The Apprentice: The Parent Trap

By Kizzy Katawonga: A few days ago, I was washing my 3 year old daughter's long locks of African curly hair. She was laughing and having the time of her life as water and soap was getting everywhere. The rich sounds of her glee filled the bathroom. I marveled at the incredible amount of joy and wonder she was getting […]

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 […]

The Apprentice: He-Motions

By Kizzy Katawonga: Last Friday I watched a sermon from Bishop T.D. Jakes from 2006 on He-motions; a book he wrote for men about manhood. The sermon Jakes gave cut straight to my heart as the issues he spoke of were, and are, so poignant, so relevant and so pressing in this dark age we live in. He begins by […]

The Apprentice: The 10,000 Dollar Watch

By Kizzy Katawonga: I don't have a wristwatch. It's not for lack of desire. Lord knows I've always wanted one. For years I've longed for one. It's just that the one I want costs $10,000– Mutwalo gya doola as they say. Ok, I know what you must be thinking. He's lost his black mind! But here's the thing. It's a fantastic watch. Actually, to […]

The Apprentice: No good men

By Kizzy Katawonga: In the book of Luke, it’s told of a certain ruler who approaches Christ and asks, “Good teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?” Christ answers him “Why do you call me good? No one is good but One, that is God” For the longest time I found this answer of the Messiah to be […]

The Apprentice: If girls run the world, then who needs men?

By Kizzy Katawonga: Who runs the world? Girls. That's what Beyonce wants us to believe with her hit song. So does Alicia Keys who sings Superwoman. I hear a lot of these songs lately. Call them women's empowerment anthems. There is a tsunami of women's lib and empowerment that is sweeping modern society like never before. It's great to see women finally being […]

She Species

By Kizzy Katawonga: So this is a question that has consistently clawed at my nerves for years now. Where are all the good men? It creates wild pictures of a dying race of female aliens traveling billions of light years across the galaxy in search of good men and abducting every single last one off the planet in a bid […]

The Apprentice: Unsung Heroes

By Kizzy Katawonga: Did you know that last Sunday the 17th was Fathers day? Yeah,  probably not. I don’t blame you. I got a lump sum total of one best wishes for the day; from my wife. Whom I reminded. Eck! Yes, it’s that bad. The world in general doesn’t really give a damn about father's day. Not really anyways. […]
