“In” and “Out”

Lebogang Sewela: “I stopped feeling the way I used to feel about you!” Those magic words that make your heart feel desolate and keep your mind conjecturing. When your partner says those words to you, you find yourself in a dream-zone because it feels like the anti-climax in one of Tyler Perry's romance movies. You hunt for the right words […]

The Apprentice: The Yes Man

By Kizzy Katawonga: You know him. He’s everywhere around us. He's so common we notice him about as much as we notice that back of our hand. He doesn't stand out at all. Nothing out of the ordinary. He never breaks the status quo, never rocks the boat. He's boring and predictable. He gets along with everyone, offending no one. He's […]

“Friends with Benefits”

By Owuor Kuyoh: I usually walk into the house on most evenings just in time to dig into the night's culinary cuisine. My timing is so impeccable, on more than one occasion I have strolled in mouthing the word “Amen!” in unison with everyone else. Sadly, no one in my house appreciates an awesome entry so as I stand there […]

My Life

Talent Nqongo: My life, my drama, my tears and my pain All the struggles, the hustles, dilemmas in my way No words spoken, neither a direction down the drain Oh dear Lord Can you hear me in the alley with the rain? Barricaded in these city walls and nothing left to gain Feels like leprosy, all types of cancer – […]

Do we really “need” to relate?

By Brian Bwesigye: I am torn between two worlds. I no longer know which world says the truth and where the lies come from. I can't tell the victims from their oppressors; the wronged from the 'wrong-ers'! Kyefaamu has for the last three years moaned and moaned about the wickedness of men. You may think that her legs have received […]

Sequins and Sapphires: Through His Eyes (2)

By Kathryn Kazibwe: “What a friend we have in Jesus, all our sins and grief to bear…” I love this hymn. The melody is simple yet electric, and the lyrics touch one deeply; they pregnant with meaning. And this morning the choir sounds angelic to my ears, they sing each word like they have intimate knowledge of it. It is […]
