“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...

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...

The human body is made up of approximately 60% of water; this is a widely known fact. Who would think just the simple combination of hydrogen and oxygen would create something so magical and vital to the very fabric of mankind. Without it, we would simply cease to exist. My mind goes back to many of the movies I had watched where aliens invade earth to steal or as I would call it- forcefully borrow- our planet. Let’s say hypothetically this was to happen today in 2017, every water...

She sat under an acacia tree, the wind blowing in her hair strong, brown and full of smog. The sun beat down on her face as the tiny leaves of the mighty acacia tree did little to provide shade. A pen and a book on her lap, her mind often wandered to a few years ago, to better times when she was younger.
