Akombe resigns… a mother’s perspective

If you watched Akombe closely, you'd notice her constant wide smile... Even when there was nothing to smile about. I once commented that that was the "fakest" smile ever. A smile hiding pain, pressure, guilt and frustration. She may have loved her job and may have wished to do well by her bosses. But motherhood… Continue reading Akombe resigns… a mother’s perspective

Exactly my thoughts… Tay Tells it so well

TayTells

Dear future husband

I don’t know if I’ve asked or told you this before but I feel I need to again.

Please be consistent.

Don’t get me used to certain gestures and then suddenly stop when you see fit or feel like it.

My actions and my love is never inconsistent. I don’t expect yours to be either.

I pay attention to everything and if you can do certain things when you’re still trying to “get” me. You should continue doing those things, if not more, to keep me. I take note of everything, remember that.

I don’t have time for mediocre. So if you’re here to be inconsistent then I don’t want it. #imnotsettling

Just a heads up,

From your future wife

The city of Dar es Salaam, Tanzania is anything but quiet. An increasingly modern metropolis overlooking the Indian Ocean, Dar is home to 4.4 million people, and is one of the fastest growing cities on the African continent. It’s a cacophony of noises, sounds, colors, and smells; ironic for a city whose name means “Place of Peace.”

On one of Dar’s residential streets, however, there is a peaceful haven. Behind a stone wall sits the Mabinti Centre. The simple house hums with the sound of sewing machines.  The women working at the machines range in age from 16 to 30-years-old. They greet visitors with smiles and a warm welcome: “Karibu!” Bright kanga fabric and canvas slips beneath their whirring needles as an instructor crouches down to talk them through a difficult stitch, or to share encouragement. In the garden, ladies gather…

Being a sweet wine, I kept drinking and drinking and drinking, thank God I was not a designated driver, plus I was in good hands… Continue reading My Kingfisher Story
