How many is plenty?

How much for majority?

How much groupie rich?

Is it two or more?

How much is minority?

How much wages life?

Is it Sudan? Is it Somalia that is known Africa?

Didn’t know they were ignorant till I heard them say,

How much longer dependency?

How much is enough?

How much is plurality?

How much is veto?

How much is plan to have it?

How much power is great got?

Isn’t it plurality?

How much is poverty in the market place?

An independent believer living at parent’s expense,

How much is independency in percentage?

How much more criminal civil injustice?

Is it right to be right on time’s right?

How much more?

How much less?

Dwindle and stare,

Leave it like don’t care,

A systematic stone cold,

Strangled and bruised alone,

Survival tone moves on,

Told to mend your own,

Plurality a chit and lie,

Wait for when we come in,

Tear down cities like cloth less summer,

I know that’s a white gown,

Excuse the singleness of unity,

Even massacre is statistical simple brutality,

Plurality is now scarcity,

Why do we social when the city is Capital?

A new society that’s obsessed to love,

I want that will make them look at me and talk proud of me I made them look,

Such rotten thought should never meet your mind,

Let us import love, peace and honor from within,

Then they will give it,

Let us see our need,

Let us say and mean it,

I’m tired of the house, can we go out and witness the wind as it pass,

Plural is plurality,

Plurality is oneness, Togetherness indeed.

Poverty is glamour to a well fed child. Would want to rub your skin so it be lit as his/hers, thinking yours is dirt. Why walk on such? You dearly need a birth that’s what I think is as clear as power on top of supremacy and consumerism as my eyes went to a swimming pool of thoughts to a brother I knew before Umbwe Secondary School. The time he was serving sentence at Karanga primary school, when we were next door neighbors.


Dear Good M. Ailyisa,


Kadogoo, Gudinho, Morgan was the name I influenced when I was Jayceon Taylor with Chuck Taylors hiding my toes. Unakumbuka lakini we played football together in our youth than the talks on the bench like heard so and so is your girlfriend and fools say they were on top of the game when I became the manager of the club you played at Don Bosco. Man mi ni m-legendary at young age eti hahaha I was your couch as Zinedine Zidane. Your age mate huh? !


How is life treating you my brother? Hope it doesn’t get easy so you climb high and forget that you the one who made me stop dating just for a moved on performance. By twenty-twenty I won’t be having twenty exes I cleaned my closets.


Remember that day you, Victor  Mangi Swai and I climbed on the rooftops pale uwanja wa maimoria nyumba za pembeni karibu na kwa mama Clementina? Looking our town and as all youth do on wasting the youth. Man you’re a brother and I ask nothing more than you are obligated to invite me a more chakula invites mzee cos all my friends do that man. Nothing personal. I’m just saying you should not even think of neglecting it.


This man thinks he can beat me on freestyle battle but all time he loses and that hurts his small child heart. He’s a die-hard fan back when I first spat on a record especially the part where the beat went out and my words were much heard. I too had a young primetime as any I don’t know about yours and I don’t care as systematic.


How many times we had to wait for the fields to be harvested for a league to begin? Mbigiri zimeumiza hii miguu mpaka ikajaa ganzi.


Man our childhood was beastly beautiful.


Till next time,

Nani atayekupenda kama mimi,

Nani atakutunza nikienda?

Nani atakukumbata nikiondoka?

Natamani nimjue kabla sijaenda,


Nani atanipenda kabla sijaenda,

Nakusihi nijulishe,

Moyo ufurahi, nafsi yangu uihuishe,

Yupi atanipenda milele? Nakuomba unijuze,


Nataraji moyo unipishe,

Roho usinitishe,

Kumbukumbu vazi jema mnivike,

Hizi mbiu mbele zenyu zisifike,

Masikioni zisikike,


Mboni hazioni fumbo hili beberu,

Simaanishi fahamu zenyu duni, hasha, hamuoni mnachotaka,

Ndio mwanzo mnatapa,

Bila doti la khanga kizunguzungu chauzungusha upendo,

Sisemi bila pesa kuna chembechembe za pendo,

Yatutesa hili fungu lojaa magendo,

It’s 1 a.m. outside looking at the stars, listening to the wind taking me back to the days I felt touched. Let me drive you to the abyss they call first sight, though mine was first heard. We were both disappointments, tender and naive.


That’s when this special lady appeared on the scene to remind me that each friend introduced by a friend always stays longer. My number uno defenseless I tried keep but love stories end with a worded lived happily ever after. Mine was by landslide a land mine, an heaven sent.


Not knowing heaven sent was this one in front of  me, the best friend for life only if I knew could  have kept you more you would have known me better. They could have know me bettered. Now I’m hustling to keep in smart could you wait? Would you wait? Could have waited till I made thriller? No? Yes? Does it matter? We all living outside our realm, we all dreamless we find emptier as deep we go, we outside looking in.


Dear Hanim Khaleed


You are one of you kind, loved your face before we had smart phones ask me how I knew it when till now we haven’t met. Your eyes seem to look similar to my imaginations. Beautiful. Your heart is that touched me. I looked into what you saw in me I find it boring and stupid.


Thank you for the love I felt and feel. Loyalty by Kendrick Lamar featuring Rihanna is my favorite song you know how I like it replacing Riri to keep you in the video singing instead for loyal is next to your skin. Your recent fave wild thoughts I like it it too, don’t ask me how and why cos I wouldn’t be obliged to answer that and say more than have already said.


You are priceless!! Keep some time ahead so you can read another OPEN LETTER 9 from a crush long time ago.


You know my ex and I don’t talk but she would love to hear that bothered me to date. Who has stayed that long without wanting me date her? It’s only her on standard.


I’m sorry for my heart being this timid and scared. Sorry if I went beyond.


Thank you,

Dumbed- down, simplified so as to be intellectually un demanding and accessible to a wide audience.


American public school children have been deliberately “dumbed down” and indoctrinated – rather than educated to accept the global plantation on the dissolution of American sovereignty and liberty.


Originally the term DUMBING DOWN was used as a slag expression to mean “revising so as to appeal to those of lower education or intelligence”.

The most obvious example of how Americans have been dumbed down is through this nation’s failed public education system. At one time not that long a go America reigned supreme as a leading model for the rest of the world providing the best quality free public education system on the planet.

But over the last many decades while much of the rest of the world has been passing us by, it seems an insidious federal agenda has been implemented to condition and brainwash that simply does what it’s told, and of course the brainwashing commences early in America’s school.


We live in a culture of aid.

We live in a culture in which those who are better off subscribe – both mentally and financially – to the nation that giving alms to the poor is the right thing to do. In the past fifty years, over US$ 1 trillion in development – related aid has been transferred from rich countries to Africa, in the past decade alone , on the back of live 8, make poverty history, the millennium challenge account, the Africa commission, and the 2005 G7 meeting (to name a few), millions of dollars each year have been raised in richer countries to support charities working for Africa.


What is aid?

Aid is help, assist or support someone or something in the achievement of something.


1. Emergency or short-term aid, this is needed after sudden disaster such as the 2000 Mozambique floods or the 2004 Asian tsunami.

2. Conditional or tied aid, this is when one country donates money or resources to another but with conditions attached.

3. Charitable aid, this is funded by donations from the public through organization

4. Long-term or development aid, this involves providing local communities with education and skills for sustainable development usually through organization such as practical action.

5. Multilateral aid, this is given through international organization such as the world bank rather than by one specific country.

Those are the types of aid.





– We already spend a vast amount on foreign aid.

– The money we spent has had little or no effect.

– The problem is so large, my giving can make no real difference.

– Charity begins at home, we should solve our own problems first.

– Aid is useless due to corruption in the government who receive it.

– Aid just makes developing countries dependent on handouts.

– Because it leads to over population, aid only increases the problems.

– We don’t need charity, we need political action

– Economic growth is going to lift people out of poverty, we should just focus on growth.

– We should support health systems strengthening instead of supporting vertical intervention that might not be sustainable

– Stopping tax evasion by multinational corporations will close the gap in finance for development.


The us spends 25% budget each year on foreign aid.

They give money to Africa and nothing changes.


You may not be able to end poverty on your own, but all great movements are made up of individuals actions. If we all donated a percentage of own income to the most effective charities, together we could actually end extreme poverty in this life time.


Kibibi Wandi, 01/04/2017 review on dead aid by D. Moyo.




SOCIALISM: You have two cows, and you give one to your neighbor.


COMMUNISM: You have two cows, the government takes both and gives you milk.


FASCISM: You have two cows, the government takes both and sells you milk.


NAZISM: You have two cows, the government takes them and kills you.


CAPITALISM: You have two cows, you sell one and buy a male. You multiply your cows and there is economic growth. You sell them, you retire and you live on your profits.


MODERN CAPITALISM: You have two cows, you sell one and buy a male. You multiply your cows and you buy those of your neighbors. The latter become your shepherds, you pay them in monkey currencies and they die poor.


AMERICAN SOCIETY: You have two cows, you sell one and you have to make the other one to produce milk like 4 cows. By dint of producing beyond her capacity, she dies. You take a consultant to understand this death.


FRENCH SOCIETY: You have two cows, you go on strike because you want a third.


GERMAN SOCIETY: You have two cows, you modify them so that they live 100 years, eat once a month and treat themselves.


CHINESE SOCIETY: You have two cows, you sell milk to your compatriots and you produce plastic milk to export to the rest of the world.


BLACK/ AFRICAN SOCIETY: You have two cows, you eat them all the same day and you dream that donors or the international community give you others. You go to a church or a mosque pray to Jesus or Allah for them to give you other cows. You fast 40 days and 40 nights without eating or drinking so that the cows will fall from Heaven. You recite “Hail Mary” a million times without success. You look for passages that speak of cows in the Bible or the Quran hoping to see the cows appear. At the end  you have no strength to read the Bible or the Quran. You become a prophet of _the good news of the cows_ that will be coming soon. You die in extreme poverty.
