Back to Grind

I have spent countless days waking up late, binge-watching my favorite TV series and shows and football matches no matter how late the game is. I was really enjoying myself, then I came to an uncomfortable realization; it is time to go back to work. Today is my first day in the office, and making […] Read more…

Tucker strokes my hair.

Back in November 2017, I was lounging around with Catherine a friend of 9 yrs and our boyz crew in Kimana en route Tanzania in one of our road trips escapades,  when I had a revelation that “I want to cut my hair short,” I said aloud to my friends while were in the shamba. “Like how […] Read more…

Chambua Reading Party 2

Before we talk about serious stuff, let me take you through a few words I learnt through this whole experience. The auditor’s language referred to as  budget Audit terms; Unsupported expenditure: This means that there was an expenditure reported by a ministry but there is not enough documentation to be sure that the spending was […] Read more…

Chambua Reading Party 1

A few weeks ago the Open Institute in collaboration with International Budget Partnership (Kenya),  the National Taxpayers Association, Development Initiatives and Institute of Public Finance (Kenya), launched an online tool for Kenyans to calculate their total tax contribution be it in income or their lifestyles taxes, through day-to-day spending called Kobole. It was very interesting […] Read more…

A date with Omidyar Network

“Kare!” An authoritative voice calls out. Yes, Sir! I respond. “Let’s go!” As he walks out of office headed to the parking lot…In haste and confusion, I start to pack the few items I would need for a meeting; notebook, pen, and my ladylike handbag.  Why I say ladylike,  is because in recent days I have […] Read more…

Fake Cheese 2.

………first off, let me start by saying, in all years of my life (you must be wondering how old I am, I guess you will never know..haha), this last year has been the worst. I have never encountered so many fake friends. How one minute they’re right by your side and the next they’re gone […] Read more…

Fake Cheese? 1

Nah, Thanks!   A few days ago, at our local joint, I overheard some of my friends both male and female friends gossiping ( to mean gossiping cuts across both genders….wild laughter!). Having known them, like a good fly on the wall, I stayed rooted in my spot just across the table, trying so hard […] Read more…

What if I told you……

…..in case you haven’t noticed, that Christmas is a month away and January two months away! Got you thinking huh? Don’t worry, it had me at #2018 what the eff was that?! When we’re swept up in the cheer of the holiday season, it’s tempting to make overly ambitious resolutions for the new year. ‘I’ll […] Read more…

Sculptor's Attitude.

First five days of the week are the most difficult days before the weekend. Yeah! I know this all too well. When we were growing, we wanted to be grown-ups so that we can either curse, do whatever we want without being answerable you anyone. But this paying bills wasn’t part of the plan. (sobs) […] Read more…
