Still in deep pain,

I probably want to eat my tears.

Poem: Where I’m From

January 28, 2015 9:57 pm0 comments by:

I’m from swaying coastlines and clichéd continents. I learned languages so divergent,in places as different as vegetarian pigs and carnivorous plants. I’m from sunshine that lulls you to sleep and sand that exfoliates more than just your feet. I’m from the smell of tamales on the corner of Market. I’m from different cultures and languages, from Spanish to Kenyan. I’m from mothers yelling at their doorsteps in voices uncomprehended, they yell in different tongues but with the same expressions. “Get Back in the house” “Ingia kwa nyumbani” they shout, the same look of indignant concern mirrored in their rainbow of faces. I’m from diversity, from the world that has been […]

Wedding on A Credit Card

2:04 am0 comments by:

The whole place was elegantly beaming with class. A lavish Somali wedding that was definitely over the top and without a doubt, one that had the touch of highly paid professional experts. From top to bottom, it was draped with perfection. From the look of things, the brother must have dished out at least a cool 50 grand for that wedding if not more. It was held in an exclusive top-notch hotel—a $60 a plate kind of place— not my taste but ridiculously expensive nonetheless. It was entry by invites only, if you did not flash a card you had no luck getting in. The groom and bride looked awesomely […]

Last week Monday a friend walked into my office brimming with excitement. He asked me a bizarre question – rather smirkily, I might add – “How do you think apartheid ended?”

As Tanzanians celebrate our 52nd anniversary of independence and also Mandela’s life,we must remember our values as a nation!

A lot has been said about Mandela this week and if I attempt to put one more word about him, I will only be repeating, at best. Nevertheless, as we are celebrating our 52nd year of independence today, it is inevitable not to relate what the independence of Tanganyika in 1961 meant to freedom fighters in Southern parts of Africa – in this context South Africa’s struggle against apartheid.

Should South Africans hate themselves and hate Malawi more?

It doesn’t take a lot for President Jacob Zuma to upset South Africans, and (it appears) indeed the whole continent. Whatever the source of contempt for President Zuma, it appears to cloud our judgment completely.

South Africa: Young womanly bodies, underage sex and adolescent pregnancy

October 3, 2013 3:54 pm0 comments by:

Since the advent of its current constitutional dispensation in 1994, South Africa has, at least in law, done away with patriarch systems of morality that dictate to women how to live their lives or to carry their bodies.

The Constitution of the Republic of South Africa entitles women to equality before the law and a right to equal protection and benefit of the law (section 9). Women have inherent dignity and a right to have their dignity respected and protected (section 10).
