as an author, i think its outrageous that your book or mine or any other written by a kenyan cannot be found in our supermarket shelves, which flood us with foreign titles...this is the impunity that bothers me the most

@RasnaWarah I totally agree with you on this. The UN ethos is to maintain peace and security but they have instead become complicit in many of the wars since the 90s. Leading to largest refugee crisis ever. UN stands by the war mongering West more than the rest. Unfit 4 purpose

In my book I have a list of recommendations on how to make the UN Security Council relevant and effective and how to make the UN more accountable to the taxpayers that fund it. Book also explores the UN's patriarchal and racist work environment.
UN needs urgent reform, especially on the security council. They could start by removing Veto power and expanding the council's permanent seats to include reps from all continents

When I showed someone this photo of Zimbabwe, they said it didn't "look like Africa".

KRA is especially endangering lives by increasing taxes on bottled drinking water and alcohol leaving people who will not be able to afford these to turn to illicit drinks and to drink impure water.

RASNA WARAH - Russia-Ukraine Crisis has Exposed the UN’s Inability to Prevent Wars | The Elephant theelephant.info/op-eds/2022… As Russia beats the drums of war, let us look at why the UN Security Council remains a mere bystander in this and other conflicts.

Listening to fellow Kenyans is difficult because they have to start worrying about what tribe you are, what party you support (or should support) and other nonsense apart from what you're actually saying

Belgians,they used to cut off your hand or your child’s hand if you didnt fill your quota for the day. They sell “chocolate hand” candies today. If you dont think that’s absolutely DIABOLICAL then i don't know what to tell you.

What a remarkable image. The daughter of Minoo Majidi--a mother of two who was killed by the Iranian regime while protesting for #MahsaAmini--stands at her mother's gravesite. She is defiantly unveiled, and in her left hand she holds the hair she cut from her head.

I will not stop screaming about this. Once again, just paid Ksh 500 to Kenya Power, they literally STOLE more than Ksh 300 from me and left me with Ksh 199.78 for tokens... Daylight robbery and the way it is, nothing will change. Nkt.

Refusing to let teenage girls go to the toilet 'because they should have gone at break'? It's worth bearing in mind their period may not have started conveniently between 10.40 and 11am... and no they shouldn't have to say it...

I agree to some extent. But must so many people die for Putin's cause?
I wish every single person in the West would listen to Putin's speech. Obviously, that won't happen so let me summarise as a professional translator for 10+ years. He states, as he has done from the outset, what his intentions and complaints are in the plainest terms possible.🧵

Maybe exporting opium to infidels is their revenge.
