Lakes in Kenya – Another Glamorous site of the Great Rift Valley


Lakes in Kenya

Lake Nakuru (Home to flamingos)

Oh my! The beautiful and glamorous sites of the Lakes in Kenya can only but add up to the already existing humor and spectacular, glittering rich and natural heritage bestowed unto our mother land Kenya. If you want to protect and keep your young face fresh or turn your already wrinkled face to the world of smiling then join me in this incredible journey of discovery.

What a diversity of richness? The wonder of the Great Rift Valley has only ignited the prehistoric fissure.  The oldest, largest and deepest lakes in Kenya are ranked world wide. They extend from the highest part in the north to the deepest end of the south. Exciting adventure isn’t it?

Criminal Minds in Kenyans


Criminal Minds in Kenya indeed! Excuse me, if you imagine for one lousy second am writing about “criminal minds” the movie, you are dead wrong. I am writing about the 21st century human madness. Did you ask what this madness of Criminal Minds in Kenya is?

Occasionally I get irritated with the naivety of the innuendos of words that only seem to aggravate the already polluted environment. ‘My God you don’t have to go anywhere, just pass by the city of Nairobi and let me know of your experience’ with Criminal Minds in Kenya

The Mystery of Criminal Minds in Kenya

Criminal Minds in Kenya

Hawkers Seeling wares in CBD

Criminal Minds in Kenya has more to do with our abilities to commit crime at every excuse irrespective of which side of the law we are standing.

You might want to put me to task because of my pronouncement, off course it’s allowed, but remember my noble intention is not to insinuate or allege anything sinister. I am only going to state some factual evidence to support my claims of Criminal Minds in Kenya.

How many of you have an opportunity to stroll in the busy streets of Nairobi? Or let me rephrase the question; which one of you by any chance doesn’t know about the city council by laws? Or have you ever been affected, perfected or infected by this ‘Kanjo’? What I am trying to find out is whether you have been either a prey or a victim.

It’s a pity that I have to use this term; Criminal Minds in Kenya, yet we have to intensively interrogate or have a conversation with ourselves just to see the degree of our involvement.

Criminal Minds in Kenya and the madness of the ‘city Kanjo’ (city council reinforcement officers)

Last evening I was proudly having the last of my final laps before boding my favorite Nissan, in the comfort of my ability when some disturbance caught up with me. Not so fast! A sudden hilarious and thunderous noise punctuated by confused helter-skelter movements almost made me to fly with my two knees. Someone knocked me almost making me bespectacled.

An Education System, once good but with flaws now


Education System

Education System

When the 8:4:4 Education System was first introduced in Kenya it seemed to work wonders. Primary students were able to cook food, mend and repair their own clothing. They were able to knit sweaters and make dresses including petticoat. Home science was my favorite subject, I couldn’t wait to attend the next class and practice what my teacher had taught me. Truly this was an amazing country.

The 8:4:4, Education System that was loved

The initial intention of the 8:4:4, Education System was to equip the student with practical knowledge that endeared them with parents. They were taught and assessed on the basic practical fundamentals that enabled them to live in a family unit. ‘I was taught how to cook a cake and ever since, I love doing the same. I can cook for myself without strain. I was practically taught how to wash different types of fabrics and how to dry them.’

The Education System enabled those who never proceeded with their education to be self employed and reliant. Parents never had major problems with their children.

 Constant changes in the 8:4:4, Education System perfects the art of memorizing to pass

The ideal situation for any Education System is to ensure that one learns to think and acquire knowledge that will be of beneficial use to him and others, now and in the future. The current Education System is stressful to the student since it only trains them to memorize subjects in order for them to pass and advance to the next level. It succeeds in putting pressure on the students.

Most students, who advance to Institutions of higher learning, find it very difficult to adjust to fit in the Education System of critical thinking. They are used to the system of memorizing and this increases the level of pressure. This means that pressure will continue mounting even at their work places. Could this be a possibility, why young people today find it difficult staying in one job for long?

Critical thinking is a very vital tool for any current and future engagements and endeavors. We can not have a qualified Medical doctor or Engineer who can not apply critical thinking in their work spaces. It would be disastrous if they’d apply only memory in areas that have conflicting or similar presentations and require diagnosis that involves critical thinking.

8:4:4, Education System has undergone several changes, sometimes removal of necessary or important subjects and heaping or overburdening students with subjects least useful in their future assignments.

Should we embrace an Education System that encourages talent development?

Most youngsters grow up to their mid twenties before they discover that they are talented in a particular field. It has been very challenging for Parents who push their children to acquire specific knowledge in order for them to be in certain preferential professions. These kids sometimes end up becoming rebellious and opt to choose another field of their interest even after completion of the initial course.

The 8-4-4 Education System has been with us since 1985, those who underwent through the system are now parents who are ill equipped to handle their children. Situations where a parent advocates for a particular area of specialization and a child another are very common resulting to un necessary conflicts.

Our Education System does not nature talents, talents that are viewed unfavorably are discouraged by parents, and the children have no place to turn to for redress if one finds himself in this kind of situation.

An Education System that would encourage students to identify particular areas of interest from early age would be important in child development. An Education System that includes and emphasizes on extra curricula activities is needful.

All concerned parties i.e. parents, the Education Ministry and other interested parties should urgently and seriously come together and draft an Education System that fulfills the dreams of Vision 2030, otherwise it will be an exercise in futility to have a vision and the ones expected to fulfill it do not know what to do. Most are frustrated from looking for the exclusive job opportunity and they are not equipped to start a business of their own. Seriously something should urgently be done on our Education System
