“Accept and Move On” Mentality will be death of us Kenyans.

In March 2013 following the announcement of the  Presidential poll results  for the General Election, a new phrase was coined. The catchphrase “accept and move on” became sweet like honey to the lips of many; mostly supporters of the Jubilee coalition who were declared the winning coalition that would form the next Government of Kenya.This phrase was meant to put off dissenting voices from the losing coalition-CORD, who had claimed that the whole electoral process was flawed amidst a myriad of demands among them nullification of the vote which they later on pursued to the corridors of justice but lost through a Supreme Court ruling which upheld the election into office of Uhuru Muigai Kenyatta as the 4th President of Kenya.

WHO Killed the Christmas Spirit?

Its December already?Oh boy! As I sit here, I am a bit perturbed that I am not really feeling the Christmas mood. Whatever happened to the Christmass spirit? I can bet that  I am not the only one feeling who feels this déjàvu feeling every other year in December. With the high paced life that we currently live; swamped with work and daily struggles, I won’t be too quick to blame myself or any other person oblivious that Christmas is just around the corner. I have walked around town lately and realized they don’t paint shops anymore with ‘Father Christmas’  (Santa Claus)faces and Christmas wonder it still looks like midyear.
