“Grandfather, where have mama and papa gone to?” The small child asked while clinging to the old man’s torn shirt. The old man looked longingly into the distance. “They have gone to look for milk and honey my child”, he replied. He lifted the boy with one swoop ignoring the painful ache of his back. Together, they managed to walk to the frail tree which was in the middle of the compound. The old man sighed as he sat the down placing the boy carefully on his lap. “But grandfather our land hasn’t...

To say the truth, many families have benefited from this project: homes have been lit up, businesses and various institutions such as schools and hospitals are up and running. About 65.0% of electricity in Kenya is generated locally using renewable energy sources (hydropower 35.9%, geothermal 25.86%,...

When I decided to pursue a Bachelor of Science in Ecotourism and Hospitality Management at Kisii University many of my family members and friends had no idea what it was or what it entailed. Many of them thought it had something to do with hospitals, ignoring the “ecotourism” part and going straight to the word “hospitality” of course.When I explained to them what my major really entailed and broke their visions of me in hospital scrubs and a stethoscope, they looked at me confused and worried....

Now, now I know from the title of this post your mind might probably jump straight into the thought of some group of people or a person going around committing some debauchery or raunchy acts without any care in the world. Sorry love, I’m talking about a whole different kind of rebel.When I think of rebels throughout history my mind thinks of great human beings like Plato, Nelson Mandela, Mahatma Gandhi, Nikola Tesla, Socrates, Wangari Maathai, Jesus Christ, Elon Musk, Martin Luther King, Einste...

It was a glorious day. The temperature was exceedingly high that particular afternoon and the sky was bluer than the iconic dress Lupita Nyong’os wore when she put Kenya on the pedestal claiming the coveted Oscar. Again, history was being made as the Space Shuttle KE17 was about to depart from the Nairobi Aeronautical Space Station at approximately 1600hrs. The year was 2085 and Munyaka Wanjagi sat in the women’s changing room dressing for what was going to become the most memorable day of her l...
