference Between Campus Life In Nairobi And Upcountry

Every time I pass by the suitcase vendors in Nairobi town, I am reminded of that time when I was shopping for a suitcase for my freshman year in college in Kenya. I was admitted to one of the public universities in Kenya. My first choice had of course been The University of Nairobi or at the very worst Kenyatta University in Kenya.

My advice to the students in the universities in Kenya is that, they should   Continue reading ...

Being a day in January, the sun seemed to have dropped a few degrees down. I then walked along to Mfangano Street in the citybwhere I was to grab a movie from those movie vendors. The movie shop was packed to capacity as usual, and so I stood outside waiting for my turn to be served. A guy came up behind me, tapped my shoulder and said, “Ma’am you smell very good.
