The Second Coming

By Nick Twinamatsiko: Dude must have been very daring, or I must have looked very gullible. As I walked past the Osagyefo statue that stood in front of my hall of residence, he accosted me and introduced himself as the Original Osagyefo – Jesus Christ of Nazareth! I know this has the ring of fiction – I have in fact […]

The Maid’s Son: Unhatched eggs and Tricia’s punishment

By JJ Mponye: Going over last night's events reminds me of one popular English saying, “Never count your chickens before they hatch”. We had not been intimate for quite a while. A month perhaps. And frankly I was as hungry for it as a starved pregnant lioness would be for game. My appetite was roused by some cute little models […]

A walk backstage

By Njoki Ngumi: I took a walk backstage today and gave silent props to all the people who hold life together and never get noticed. I study and (pretend to) work in a hospital, whether that’s a good or a bad thing, and in passing it's kind of sucky that humanity needs hospitals at all – and here it's so […]

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 […]

Misinforming media

By Nick Twinamatsiko: “If you don’t read the newspaper, you’re uninformed. If you read the newspaper, you’re mis-informed.” I didn't – perhaps couldn't – write that; Mark Twain did. My part has been the simpler one of finding, through experience, that it's true. I don't know about you, but I find that when I have first-hand knowledge of an event […]

Made in China

By Mpuga Rukidi The great Frenchman, sorry, the great Italian-turned Frenchman -Napoleon Bonaparte- was a war general. That is not news. What is news is that he could have, had he wished, earned a living as a Philosopher. He said, for instance, about two hundred years ago, that China was a sleeping giant who would shake the world when he […]
