Yesterday i saw two things that make me thank Wangari Maathai for her bravery.
I passed through Kiambu road where you see all these BEAUTIFUL INDIGENOUS trees.
Usually i pass through Uhuru park and saw the beautified park. It is looking so serene.
Now i do now for sure she deserved every minute of the Nobel Prize. One of the guys i was with in the car remarked the way the likes of William Ruto had carved part of the Karura forest for their greedy selves. Wonder why they want to president now, so they can have all the country to themselves. Shame!!!
Part of it is because just like most people i connect to nature. A beautiful garden/roundabout is bound to make my day. One day i had an assignment that took me to Industrial Area which i hated to death, but there is this roundabout beautified by BAT and that made my day.
Death of Mos Mos
Mos Mos in dholuo means slowly i hope. Now there is this mabatini structure in town which feeds large sums of people in Nairobi.
It has since been destroyed by the city fathers. I have no reason why they did it but yeah Mos Mos is no more. At least not in the location.
I remember my friend one day commenting
"the only time i get full is when i go to Mos Mos"
Mos Mos was the poor man's equivalent of K'Osewe's on Moi Avenue except of course they didnt serve the popular Osuga and Odhola (sp).
I really wonder why it was demolished. Word has it that they had grabbed that part of land as its owner seemed to be Joe Aketch the former mayor.
In other News
Econet Wireless might not be awarded the licence after all. There is a rumour doing rounds that the Govt is not impressed with one of the people in there who claim that the Government is really corrupt.
And with Odinga supposedly washing our dirty linen in public
Who says those people abroad are not going to vote? I guess the only way to counter his so called speech is to come and "hubiri" to the people abroad that your Govt is par excellence. I am not the greatest fan of the Odinga man but i think that attack is unnecessary.
And who is coming to my constituency?
I hear since the people of Rarieda have rejected their present MP for not singing Agwambo's tunes and he is changing constituencies which i think is a good move. The man is Raphael Tuju and the constituency is Kasarani. Well i would not have any qualms voting for the rejected man. After all in the bible it is said "the stone rejected by the builders became the corner stone"
Obviously the present Mp has no any chance of ever making it again to Bunge.
Just who is Mungiki and Kamjesh?
The difference between Lawyers and Real Estate Agents is that lawyers can speak English and Real Estate agents in Kenya speak Conllese says Bikozulu
