The accident claimed E-Sir and it took a while before the news of the death sank. Speaking about the accident in a past interview Nameless says

I did not know from the time I was taken to hospital when it all happened. I was told he was in a different hospital.

I had no phone or other way of reaching him. My bro came from Nairobi. I asked everyone and no one told me.

My brother is the one who told me, ‘E-Sir didn’t make it.

It did not sink in, like you know you were with someone and then you are told they are no more, it cannot sink in.

5 career lessons everyone should know about the job market

“Work hard and get those good grades so that you get that perfect career job,” are some of the words that we have all heard in our years of growing up.

However, as you get into that job space you realize that not everything is on a silver platter like they once said.

So here are 5 lessons that  you need to know in the career world.

1. Success takes time

Success takes a lot of hard work and simply just sticking to your plan is very important.

Being happy in your career doesn’t come as easily as you think or just with a blink of an eye, reaching success takes time  and accepting this requires patience.

One more thing, success doesn’t happen by taking one bold leap. Don’t forget the little steps you take along the way, they may not seem much now,they may even seem insignificant  but years from now, you will be glad you took them.


Eight crucial steps to perfect your online profile for future employers


2. Even your best career will have its down sides 

Even on your worst days, that carer is still worth the try, it may have some down sides to it like working long shifts, little or small pay but that does not necessarily mean you have to quit that job.

Looking at the positive side to that job will help you know your initial goal and that is to work hard  reaching for that success.

3. Your idea of a dream job can change

In the job industry, the idea of what you have in mind as a dream job can easily change. The truth is everyone deserves to love their career, but more importantly everyone has the ability to do so.

It won’t happen immediately, and along the way you might find that you are good at another career than the one you thought you were good at.

You may have thought that your career path was writing but you may find that you are also really good at anchoring.


The crazy myths told about women in these 6 careers

4. Career happiness require work

Ever been in a work environment and you see people leaving their work stations everyday with a smile of their face? Do you wonder why? Do you wonder what their secret is ? You may even think they got a work promotion  or won the lottery 365 days of the year.

Well the real secret is that people work hard to get to where they are .

Some may not have even loved the job when they stared but they persevered during all those low days and low paying jobs just to get to where they are.

5. You can create your own opportunities

In every job career, when it comes to making moves in our career, we tend to wait for permission. We wait for someone to show us all the ropes instead of going to get the experience yourself.

We wait to get job promotions and increase in salaries instead of working hard to acquire you own job/firm so as to become less dependent of that place to begin with.

It’s a trap we so easily fall into when in reality, we are the only ones who can give ourselves permission to do something.  You can accomplish much more in a team than by yourself of course, but do not let the absence of help pull you down.

“I am determined to kill this guy and go to jail” Heartbroken woman swears after finding out her boyfriend is cheating on her with her blood sister

A woman has experienced first hand what it means to be stabbed behind your back after finding out her boyfriend is cheating.

The hurting part is not that he is cheating, but the fact that he is cheating with her own blood sister is something she feels she cannot forgive him for.

Due to the emotional distress she says she feels like killing him or committing suicide, but is it worth it?

“I want to commit suicide or pay some group of boy’s to kill my boyfriend, my boyfriend is dating my own blood sister, that’s our last born that stay with me.
I never know that my boyfriend is dating my sister and at the same time dating me. According to my sisters explanation they started dating since December, while  both of us started dating in February. I can’t look at my sisters face, I can’t talk to her, am depressed.


I am devastated, am thinking of what to do to him.
I broke in tears this morning when my sister ask me if I know this guy and she mentioned his name and I said yes, and she said hope I’ll not feel bad that the guy was her boyfriend, that she opened my phone and she saw all my conversion with him on WhatsApp.”


She emotionally goes on to narrate how she kept away her men from her house to protect her sister but it seems that was not good enough.

 “She also used my phone to call the guy and confronted him but he couldn’t say anything.  my sister is 18 years, ever since she came to stay with me,I am not used to coming with any man in my house.
I didn’t know  that when I go to work that she goes to the guy’s house and she refused to open up to me, am proud of her that she’s still a virgin.  Advice me on what to do because i am determined to kill this guy and go to jail.”

I have carried out 5 abortions, unknowingly killing my twins in the process

The topic of abortion is a sensitive one but not until you hear the story of one Nairobi woman who has carried out not one, not two but five abortions.

Martha Anne has seen it all, but the sad thing about all this is that her last termination was  of a set of twins.

Speaking about her harrowing experience on a local TV station she says;

“I grew up in a very protective family so here I was at 17 after finishing my O Levels someone asked my dad for my hand in marriage and just like that my dad booked me a ticket to India to go study.

There was money, booze and freedom. It was not before long that I started having irregular menses so I went to visit a doctor.

To my shock the doctor told me that my body was self aborting, to say I was shocked would be an understatement given that I have always wanted kids.”

‘If you are a man in your 30’s or 40’s still living with your mum you don’t deserve to wear trousers’ Shouts city man

She adds

“I now went deep into partying six months later I was pregnant for the same guy.When I told him he panicked and  convinced me to terminate it.

 I went to the same doctor and carried out the abortion.”

The wise men said ‘Once bitten twice shy’ but that was not the case for Martha Anne given that months later she was pregnant.

She says

“We went on studying but 6 months later I was pregnant for the same guy. I started developing stomach pains.

When I went to the doctor he told me that the pregnancy was not so good thus carrying it to term would put me at a risk, so it was terminated.

After the third abortion I got into depression, more s#x , more booze, the body does not forget some things, most of my pregnancies were always at 4 months.


2 years later I got pregnant with the same guy. I had purposed to keep this baby until a friend of mine busted my bubble after he went and told the guy.

He came back and convinced me to terminate it, to date I still hate the smell of Hospitals.”

‘I’ve been married for 18 years and my mother-in-law does not know where we live’ Brags city woman

Martha goes on to narrate that she got pregnant for a fifth time, went on to terminate it without knowing she had carried twins.

“I met a guy who made me fall for him and within no time I was pregnant again. He started noticing and he panicked because he was there on sponsorship.

So the naive me felt pity for him and decided to terminate it. I went to a doctor and the doctor said Ok. In India abortion is legal until three months they do not have an issue.

However after three months you must have a doctor’s letter. After they started the process, I started experiencing breathing problems and they stopped and took me for an Ultra sound.

They found out I was expecting twins. He even asked why I wanted to get rd of such beautiful kids. I told him that I just wanted them out.”

She adds

“I was in the maternity for three days with excruciating pain, sorrow, pain beyond measure nothing was happening.

People were here to give birth yet I was here to get rid of mine.


At some point I wished I could keep the babies but it was already too late since I had already been induced. In the morning I just prayed to God and told him how sorry I was.

I got some strength and went to where the babies had been put. Seeing them hugging each other broke me. I cried so hard.

I have never cried so hard in my life. They looked exactly like their dad.”

What is considered a taboo among Kisii community

There are some acts considered to be a taboo among the kisii community. They are as follows;

Circumcised boys going to master bedroom

They believe that once a boy is circumcised, they should not go to their parents bedroom and even their sister’s bedroom.

This shows that once the act is done the boys are mature enough and so they should respect some areas to visit.

At this point the boys are expected to behave in a more mature way and expect their young ones to respect them.

Girls wearing trousers 

This is considered to be disrespectful if girls wear trousers, more so those tight ones that shows off their curves. The Kisii man is not supposed to see how blessed you are.

Screw driver: Why you should have this drink in your menu tonight!

Are you hearing this name for the first time and wondering what we are talking about?

Worry no more!

If you are a cocktail person, then this should be in your list tonight.

Screw driver is a drink that is so easy to make you could easily do it with your eyes closed (literally) and you wont screw up (see what i did there? No?  )

How you do it? Well, this drink is just a mixture of two drinks- Orange juice and Vodka, very easy right?



This only means that you do not necessarily have to go to restaurants to have this drink, you can actually make one yourself at your own comfort.

Let us give you a small history of the origin of this drink.

So decades ago, some American oil workers decided to take a break from their days’ work and decided to take a rest.

While on the break they decided to add vodka in their orange drink.

As they looked for something to stir their drink, well they could not find anything. What they used to stir was a screw driver.

The name screwdriver originated from events that happened that day.

7 type of neighbors you are likely to meet in Nairobi’s flats and estates

The search for greener pastures has seen many Kenyans relocate to Nairobi and its surroundings, creating more neighborhoods.

The government even introduced the ‘Nyumba Kumi’ initiative to be able to handle the rise of insecurity due to increase in ‘majirani’.

With the increase in population emerges a rare breed of neighbors who are not only annoying and petty but a pain as well for their uncouth behavior.

Here are the types of neighbors you are likely to find.

1. Nosy

We all have seen that one neighbor who wants to know anything and everything that happens in your house. From who you are dating to what you ate last night. They will always seek to find out where do you buy your clothes, who is that booty call who checks into your house at midnight on those lazy Saturday nights etc.

One would be mistaken to think they are compiling a top secret, classified report to give it to the police.

STYLE UP!!! Annoying Habits Kenyans Should Stop In Matatus

2. Stalkers

They are the kind of neighbors that stalk you wherever you go just to have some juicy information to share with other idle people who might be willing to listen to her. If they don’t do it physically, they create pseudo accounts to cyber stalk you.

She will befriend you on all social media platforms, come to your house uninvited and even try talking to you whether you want to or not.

3. Thieves

These are the kind of neighbors who have ‘mkono mrefu’ they never miss to see your new lingerie on the clothes line or a new pair of shoes and not grab them.

Problem comes in when you go and claim it as yours, they deny it so much even swearing with the names of their long dead ancestors.

4. Gossipers

Such neighbors are termed ‘BBC’ for their know it all attitude. They are better than CSI when it comes to investigating their neigbours. They have a PHD in not minding their business. Nothing seems to pass their ears.


They know who fathered who, who is dying, who killed who, where and when…It is lke they are always there when anything happens.

Stylish pastor Robert Burale’s unwritten rules to men and how to not to break the ‘bro code’

5. Drama Queens

This are the worst type of neighbors one could ever come across always causing drama at the slightest provocation. Always arguing over who fetches water first, whose clothes line they will hoard, why were you staring at their husband and many other petty issues.

Such neighbors also love attention and will do anything including shouting and name calling just to look like the ‘boss’.

6. Dirty and Unkempt

NEMA should arrest such neighbors for their unhealthy behavior which puts everyone at risk of getting communicable diseases such a cholera.

So annoying are these neighbors that it requires some self control not to get into a confrontation with them, they throw waste anywhere, leave uncovered diapers all over, leave the communal sink littered with food leftovers thus blocking it in the process.

Celebration in Ireland as ABORTION is legalized amidst rejection by some

7. Slay Queens

This neighbors are always idle, strutting along the corridors showcasing any thing new they might have bought including some cheap second hand dresses which leaves nothing to imagination.

They always have a mirror trying to re-pimp their make just in case the guy next door fails to notice them. Such neighbors pretend to be well versed when it comes to fashion when they actually know nothing at all.

Kenyan celebrities whose parents you did not know are pastors

Well here are some local celebrities you did not know are children of pastors

I found myself wishing my dad had an office job like other parents,” says Pitson who says his heart broke one time when his father gave him Ksh 30 to go buy himself a shirt while his friends traipsed all over town in the latest trendy attires.”


2. Amani

Amani who is now a gospel artiste strongly stated that despite her being secular artiste before, her parents were Christians and her mother a pastor.

In a post she explained that at some point she had to learn to ‘share’ her mother with other peole after all pastors are considered as ‘mum’ and ‘dad ‘ by their followers.

“As a pastors child I had to learn to share my mum…she always put her family first but had to pastor many.’’ The post read in part.Pastors have a lot to give and their kids are always surrounded with a lot of love but they have to learn how to share their parents with others for they are considered parents by many,’’

Men, Here Are A Few Tips On How To Impress Your Bae


Kenyan men argue that women are materialistic while on the other hand women argue that Kenyan men are stingy.

Could all this be due to conflict of interests? Or is it that our men don’t take time to understand what women want.

Today we give men a few hints on what really impresses women as you all know, mwanaume ni effort.

Designer Shoes

Just like the way to a man’s heart is through the stomach, the way to a woman’s heart is a nice designer shoe. Women love to look good and a nice pair of stilettos gives them that confidence and makes them feel beautiful. So in case you are wondering what to get her, just get that shoe.

For those who walk like ducks in heels, these are not meant for you


 Designer Handbag

A handbag is more like a woman’s baby, wherever she goes it goes too. Handbags are like a woman’s office and thus they strive to get the best brand in the market. It’s every woman’s dream  to own a designer handbag so go ahead and gift her that Gucci bag, or LOUIS VUITTON bag she has been eyeing.

Designer Perfume

We all want to start the day smelling good. Men, forget about buying your woman those cheap perfumes and deodorants sold by the roadside and get her some nice designer item.

She will not only be in a good mood but she will try and impress you too and you never know what she might settle for.


A Vacation

Going out on a vacation is every woman’s dream, with all the hustle and bustle around, an all paid vacation is the way to win  your woman’s heart .

This is a nice time for women to flaunt their curves and their bikini bodies. After all, that’s why women work so hard at the gym.

This can  only happen after the coronavirus pandemic.


Designer Make Up Kit

No one wants to walk with smudged lipstick or sweaty make up. Every woman wants to own a designer make up kit to achieve that flawless face. Go ahead and get her that and she will love you forever. After all mwanamke ni sura.

 A Man Who Cooks

We all want to be spoiled. A man who cooks for his woman is heaven sent. There is nothing more s3xy like a man in the kitchen.

It’s very romantic to come home to a warm meal and this act would warm even the hardest of hearts.


Spontaneous Surprises

Women love surprises. In this day and age, things are moving very fast that means that important events in our lives are slowly being overtaken, but no matter how petty it may sound women still expect you to remember all big days in their lives. To win a woman’s heart just keep tabs on when her birthday is, graduation and drop spontaneous gifts and notes and she will be yours forever.


So men, the next time you want to impress your woman, make sure these things are on your list.

5 Reasons why first impressions matter when going to see your in-laws

Maybe you have for a long time avoided meeting up with your fiancee’s family. Well truth is, first impressions can make or break a relationship.

All we are trying to say is that there is better reason to impress them now before you know, they finally become future in laws.

This is the first time they are meeting the guy or the lady they may be dealing with for decades. It’s a big moment

There are reasons why first impressions matter.

We have highlighted why this is the case,

1. Show of commitment

Most of the times when they get to see your partner, it’s a sign that you want to commit to their child.

That is a sign that they will be seeing you for a long while, if not forever.

This improves the relationship that you may be trying to build with your in laws and this first step is very important.


2. It is a judge of character

Most the times, when the in laws are meeting you for the first time, they simply want to know who you are.

Questions here and there from them may deduce the kind of person that you are.

Well in laws may tend to push buttons once in  a while, but basically all they want is to get to know you better.

3. In laws influence your partner

Now this is the part I would want to insist on.

Making good relationships with your in-laws is very important.

This is because , no matter how connected you are to your partner, they may have an upper hand in influencing them.

This however should not keep you off balance from making that decision to see them, creating that good connection and balance between the two of you could go a long way.



Truly Freaky: KOT amazed by how similar Pastor Burales ‘twin’ looks

4. They will be around you

Planning forever with your partner means planning forever with the family as well.

This only means that they will be around you for as much time as possible.

Through out the meeting stages, it is important to create a good rapport with them because this not only means a relationship with your partner,  it means a future relationship with their whole family.

Thus you need to have a good relationship with them before that life time.

in laws

5. You just genuinely want them to like you

Is this not everyone’s hope?

To just be liked and loved by the family of the person you want to spend forever with ?

On that first meeting above everything, all we want is to make that first connection that will last.

I started a TV station and after three years it didn’t work out.

I remember there were families depending on it as their source of daily bread, and to call them and tell them we are closing down and that we would be releasing some of them was the lowest moment in my entire life.”

Sometimes I meet them.

I’m glad some have jobs, but when I look back, if only I had the option, I would have given them. I would have wanted to have more people employed there.

2. Vera Sidika

Vera Sidika’s Hair Lounge specialised in selling of human hair weaves and extensions.

The lounge, which was located at the Greenhouse Mall, Adams Arcade along Ngong Road used to stock super expensive human hair and was expected to be a flourishing venture for her.

Speaking about her business failure in a past interview, the damsel said that the business failed because she was too young.

I am sure a lot of people know I had a high end hair line and it was doing quite well. But I think I was not ready in terms of strategising, planning.

I was a bit young, naive, I was very excited,” she said. 

3. Jack Ma

The owner of Ali Baba has had failure not only in business but in his professional life. As a job seeker, he was rejected in each and every job interview he went to looking for a job.

He says,

I went to get a job at KFC. 24 people lined up, 23 were taken, I was rejected. Five of us went to look for a job in the police. 4 were taken and I was rejected.

My cousin and I waited for two hours in a queue to be the waiter in a four-star hotel in my city on a very hot day.

My cousin’s scores were much lower than mine but he was picked and I was rejected.

This did not stop Jack from wanting more, he took the disappoint and pain and turned it into gold. He used it to build China’s biggest e-commerce company from scratch.

My man was begging me but I don’t get it.

I am not really married to him but we are making plans, he said he wants to be with me but he is not yet ready to marry.

I don’t know how to handle this girl at the gate, she is irritating me as I see her from my window.
