South Africa a big brother tormenting other Africans.

I hate to watch any clip that has violence let alone where human beings are clobbered and burnt to death. I opened one such clip I received via WhatsApp. It was shocking, killing others simply because they are from a different country and ” YOU THINK ” they took your imaginary job. What I haveContinue reading “South Africa a big brother tormenting other Africans.”

*Mombasa is NOT on the verge of death*

While we have challenges in Mombasa I don’t entirely agree with the claim that Mombasa is on its death bed. Tourism is doing great after many years of bad times .

Rwanda ) into Mombasa and close to 15 charters fromContinue reading “*Mombasa is NOT on the verge of death*”

Jobless graduates please cut them some slack…..You messed the economy.

We messed the country and the many jobs that were promised are no longer forthcoming. We now have the cheek to blame the young graduates who have worked hard and the parents who sacrificed everthing to see them through university and college. They are now been blamed for not being creative and entrepreneurial enough. WhatContinue reading “Jobless graduates please cut them some slack…..You messed the economy.”

Outgoing MD made it clear, if KQ is not given the approval to take over JKIA then it will be a dead end for KQ.Continue reading “Nationalizing Kenya Airways? We have walked that path before.

A double decker JKIA Westlands road is simply wasting money.

I will NEVER tire saying this Addis Ababa have replicated what Bankgok has done. Sky train not a double decker road. Nairobi does NOT need a double decker road from the airport to Westlands. It’s simply waste of money. If only building a wider road could solve our traffic headache why is Thika highway alreadyContinue reading “A double decker JKIA Westlands road is simply wasting money.”
