Under the theme of environment, I decided to tackle Energy; its impacts, merits and demerits. The environment is a place that is a home to all living things. The process of keeping it clean and healthy can be a great deal to most living things. The topic ''Environment'' caught my attention in so many ways. I thought to myself, ''Where will we live if the environment is destroyed?'' Most forms of energy have negative impacts on the environment yet we still use them. Why? Hydro-Ele...

However unfair this may be, morals and traditions cannot be forced onto a society under whatever circumstances. It takes a lifetime to model and embrace culture and tradi...

The Pope has spoken about 2014. He calls for change, peace and unity across the planet. In my opinion, I believe the Pope to be as demanding as every other citizen of the Earth. Many skeptics thought 2013 was bad, unlucky even, because of the dreaded number 13. I think the bad quality of a year can only be attributed to the bad quality of the people who create it. And time is created by everyone! So, here's a proclamation to everyone saying that we should all get our heads out of t...

But the promise of this young country...

As postulated by George Joseph in his chapter on African Literature in Understanding Contemporary Africa is “the artistic use of words for the sake of Africa alone.” The African continent of vast lands and the black race through its illustrious literary works and its sound creative writers have been making significant changes. These c...

As Kenya turned 50 on 12-12-2013, I was celebrating peace, love and unity. Kenya has come a long way from the gruesome Post Election Violence that took place in 2007. I swell with pride and joy as I watch my serene country grow into the nation I will be forever proud of. Happy Birthday Kenya.
