Education could have lied about Africa

By Mpuga Rukidi Ozymandias. Yes, that poem by Percy Bysshe Shelley. My first encounter with it was in Junior High School, as part of my English language lessons. My teacher, a tall, skinny soul, with sight so unadmirable, was labouring to tell us that it was an outstanding piece of literature. The poem had a wine-like influence on me: the […]

Do not stone me!

By Adebayo Okeowo: I sat there miffed but couldn't show it. It was such a weird feeling to be having while seated in such a serene room. The arrangement of the senior pastor's office was impeccable. If Jesus were to be here, He will probably applaud the Pastor for setting such a good example for kingdom order and excellence. But […]

Let’s talk about Porn

By Tafadzwa Razemba: Ephesians 5:11 Have nothing to do with fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them. Bodies writhing, ok maybe not writhing, more of spasmodic movements.

Actually, popping corn would […]
