We have come to the end of the month. Every time, I start to blog, I wonder whether I should start with a title or it should come after. So far, this has not got a title yet. By the time, you read this, it will have one. Anyway, enough about titles. On to serious stuff now: Let us take a look at what happened in September.
On top of the list is the terror attack on the Westgate Mall in Nairobi. The Al-Shaabab claimed responsibility. They chose a Saturday to unleash their deadly havoc on hapless and innocent shoppers at the mall. The results are still felt to date. A lot of lives were lost and many people were seriously injured. But Kenya rose above it all.
However, more than a week later, a lot of people are still missing and the Kenyan government has not yet provided the answers that we seek. I continue to pray for the peaceful rest of the souls of the departed ones. To the injured, I wish you a speedy recovery. May the good Lord find you.
Back home in Uganda, the registration of bodabodas has only become a news byte. The authorities and the riders are yet to agree on terms and conditions. Till then, we are watching and waiting.
This next paragraph is dedicated to my amazingly wonderful friend SavvyKenya. I love you more than I can express on these pages. I promised to continue blogging. I will keep my fingers on the keyboard.
To my brother, Lloyd, this is blog #1, start counting….
The teachers went on strike demanding for a payrise that had been promised to them. This affected the beginning of the 3rd term. The strike was countrywide. Even though, the government and the teachers seem to have reached an understanding, it is still not clear what the teachers will do next.
The rains are here. This means that most of our roads will disappear as is the norm.
In October, there are few things that I have to accomplish and I hope to do so:
- 1. Mavuno Church
I promised Lloyd and Brenda that I would pay a visit to Mavuno Church. I have only been up to the doorstep of the church. This month, I am stepping in.
- 2. Kigali
I have not seen my folks in Kigali in a very long time. Very soon, I will be with you guys. The ticket is bought and the bag is packed. Here, I come…
- 3. Kisaasi
After staying in Ntinda for the last 7 years, it looks like Kisaasi will soon be my new home. We are still working on a few finishing touches.
- 4. Better
Every month, I promise to be better professionally, morally, spiritually and financially. However, I do this behind closed and whisper it to God. This time, I am making a public announcement.
I think this should have been on top of the October to-do list.

- 5. Project Fame VI
Tusker, the sponsors of Project Fame 1 to 5, are at it again. This year, they have promised a bigger and better season. Sit still and watch.
I should be paid for this ad…
