Mututho attributes rising murder cases to poor parenting and effects of drug addiction

The recent trend of murder cases among young generation has been attributed to poor parenting and effects of drug addiction. Former Nacada Boss John Mututho says unless the government and the society accepts to deal with the vises, then there could be even more cases witnessed in the days to come. Speaking in Nakuru on Monday during an interview at his rehab and empowerment Centre-JOMEC, the former Naivasha Legislator also blamed the government for not coming up with policies to address the same.

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…

The Solai Dam tragedy trash donations

I stopped collecting donations of used clothes and shoes from Kenyans because it can be very embarrassing to deliver them to those in need. A case in point is the recent Solai Dam disaster when a dam on Patel farm burst leaving scores dead and property worth millions destroyed. On Wednesday this week I with a team of counsellors from Psychiatric Disability Organization of Kenya (PDO -K), were on the ground conducting a psychological needs assessment and conducting psychological first aid to the victims of the disaster. But the images…

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…

13th Law of Power – Why Ruto should cease talking of Kikuyus Debt

In 433 BC, two Greek City-States wanted to enlist a third City-state on their side. Corinth wanted Athens on its side. Likewise, Corcyra wanted Athens on its side.

Due to a stroke of history, Athens could be considered the mother of Corcyra and grandmother to Corinth. In a way, Athens was indebted to both. It was of this debt that Corinth talked about as it sought to…

Encounter with Susan Kihika, Nakuru Boxing Club

As I sat among other members of Nakuru Boxing Club in the middle of the night, nursing a drink and drowning my sorrows, little did I know that a light was just about to go on in my life. There was this young lady of little stature but who oozed a lot of power. She was jovial and had come in accompanied by this high delegation to our dinner. As time progressed, I observed that like a queen, there were lots of people paying homage to her as others sought…
