As usual, we always support some righteous anger.

After a lot of thought and reflection, I decided to write something to Mwai Kibaki. Being an optimist, I felt it better to focus on the positive and find things to be grateful for. So I made a list:

Thank you for almost single handedly resurrecting the tribal tensions in this country.

Thank you for showing us that in this advanced day and age, in a civilized country like Kenya, we still need to jealously guard our democracy from people like you and those around you.

Thank you for helping to destroy trust in the Electoral Commission of Kenya, which now more than ever needed Kenyans to believe in it.

Thank you for showing how difficult it is in Africa for an incumbent to leave office, even when the people so obviously don’t want him.

Thank you for stealing an election, when we all thought it was impossible in this…

Wonderful song.

The Battousai

It’s easier to fall
and harder to stand.

It’s easier to cry
and harder to laugh,

And I don’t know how,
I don’t know why

But you’re the light on my shoulder
When I’m tired

It’s easier to run
and harder to be still

It’s easier to think
and harder to feel,

And I don’t know how,
I don’t know why

But you’re the light on my shoulder
When I’m tired

It’s easier to hide
and harder to trust

It’s easier to hate
and harder to love

And I don’t know how,
I don’t know anything

But you’re the temper in my voice
When I sing….

Walubengo's Den

We are at war

At war with the universe, the sky is falling

And the only thing that can save us now is sensitivity and compassion

But I know one thing’s for sure I’m gonna get my kicks before it all burns down
Yeah, some say tragedy is hard to get over

But sometime that tragedy means it’s over, soldier

From the academy league of rollers I deny being down, though they seem to hold us
My shoulders are strong, I prove them wrong

I ain’t doin’ nothing but moving on,

let the truth be known

But they talk that freedom matters

And didn’t even leave a ladder,


I work at the corner kiosk, we all got problems, problems

No one’s gon’ fly that low, no one’s gon’ save us now

How you feel?

You’re not alone, they’re all just jealous,


We don’t reach the sky no more,
