Opinion: Do women have a place in Governor Lee’s administration?

Today, social media users in Nakuru shared two photos. Both of the photos were a portrayal of male dominance in public service in Nakuru County under Governor Lee Kinyanjui. Having followed the discussions from the two photos, and as a woman, am left to wonder; do women really have a place in Governor Lee’s administration? The first of these photos was from 2018. The photo was shared by the governor himself where he’s seen posing with a team of men from Naivasha. This was the team put in place by…

Opinion: In Miguna saga, government has gone rogue

Fellow Kenyans; It is unfortunate that a Kenyan citizen is being subjected to inhuman treatment by the very government that swore to uphold the rule of law and protect its citizen. Kenyans believed that after the handshake we buried our political differences and embraced each other to forge ahead for the betterment of our country. Unfortunately, we’ve become masters of preaching water and drinking adulterated wine. If the government cannot obey court orders why should Wanjiku do? A state which savagely represses or persecutes its people cannot be regarded as…

Opinion: Children circumcision should be banned!

The month of December is one that comes with a series of parties and celebrations in Kenya. One such festival is circumcision for most boys transitioning to “adulthood” aged ten years to fifteen years, some even earlier than this age. It is at these celebrations that the boy child “faces the knife” even though he is too young to enter into such a commitment. While these actions might pass as “celebrations,” for some of these children, it is a nightmare. The Kenyan constitutional provisions are very protective of anyone below…

Opinion: Who will save the Boy Child?

It is sad that boy child is expected to be the stronger one despite the fact he is not getting any kind of support to retain his masculinity. Even simple things like emotional support have been taken away. The society demands on him are pushing him so close to the edge and the results are clear, either he takes his life or he wipes away the entire family. I think a man is also human with unique needs and deserves to be heard and considered. The death of such a…

What does the Kenyan media have against DP William Ruto?

There seems to be a calculated plot by the Kenyan media about DP William Ruto. I don’t know why they are doing it, but the mainstream Kenyan media seems hellbent on driving a wedge between the DP and the dynasties who see him as a threat. President Uhuru Kenyatta recently shook Raila’s hand. He says he’s not interested in 2022 election talks. As a peace-loving man president, Uhuru Kenyatta is currently focused on leaving a legacy as his second term comes to an end. Making peace with Raila and staying…
